Ford Field Tickets For Packers Games | Ticket King Inc.

The Green Bay Packers face the Detroit Lions this Sunday at Ford Field. With both teams at 1-1 for the season, a win for either side would be a huge "leg up" for the victor. Which team will come out on top? Odds makers have the Packers at five point favorites right now. Given the fact that the advantage for home teams starts at three points, it looks like the "experts" are leaning towards a Green Bay victory.

The Lions have one of the best wide receivers in the league, but Green Bay has a powerful weapon at the same position. Jordy Nelson is coming off of his best game of his career, but still thinking about the few missed opportunities from last week's affair with the Jets. As for Calvin Johnson, he posted his career best game against our Green Bay Packers in 2001, putting up 244 receiving yards, but the Lions came out on the short end of the stick that day.

Green Bay has a few more weapons on the offensive side of the ball, when compared to Detroit. Still, both teams have a quarterback that can be a threat throughout the four quarters. Will Green Bay stand at 2-1 at the end of the day this Sunday?

Red Wings Tickets | Detroit Red Wings 2014 Schedule

Red Wings 2014 tickets
It's the time of year when NHL hockey action is fast approaching. Teams have eight preseason games to play, and most of them start the preseason around the third week in September.  The final games of the 2014 hockey season end around Mid April.  That means the season is nearly twice as long as pro football. Who is the team to watch in 2014? The Detroit Red Wings. Red wings tickets for home and away games sell out fast.  Especially the home games at Joe Lewis Arena. After all, the Red Wings have a long and rich history, with many Stanley Cup titles to their name.

The Red Wings begin their regular season at home, against the Boston Bruins. As luck would have it, the final preseason game is also against Boston. The Red Wings will have a three game home stand to start the season, then they hit the road for one game, before coming back to the Joe Louis arena on October 18.  The Red Wings will have six home games in October, and four road games. They will start November on the road for three games, before returning home to face the New Jersey Devils on November 7.

Brewers Home Games September 2014 | Brewers Playoff Tickets and Game Dates

Brewers tickets September 2014
The Milwaukee Brewers have just a few more weeks to prove themselves worthy of a playoff spot. After spending almost the entire 2014 season in first place, the team now is in a struggle for that spot they owned for so much of this summer.  Will these next few weeks prove that the Brew Crew has what it takes, or will we look back at 2014 and ask ourselves "What went wrong?" How can you help? You can get to a Brewers game in 2014, before the season ends, and before they (hopefully) make the playoffs.  Here are the remaining home Brewers games. Get on over to Miller Park and cheer them on to victory!

Brewers Home Games In September 2014

The Brewers take on the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park on September 4. The series continues for three more games, before the Miami Marlins come to Milwaukee. In that series, the teams will face each other for four games. The Reds will take on the Brewers for three games right after that. So yes, we are looking at a home stand of eleven games in eleven days. The last series at home for Milwaukee will be against the Chicago Cubs.  The game dates are September 26 through September 28.

Brewers Playoff Tickets For 2014

Should the team make the MLB playoffs, their first game is set for either a "wild card" one game playoff on September 30, or they get a break and start their first playoff series on October 2. We're all hoping for the latter.  Go Brewers!

Favre Retirement Jersey Game Date Set For 2015 | Packers Retired Jerseys and Players

Favre Retirement Jersey
It looks like the Green Bay Packers relationship with their former star quarterback; Brett Favre has found a “happy place.”  Earlier this month, the franchise announced that it would honor Favre in 2015 as just their sixth Packer ever to have his number retired. The recognition comes just seven years after the Mississippi native left the team (not without controversy) after announcing his retirement. We all know the story, he then returned to football, to play for the New York Jets and then the Minnesota Vikings.

No date for the retirement of Favre's number “4” jersey has been announced, though officials with the team told reporters that it will likely be a primetime game against a division opponent. Speculative minds have supposed that the Chicago Bears, the Packers long-time rivals, will likely be the visiting team. Spokespeople also revealed that they would like to celebrate Favre's induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame that same night.

The date for the quarterback's official induction has been set for July 18, 2015. He is the sole inductee of that year's class. All five other retired jerseys have also been accepted into the Packers Hall of Fame at Lambeau Field, as well as the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

Retired Packers Jerseys Number in the Few

Don Hudson (14) was the first Packer to have his jersey retired, in 1951. Tony Canadeo (3) was retired the following year. It wouldn't be until 20 years later that quarterback Bart Starr (15) would become the third Packers jersey to retire, in 1972. Ray Nitschke (66) had his number retired at a December 1984 game against the Bears, while the late Reggie White received the honor just one year after his death, in 2005.

Favre spoke with team officials and reporters through a video-conference call on the day of the announcement. He told them that despite the emotions surrounding his exit from the team in 2008, he was and always will be a Packer. He thanked the fans for their support of the decision and compared the shock of receiving the honor as similar to his first win with the team in 1992.

Since that win against the Bengals as a stand-in for the injured Don Majkowski, Favre amassed 9 pro bowl appearances, two NFC Championships, and one Super Bowl. He managed passing records in almost every category, highlighted by surpassing Dan Marino as the quarterback with the most receiving yards.
