As the Playoffs approach, it’s a good time for Hedging your NFL Tickets

Football, especially the way it is played at the professional level, is not a delicate game. Rather, it’s a dose of blunt force trauma in a world that typically goes out of its way to avoid such things.

Maybe that’s why football games are such a spectacle, requiring tens of thousands of people in the stands–and millions more watching on TV–to fully appreciate the struggle taking place on the field.

Fans who are able to pay the high prices for acquiring tickets to an NFL game expect to see their team–generally the home team–win the game. Whether it’s a blowout or a squeaker that comes down to the final play from scrimmage, the home team emerges victorious more often than not in professional football.

Cubs fans have indeed waited all their lives for this

This weekend is something that a sizable part of Chicago has waited for 71 years to see happen.

Some Philadelphia sports fan set down his sour grapes long enough to call into a national sports talk show on Thursday night, and lament that Cubs fans who claim to have waited “all their life” for this moment are forgetting about the White Sox in the World Series back in 2005. That shows how little a Philly fan knows about baseball in Chicago.

The Area Around Wrigley Field Has Mostly Been Erased

Anyone who’s ever seen the movie Field of Dreams knows all about the James Earl Jones speech toward the end of the movie. It’s as though Darth Vader came back from the future, put on an amiable face and an old hat, and told us all what we should already know: Baseball marks the time. There’s some imagery from this speech–“America has been erased like a blackboard”–  that is playing out right now at the intersection of  Clark and Addison Streets in Chicago, where Wrigley Field is located.

MLB Already Got The NBA And NHL Beat

With the All-Star break exactly a week away, MLB is about to take a few days off. Names like Trout and Bryant and Ortiz will give baseball fans a show in San Diego’s Petco Park next week, but the vast majority of MLB’s players get a couple of days to go home, instead. And after at least 82 games already this season, they can use a little relaxation.

It’s Baseball Season Now

The NBA Finals went to seven games this year, and it was an exciting end to the season. For all the talk of how the playoffs weren’t very competitive this year, Game 7 more than made up for it. Congratulations to the Cavaliers and the city of Cleveland. It certainly was a long time in coming

Goin’ to the Ballpark and We’re Gonna Get Married

By R Lincoln Harris

Love is in the air this year, especially at Wrigley Field. The venerable old park has been undergoing a makeover in recent years, and the enormous scoreboard in the left field bleachers is perhaps the most obvious upgrade of all. Last week, the scoreboard even served as a makeshift wedding chapel.

Eye-Popping Ballpark Foods

My mother used to always say to me when I piled too much food on my plate, “Your eyes were bigger than your stomach!”. Well these ballpark gastro-masterpieces fit right into that category. With an urgency for teams to enhance the in-game experience, food concessionaires are pulling out all the stops to make a spectacular food item as popular as a home run. Below are some of the new items to hit the stands in 2016:

Atlanta Braves– The Burgerizza
Can’t decide if you crave a burger or pizza? Well now you don’t have to with The Burgerizza! It’s a burger with a pepperoni pizza as the top bun. Maybe you can share it with your section at Turner Field!

New York Mets– 108 Burger
Pat Lafrieda has been making special blends of meat for years. Now he has introduced the 108 Burger at Citi Field. It’s available at Keith’s Grill in Section 132. It’s filled with New York love. The burger comes with hand-sliced pastrami, Havarti cheese and smeared with NY deli mustard. All of this delivered on a pretzel bun.

Kansas City Royals – Champions Alley Burger & Hot Dog
The World Champions are celebrating their victory with new tasty treats at Kaufman Stadium. New to the team is a double play duo of the Champions Alley Burger & Hot Dog. The hot dog comes wrapped in bacon and the burger is stuffed with cheese. Both items are tempura-battered for extra goodness!

Pittsburgh Pirates – Cracker Jack & Mac Dog
PNC Park takes the phrase “Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks…” to the next level. Take a hot dog, add some mac & cheese, sprinkle on some jalapenos, and cover it with Cracker Jacks. But wait, there’s more- top the whole thing with caramel! Pirates fans are in for a treat, and a Cracker Jack prize just might be inside!

Texas Rangers– The Wicked Pig
Everybody knows everything is bigger in Texas. The Wicked Pig is no exception. Why not have one sandwich when you can have a double? This double-decker work of art is stacked with pulled pork, bacon, sausage, prosciutto, ham and pork rinds. Add coleslaw and a slathering of barbecue sauce and you are in Wicked Pig heaven. This treat will cost you $27 but its worth it!

New York Yankees – The Barnyard Wedding
Not a lot of barns around Yankee Stadium but the Yankees are presenting the Barnyard Wedding sandwich to their fans this year. This custom-blended beef burger is topped with cheddar cheese, a fried chicken cutlet, hash browns and barbecue sauce, all nested inside a pretzel bun. The farm is well represented when the Yankee fans take a bite of this marriage of fan favorites!
