Packers 2012 Preseason Games at Lambeau Field

Green Bay Packers Preseason
The Green Bay Packers played their second 2012 preseason game last night, losing to the Cleveland Browns, 35-10.  Packers fans want to see more from the defense this year, and two players stood out at Lambeau on Thursday evening. Two rookies look to contribute this season, and were doing good things in the secondary.  Casey Hayward was as close to a pick six as you can get, when he got in front of Josh Gordon’s outstretched arms.  Throughout the night, he managed to keep his man in check, but for a few completions. 
Jerron McMillian showed some spark in the second quarter when he had a solo tackle for a two yard loss, and stuffed Brandon Jackson on a short gain just a couple plays later. McMillian loves to hit, and the Packers coaching staff is honing his skills accordingly. He’s fighting for a spot in the nickel and dime defense, and has to prove that he’s a better bet than Anthony Levine or M.D. Jennings.

Aaron Rodgers Connects With Jordy Nelson

Aaron Rodgers found Jordy Nelson in the end zone on a play that he basically repeated, after Nelson came up short on a pass down the sideline. Aaron looked sharp, and played just enough to get loose, before Harrell took over for most of the night. Graham has some work to do, but it’s looking like he will secure the spot of backup. Next up for the Packers is another Thursday night game.  They head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. Game time is set for 6pm.  Green Bay Packers tickets for the final preseason game are on sale now.

Badgers Hockey Schedule for Kohl Center and Away Games

Kohl Center Tickets
The Kohl Center in Madison Wisconsin is home to both the Badgers Hockey and Basketball teams. This winter, the Badger Men’s hockey team will play eighteen games at home, starting with the “U.S. Under 18 team” game on October 6. That one is not an official Badgers hockey game, but it gives folks a glimpse of the up and coming talent from the region. The first home game for the Badgers is on November 2, when they face Colorado College. That’s game one of a two game series.

The Badgers will head to Minneapolis to take on the Golden Gophers for a pair of road games on November 16 and 17. Between November 23 and December 14, the team will have six home games, and a pair of away games in Denver. Their first game of 2013 will be on January 4, at Anchorage.

Bucks Tickets for 2012-13 Season Available Now

Bucks tickets
In just a couple of months, the Milwaukee Bucks will kick off their 2012-13 season.  This is the first full NBA season since the strike shortened affair of last year.  It all starts with a preseason game at the United Center in Chicago.  There will be a second preseason game against the Washington Wizards at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.  That game is set for 10/20.  The first official game will be an exciting match up between Milwaukee and Boston.  Bucks tickets for all home and away games are already available.

The Bucks first regular season home game will be against the the Cavaliers.  That November 3 game is one of two home games to be played before they head to the Verizon Center in Washington DC.  That one game road trip will be followed up with one game back in Milwaukee.  They will play the Celtics on a Saturday night, 11/10.  Expect the team to try to make their mark early in the season.  Milwaukee will head to Philadelphia for one game, then once again come back to Milwaukee for a pair of games against the Pacers and Hornets.

Joel Przybilla Comes Back to Milwaukee

The Bucks will be without Andrew Bogut for the first time in years.  They have Samuel Lambert, Drew Gooden, and Ekpe Udoh to take his place at Center.  Who will step up and make their mark under the hoop?  We won't know until later this fall.  In 2011, Ekpe Udoh came to Milwaukee from Golden State.  He averaged 5.5 points per game, and pulled down nearly four rebounds during his usual 20 minutes on the court each night.  He will be called upon to support Joel Przybilla, who signed a one year deal just three days ago.  Przybilla started his NBA career in Milwaukee, and looks to finish his time in basketball back here it all started.  He's had multiple procedures on both knees, and will have limited playing time for sure.

My Morning Jacket Milwaukee | BMO Harris Pavilion

BMO Harris Pavilion
As promised, the BMO Harris Pavilion will be booking shows for post-Summerfest concerts.  After all, it's a beautiful venue.  The next show on the list is My Morning Jacket, and they perform this Saturday.  The show starts at 7:30, and the opening act is none other than Band of Horses. 

BMO Harris Pavilion Layout and Sections

For those of you who didn't make it down to Summerfest this year, the BMO Harris Pavilion is new to the grounds.  It replaces the old M&I stage, right next to the Marcus Amp.  This is not your typical Summerfest side stage.  The pavilion is under cover, with assigned seats for nearly ten thousand people.  The stage faces west, which means that your view of the stage has Lake Michigan as its backdrop.  From what I have heard, it's an amazing view.  There are 13 sections in total, with five sections that are just in front of the stage.  Sections six through thirteen are set behind one through five.  During the Summerfest run, there is room enough for folks to stand behind the assigned seats.  The venue is set low, so those that have to stand in the back can see the stage with no obstructions.

This is not a four season venue.  Aside from the roof, it's wide open to the wind, rain, and Milwaukee winters.  Given time, I'll bet that this venue becomes a favorite for those who head down to Summerfest.  The last show of the season will feature none other than Elvis Costello.  Costello plays on September 15.

Jimmy Buffett Tickets for Alpine Valley

Jimmy Buffett Alpine Valley Tickets
Turn the calendar to August, and you will see that Jimmy Buffett is scheduled to perform at Alpine Valley on August 25.  Buffett fans are called "Parrotheads," and they are excited to know that this show is just a few weeks away.  All they need is a bit of sun, and a parking lot to party in before Jimmy Buffett hits the stage. Alpine Valley has at least one of those two things. There is nothing they can do about the sun.  Either way, the event will be great. 

Jimmy Buffett tickets are currently priced at $59 each for lawn tickets.  Pavilion seating is priced higher, but if you buy a pavilion ticket, you will be under cover, and have an actual seat to sit in.  Some folks say that there is more fun to be had in the lawn section.  I'll bet that's the case during a Buffett show.
