Bowl Season almost here

For College Football fans, there is no better time of year.... The season enters it's stretch run, Rivalry Saturday and Conference Championship games are coming up and Bowl Season is right around the corner. Teams are battling for position in the BCS standings, with the top 2 teams on 12/2 earning the chance to play in the BCS National Championship Game @ Louisiana Superdome New Orleans 1/7/08. The 2 most likely participants are #1 LSU and #2 Oregon. However, #3 Kansas is undefeated and if it wins out, would likely leapfrog Oregon into the #2 spot. The argument against Kansas is that they haven't played anyone, that argument loses steam as they face #5 Missouri on 11/24 and possibly #4 Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship 12/1 @ San Antonio Alamodome. Winning those 2 games, finishing the season undefeated and winning the Big 12, should be enough to get the Jayhawks into the Championship. But, it will be VERY tough for them to finish without a loss. LSU would need to do it's part by winning out and winning the SEC Championship 12/1 @ Atlanta Georgia Dome. Oregon, would need to beat Arizona & UCLA on the road and beat in state rival Oregon State in order to stay in the running. Should any of those teams lose, #4 Oklahoma, #5 Missouri and #6 West Virginia all wait in the wings eager to take their spot. The Bowl matchups are officially announced 12/2. Whether you are looking for BCS Championship tickets, Orange Bowl tickets, Rose Bowl tickets, Sugar Bowl tickets, Fiesta Bowl tickets, or tickets to any of the other Bowl games this season, requesting tickets just got easier!

Lakers off to promising start

All the offseason drama and doom and gloom regarding the Lakers has fallen by the wayside as the purple and gold have gotten off to a promising 2-1 start to the new season. Even more surprising is that it's not the result of superhuman efforts by Kobe Bryant. Their fast start is due to the much improved play of youngsters Andrew Bynum and Jordan Farmar, the inspired play of Ronny Turiaf, the savvy veteran leadership of Derek Fisher, the deft passing of Luke Walton and the sharp shooting of Vladmir Radmonovic and Sasha Vujacic. Yes, the much maligned supporting cast that Kobe had seemingly thrown under the bus, has stepped up and proven itself capable in this young season. All this without the injured Lamar Odom (due back shortly). As for Kobe, he is still playing at his normal superstar level. What is most impressive about his performance so far has been how well rounded it has been. He has scored when needed, set up his teammates and played exceptional & inspired defense. If this continues, one has to wonder if Kobe's trade demands will also go by the wayside..... Looking for Lakers tickets this season at Staples Center? Visit www.ticketrequest.com/sports.html

Led Zeppelin reschedules reunion show

Rock legends Led Zeppelin have rescheduled their highly anticipated reunion concert from November 26 to December 10 in London, due to guitarist Jimmy Page breaking his finger. Page will not be able to play guitar for three weeks while he recovers. Led Zeppelin split in 1980 after the death of drummer John Bonham and last took the stage 12 years ago at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The concert venue holds 20,000 fans and many die-hard Zeppelin fans had organized trips from around the world to attend the concert this month. Tickets were allocated by ballot and more than 1 million fans registered for a chance to see the legendary rock group. Page will be joined by singer Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones, and Bonham's son Jason Bonham will be the drummer. The show will be a tribute to the late founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun, who signed the group in 1968.
