Lady Gaga Milwaukee Summerfest Tickets | Ticket King Wisconsin

Summerfest announced one of their biggest shows for 2014.  It will be Lady Gaga at the Marcus Amphitheater on June 26th. Summerfest tickets for Lady Gaga are available on our Ticket King website this week. The ARTPOP tour will be in full swing by this summer, and it starts on May 4 at the B and T Center in Florida.  Gaga swings through the Midwest during the summer months, with dates in San Diego, San Jose in early June, and the Summerfest date after that, it looks like the ARTPOP tour will be filling a few more show dates in the near future.

Lady Gaga appeals to fans of all ages, with one of the flashiest shows currently on tour.  She doesn't call it a "Music - Fashion - Dance - Party" for nothing.  It's all of that and more. One of the more remarkable events on the Gaga tour will take place on April 7th, when she will be the final act at the Roseland Ballroom in New York. Tickets for the Roseland show will surely go fast.

Lady Gaga can be found on SNL, Ellen Degeneres, and the Bro Show.  Check out the clip below.

 

After months of touring to support the Born This Way tour, she injured her hip.  This tour makes up for the cancelled dates and does so much more. She truly loves to be a performer, and wants to give back to the devoted fans.

Pink Tickets For Milwaukee Show On January 9 | Ticket King Wisconsin

Pink Tickets Milwaukee Show
Pink fans are gearing up for her January 9th show at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee. As she had postponed the original date, the wait has been longer than first expected. The opening act is none other than New Politics.  This is part of her Truth About Love tour, and there are roughly twenty more show dates before she takes a well deserved break.  Back in October, Pink was battling inflamed vocal cords. She was forced to rest her "pipes" for a while, and moved eight show dates into January of 2014.

As usual, her current show is filled with acrobatic dancers, flames, and flashy stage effects. Not that Pink needs any of that.  Her powerful voice is more than enough to attract fans from all over the world.  The stage show is just a bonus!

Way back when, "Pink" was in a girl band called Choice. Fast forward a few years, and Pink has become one of the most popular solo artists currently on tour. With over 100 million records sold, she's fast becoming an icon in pop music.  In her early years, she was a gymnast, and tried out for various all girl groups. When she struck out on her own, the success soon followed. Pink is one of the top selling female artists of the decade. Check out Pink when she comes to Milwaukee!

Packers Tickets For Upcoming Vikings and Lions Games Available Now | Ticket King Green Bay Office Open On Game Day

Packers versus Vikings tickets
The Green Bay Packers take on the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field this Sunday. The outcome of the game means much more to the Packers than it does to the Vikings. At 5-5 and working with a third string backup quarterback, Green Bay can still work their way into the playoffs. With a victory against Minnesota, and one more week for Rodgers to heal, things could be looking good for the Packers versus Lions matchup on Thanksgiving Day. 

Packers versus Vikings Tickets


Ticket King has Packers versus Vikings tickets available up until kickoff at Lambeau Field. Green Bay has won six of the last seven games, and their victory at the Metrodome this season was basically a blow out. The Packers are still without key players on both sides of the ball, but there is hope.  Scott Tolzien has managed to move the ball up and down the field, but has struggled to get it into the end zone. He’s not without confidence, and has taken over as the backup, over Seneca Wallace. Now if he could just keep from throwing those interceptions. 

Packers Take on Lions at Ford Field


Packers fans will flock to Ford Field on November 28. That’s Thanksgiving Day, and Green Bay will play the red hot Lions on the road. Tickets for games at Ford Field tend to be lower in price when compared to the Packers – Lions game at Lambeau Field. Green Bay has won 15 of the last 16 games against the Lions, but this year their opponent is a much better foe. Will the Packers keep up that momentum? By next Friday, Green Bay could be 7-5.  Let’s hope so! 

Ticket King For Packers Tickets And Tailgate



Since 1992, Ticket King has been a trusted source for Packers tickets. Our company opened a Green Bay ticket office in 1997, just down the road from Lambeau Field. In 2004, we moved to a new location that is just south of the Don Hudson Center, within yards of the stadium. Picking up game tickets in Green Bay is very easy. We have short term, long term parking, and a drive through window! Park in our lot on game day and set up the grill. If you want to let someone else do the cooking, consider our Green Bay Distillery tailgate option. They know how to throw a party. See you at the game. Go Packers!

Badgers Take Down Gators In Home Opener At The Kohl Center

Badgers Basketball tickets
It's early in the season, but after last night Badgers basketball fans got a great idea of what the team is capable of.  They took down the 11th ranked Florida Gators at the Kohl Center last night. Early in the game, it didn't look so great, but by half time, the Badgers were in control. What was the key to victory? Three point shooting, and just enough rebounding to take the edge off Florida.

When you scan the stats, Wisconsin and Florida finished the evening looking pretty even in every category but one.  That would be three point completion percentage. Wisconsin ended the evening with a .450 three- point shooting percentage, while Florida managed just .357.  The Badgers struggled early in the game, but came back swiftly, and was in the lead at half time.  It must be noted that Florida was without three key players. Damontre Harris, Dorian Finney-Smith, and Scottie Wilbekin all sat out last night's game. Catching Florida now might have helped Wisconsin with the victory.

Sophomore forward Sam Dekker was hot last night. He finished the night with 16 points and a pair of rebounds. Ben Brust was a force under the hoop. He pulled down nine rebounds in the contest, and scored eleven points. His field goal shooting percentage sits at a dismal .424, but that's probably the only weakness he has right now.  The Badgers ended the night with 31 rebounds, and scored 20 points in the paint. Now it's on to Green Bay for an in-state contest on November 16.

Packers Games At County Stadium | Notable Green Bay Games In Milwaukee

Packers at County Stadium in Milwaukee
Milwaukee became the Green Bay Packers home-away-from-home during the 1953 season. In the midst of the first Packers “dark age” between 1945 and 1958, the occasional Packers game played in Milwaukee was meant to drum-up fan support and extra revenue for the struggling team. Dismal team play, beginning in the late 1940’s had taken its toll on the once dominant organization, which was facing a dwindling fan-base at Green Bay's City Stadium.

Gene Ronziani was the first Packers head coach to lead the team at what was then the newly built County Stadium in Milwaukee. Green Bay had played in the metro Milwaukee area before. They played at State Fair Park and at Marquette University, going as far back as 1933. Ronziani managed just two wins in that 1953 season, losing the inaugural meeting in Milwaukee to Cleveland 27-to-0.

Despite the best efforts of the Packers throughout the late 1950s (including a franchise worst 1-and-10 in 1958,) attendance at the team's games in Milwaukee was steady. The team would play in front of twice the size of the average crowd at Green Bay's City Stadium. County Stadium also provided the players with modern locker-rooms and the franchise with concessions revenue. Playing games in Milwaukee helped the team to raise over $100,000 something needed to avoid a looming bankruptcy.  The league took notice of the additional revenue prompting those same officials to threaten a permanent move to Milwaukee if the team could not build a new stadium in Green Bay. 

New City Stadium was the result. It was part of a city-wide referendum that passed in Green Bay. The team had a modern place to play, and the team was now coached by Lisle Blackhorn. Vice President Richard Nixon broke-ground at the site on the day of the team's 1957 home opener against Chicago. The Packers won that game 21-17, though they would only manage two more wins on the entire season. Not until Vince Lombardi took-over the team in 1959 would they see their first winning season in over 12 years.

Even with the avoidance of a permanent move to Milwaukee, the organization continued to play at County Stadium until December 1994. The Atlanta Falcons were the last team to meet the Packers at County Stadium. Quarterback Brett Favre helped the Packers win one last time at County Stadium with a 9-yard touchdown run in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter.

Notable Packers Games at Milwaukee County Stadium (1953-1994)

  • September 27th, 1953 – Inaugural game at County Stadium; 27-0 loss to the Cleveland Browns.
  • December 23rd, 1967 – First and only NFL playoff game held at County Stadium; Packers defeat the Los Angeles Rams 28-7 in Western Conference Championship; One week later the team hosts the Dallas Cowboys at Lambeau Field for the infamous Ice Bowl.
  • November 10th, 1974 – Packers defeat arch-rival Chicago in the Bears sole trip to County Stadium.
  • November 26th, 1989 – 55,892 – record attendance for a Packers game at County Stadium; Green Bay beats the Vikings 20-19; Minnesota was the most played against opponent in Milwaukee, making 15 appearances at the venue.
  • December 18th, 1994 – Final Packers game at County Stadium; Brett Favre runs for a last-second touchdown to defeat Atlanta 21-17.

Packers Monday Night Football Tickets Available | Green Bay Hosts Chicago

Packers versus Bears Monday Night Football tickets
Green Bay will host the Bears on Monday night at Lambeau Field. Packers Monday Night Football tickets are still available for the game, and can be picked up in our Milwaukee or Green Bay office. Will the Packers make it five in a row? Ticket King sure hopes so. The 2013 Packers schedule has five more home games to be played, and four road games. This will be the first Bears versus Packers game of the season.

Jay Cutler Out For Upcoming Packers Game

When Chris Baker sacked Jay Cutler during the October 20th game, it looked like a "nothing special" play. Cutler didn't get up from the turf, and that's when Bears fans knew something was amiss. Cutler suffered a groin injury on that play, and he will miss a few more weeks of play.  He hopes to make it back in the next three weeks, but doctors are saying that it will be a month before he can return to the field. This also happens to be Cutler's last season before he and the Bears begin contract talks. A swift return that results in a re injured groin could devalue his future earnings.  But Cuter isn't seeing things that way.  He wants to get back to the game as soon as possible.

Matthews Out For Monday Night

Clay Matthews is certain to be out for the the Bears game.  Matthews is still dealing with a broken thumb that came about during the Lions game on October 6.  If he gets back into the lineup next week, that would mean he was out for just as long as predicted. In the meantime, A.J. Hawk has impressed fans with his performance.  One big mishap for Hawk was when he failed to stop Adrian Peterson from scoring just before the half last week. Considering how many Packers linebackers are out, the remaining healthy players have done pretty well.

James Jones Still Recovering 

James Jones has not practiced as of this week.  That doesn't mean that he's out for Monday night, but all indications are that he will be sidelined once again.  The injury to his knee is healing, and nobody wants him to rush back into the game. As of this posting, Jones has twenty catches and two touchdowns. Against Baltimore, Jones had just one catch before going down with a knee sprain. Who has stepped up in his place? Jarrett Boykin certainly has. Boykin has over a dozen catches in the last two games. That has taken the pressure off Jordy Nelson.  Check out Ticket King for all Packers home and away games.  See you at Lambeau Field.

Four Things To Do This Week In Milwaukee | Ticket King Wisconsin

Jersey Boys Uhlein Hall Milwaukee
Milwaukee isn't just a sports and festival town. Sure, when summer is in full swing, the thing to do is head on down to the lakefront and take in the sites at one of the many ethnic festivals.  The Brewers wrapped up their season nearly one month ago, the Bucks have yet to play their first regular season game, and the Summerfest grounds are closed for the season. So what is a Milwaukee city dweller to do this week?

Jersey Boys At Uhlein Hall
Check out the Broadway In Milwaukee musical Jersey Boys at Uhlein Hall this week.  There are performances running through the weekend, with a 1pm matinee on Sunday afternoon.  This musical focuses on the 1960's band The Four Seasons. Opening in 2005, the Broadway production was quick to win a Tony and a Grammy.

Indigo Girls With The MSO
The Indigo Girls have teamed up with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and created a musical experience that cannot be missed. This is a one night only event, so grab those Indigo Girls tickets now.

Rain - A Tribute To The Beatles
Coming to the Milwaukee Theater on Friday it's Rain - A Tribute To The Beatles.  After sold out shows across the country, Rain makes a brief stop here in town.  The show starts with a video montage of the early days of the Beatles, and ends with live performances by musicians dressed to look just like the real thing.

Creatures And Creators Halloween Party At Turner Hall
88-Nine Radio Milwaukee hosts a great Halloween party at Turner Hall.  Enjoy everything from DJ's to actual live music by the Fatty Acids.  Of course, there will be a costume contest.  The final act of the evening will be a Michael Jackson versus Prince dance party.  We're not sure what that's all about, but it sounds quite interesting.

Admirals Tickets For Home Opener October 11 | Milwaukee Admirals Promotional Schedule 2013

Milwaukee Admirals 2013
The Milwaukee Admirals are ready to kick-off their 35th season in the American Hockey League on Friday, October 11. Following a loss in their final preseason match against the Iowa Wild last week, the Admirals open the 2013 season in Canada at the Abbotsford Heat. Earlier this week, the staff at the BMO Harris Bradley Center were prepping the ice for the team's home-opener on coming up against Chicago. The frozen rink will be the only permanent structure at the downtown venue for the seven-month season, as other surfaces set for basketball and music performances will be laid right on top.

The Admirals preseason finale in Iowa looked like it would end on a high note until the Wild's Taylor Matson scored an equalizing goal with just four minutes remaining in the third period. Milwaukee defenseman Scott Ford put a puck past goalie Darcy Kuemper early in the first to manage the Admirals sole score of the night, failing to capitalize on their only powerplay of the game later in the period.

Iowa came away empty from four of their own power plays during regulation, though a penalty in overtime to the Admirals Miikka Salomaki was the catalyst for a game-ending goal by forward Zack Phillips. The night's slow play was highlighted by a stellar performance from Admirals reserve goalkeeper Marek Mazanec. Taking the place of starter Magnus Hellberg 30-minutes into play, Mazanec stopped 20 of the 22 shots he faced, including seven in overtime.

The Netminder corps of the Admirals 2013 roster is one of their strongest in years. A strong backup in Mazanec, the team holds a 2012 top-five performer in the Swede Hellberg. Drafted by NHL affiliate Nashville in 2011, Hellberg has stopped 916 of nearly 1000 shots against him since then, and is expected get the call to play behind the Predators Pekka Rinne soon.

Returning Admirals Lead The Charge

Others returning from last season's playoff team include top scorer Austin Watson, who managed an Admirals-best 20 goals in his rookie year in 2012. Also a familiar face, the team's leading assist-man forward Taylor Beck will be back in 2013. Beck is part of a trio of Admirals to have gotten late-season promotions to Nashville last year who will be back in the AHL in 2013; the other two are Joonas Rask and Kevin Henderson.

The coveted Calder Cup is the priority for the end of the 2013 season, a feat the team fell short of last year with four losses in the first round of the postseason. Though, maintaining the Admirals diligent fan-base is an equally as important goal say officials at the organization. One of the most attended farm-teams in the league, the Admirals have again partnered with a number of sponsors to host five fan-promotions this season.

2013 Milwaukee Admirals Promotions

-        December 26th – Cowbell Night
-        December 27th – Post-game performance by Milwaukee native Pat McCurdy
-        February 1st – Post-game performance by the UW-Madison Band
-        March 30th – Purina's Bring Your Pet Day

Milwaukee Bucks Begin First Week Of Camp | New Bucks Squad Comes Together

Milwaukee Bucks 2013 Squad
The revamped Milwaukee Bucks and new head coach Larry Drew concluded the first week of camp this week with the Bucks annual Fun Fest on Saturday. The open practice featured scrimmages, drills, fan interaction, and much more for the over 1,000 that filled the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The day was also the first time fans got to see the new MECCA floor-inspired court played on since it was debuted last month.

Drew was pleased with his new team heading into Saturday's event. Following a week of practice including private scrimmages on Thursday and a defensive focus on Friday, the head coach told reporters he was excited about the prospects this season. Point guard Brandon Knight echoed those thoughts, though he admitted that there were still kinks to work out for the relatively unfamiliar 19 faces in camp this year.

Larry Sanders was one of just four players on the court at Fan Fest who wore a Bucks jersey last season. He and Knight teamed up with O.J. Mayo, Ersan Ilyasova, and Caron Butler for two 12-minute scrimmages against Gary Neal, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Olek Czyk, Luke Ridnour, and John Henson to highlight the day. The ten were supported by a bench featuring the likes of Nate Wolters and Marquette's Junior Cadougan.

Dubbed the black team, Sanders and his teammates for the day are expected to be one of the starting-line options for Drew this season. The five lost a scrimmage on Thursday to Neal's and Antetokounmpo's second-line, though redeemed themselves in-front of the home crowd with a 41-29 win. Knight led the game with nine points, followed by Sanders with eight.

First round draft pick Antetokounmpo put-up seven points for the white team in their unsuccessful effort against the starters. Fellow rookie Wolters led the bench with five. The pair took a break from the action to join fans in a free-throw contest during a timeout. Shooting with a teammate from the audience, the rookies kept the competition close, though Antetokounmpo and his partner narrowly won by a margin of 13-to-12.


Bucks Squad Without Udoh and Delfino 

Notable absences from Saturday's Fan Fest included returning power forward Epke Udoh, Carlos Delfino, and Zaza Pachulia. Udoh was the only unconfirmed omission prior to Saturday, as Delfino and Pachulia were both sidelined earlier in the week. Staff for the team could only reveal that Udoh complained of soreness that morning. Former Piston forward Khris Middleton was the bright spot on the injury report Saturday, returning to participate fully despite spraining an ankle on Wednesday.

Milwaukee Brewers 2014 Full Schedule | Ticket King Wisconsin

Brewers 2014 Season Schedule
An exciting home-stand against the Braves will begin the Milwaukee Brewers 45th year in the majors. The team announced their full 2014 schedule earlier this month, revealing a mixture of enticing interleague play, two exhibition games, and the return of a number of forgotten opponents to Miller Park.

The Brewers 2014 schedule starts on Monday, March 31st. Atlanta visits until that Wednesday, before the Brewers head to Boston for their first away-series of the year. The team stays on the east coast for another meeting in Philadelphia, and then returns to Miller Park to open divisional play against Pittsburgh.

Fans will have a chance to see their team prior to the start of the regular season at Miller Park as they take on the Kansas City Royals in a pair of exhibition games on March 28th and 29th.

Following the series at the Red Sox, the Brewers remaining interleague schedule is one of their best in years. The team plays the entire American League East through May, June, and July, including their first games in Toronto and Tampa Bay in nearly a decade. Baltimore makes their first trip to Miller Park since 2008 as part of the interleague schedule, and a rare home-and-away two-game series against Minnesota is the highlight.

There is no love lost between the Brewers and their division rivals St. Louis and Chicago. In 2014, Milwaukee plays 13 unique series against their fellow NL-Central counterparts, in addition to multiple meetings with the Reds and the Pirates. The Brewers host 11 consecutive games at Miller Park in September for their longest home-stand of the season. From the 4th to the 14th, the Cardinals, the Marlins, and the Reds travel to Milwaukee. The 10-day schedule is straddled by a pair of 9-game away-series.

Marking the last road-trips of the year, the Brewers take-on the Padres, San Francisco, and Chicago from August 25th to September 3rd. Then, following the home-stand, the team meets in St. Louis, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati from September 15th to the 24th. The Brewers end the 2014 season at Miller Park against the Cubs on Sunday, September 27th.

Miller Park Seating | A General Guide To The Brewers' Home Turf



Miller Park Seating Chart
The Milwaukee Brewers may not be playing in October, though thousands of fans will continue to make their way into Miller Park seating areas until the end of the regular season. Rated as one of the best venues in the sport, the diamond has consistent good weather with a unique retractable roof and ample seating for over 40,000 fans. From general admission nose-bleeds to group business suites, every patron at Miller Park can find their spot.

Sections 404 to 442 represent the most economical terrace seating. Boxes and individual reserved seats are available to fans in these sections, as is Bernie's Terrace, which provides the best view of the mascot's famous homerun slide. All even-numbered 400-level sections are handicap accessible.

Fans looking to get a little closer to the action can take advantage of the well-priced club-boxes. Located on the 300-level, outfield and infield club-boxes are listed at the same face-value, though infield boxes do offer wait staff. The all-inclusive NYCE Stadium Club and the Gehl Club serve meals and drinks to the club-box sections, and also provide lounge areas for appropriate ticket holders. Miller Park's party suites are also located on the 300-level. The only 300-level handicapped seating is in the 309, 324, and 335 sections.

Five other all-inclusive areas are situated throughout the complex. All but the Toyota Territory provide fans with a private buffet and two free drinks during the game, as well as exclusive entrances and other amenities. The Dew Deck, the ATI Club, the Toyota Territory, and the Miller Lite Party Deck are located beyond right-field among sections 101-104 and 201-205. Space for more than 400 people is available between the four areas.

The Harley-Davidson Deck seats 42 fans on an open-style patio in left-field. The area includes all the amenities present at its fellow all-inclusive sites, as well as parking-passes for any motorcycles in the group.  All of the all-inclusive areas are handicap accessible.

Returning to the general-admission seating, the 200-level offers attendees four loge-seating options. Loge bleachers in sections 201-205 and 233-238, outfield-boxes in sections 206-209 and 228-232, infield-boxes in sections 210-227, and loge diamond boxes which are designated as the first rows in the infield-box sections. The 200-level is the most wheelchair accessible area of Miller Park, with only sections 207, 210, 213, 215-219, 222, 224, 229, 231, and 236-237 as exceptions.

Perhaps willing to break the bank a bit for your Brewers experience? Then the field-level seats are for you. Like the loge-seating, the field-level provides bleacher, infield, outfield, and diamond box areas in the 100 sections. Field bleachers pricing is featured behind right-field in sections 101-104. Outfield-boxes straddle the warning track on the left and right sides of the diamond, taking up sections 106-109 and 126-131. Infield-boxes and diamond boxes again share sections in the 100-level, residing directly behind both the dugouts and home plate in sections 110-125.

Packers Green Versus Gold Package | What Does That Mean?

Do you wonder what the Packers "Green" versus "Gold" package means? Is there some sort of way to find out which games are which? Ticket King has your answer. First, you don't really need to know which games are "Green" or "Gold" we sell Green Bay tickets for every home and away game on the schedule. But there are some things to know about how the tickets are divided.

It helps to understand that at one time (up until ten years ago,) the Packers played two regular season games at County Stadium in Milwaukee Wisconsin. They also played a preseason game in Milwaukee each year. Believe it or not, there wasn't such high demand for Packer tickets during the 1970's. The franchise struggled to fill Lambeau Field. Their solution was to court the fans that lived in Milwaukee. After all, Milwaukee is over five times the size of Green Bay. So the organization split the season tickets.  The "Green Package" covers seven games (one preseason, and six regular season games in total.)  The "Gold Package" covers the three games that used to be played in Milwaukee (one preseason, and two regular season games.)

Milwaukee Fans Drive To Green Bay For Gold Games

When the Packers decided to move those games back up to Lambeau Field, that meant the Milwaukee season ticket holders would have to drive two hours north to see their team play. For 2013, the Gold games are October 6 and November 10.  On those days, expect traffic to be heavy on interstate 43, leading to Green Bay from the Milwaukee area.  All the other home games are "Green" package games.  While traffic can be heavy going into and out of Green Bay on any game day, it tends to disburse outward into all directions on "Green" package days.

Bon Jovi Resch Center Tickets For Green Bay | Ticket King Wisconsin

Bon Jovi Green Bay Resch Center tickets
Bon Jovi comes to the Resch Center in Green Bay on October 22. The name of the tour is "Because We Can." When did Bon Jovi last play in Green Bay? This will be the band's first time in Titletown. Fans are excited to see this legendary group head north of the bigger cities in Wisconsin. After all, there are lots of fans all over Wisconsin. Tickets for the Green Bay Bon Jovi show are on sale September 16.

Because We Can Tour Rolls To Green Bay Wisconsin 

The band's current tour started back in February of this year.  The band crossed the country from east to west, with their last American show date at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. From there, the group played a pair of dates in South Africa. From there it was on to Europe, playing dates in Bulgaria, Germany, Sweden, Finland, and the UK.  One of the biggest shows on the tour was their July 5 stop in London. They played in front of 20,000+ fans in Hyde Park.  From there, it was back to the United States, where the band performed in stadiums, and a few large indoor venues. Rain or shine, the band played on.

In comparison, the Resch Center is a small venue for such a huge group. There will be just under 10,000 seats available for the show, so they are going to move fast. Be advised that some seats might be "obstructed view" seats, so it's best to check with our staff at Ticket King for the best options. Floor seating will be assigned, with five sections and no elevation.  Some of the best seating is just to the right and left of the stage, elevated.

Caron Butler Now A Milwaukee Buck | Bucks Trade Smith and Kravstov To Phoenix

Caron Butler Milwaukee Bucks
Caron Butler is coming home. The Racine native, and 11 year veteran of the NBA was traded to the Bucks last week. In exchange, Milwaukee sent point guard Ish Smith and center Viacheslav Kravstov to the Phoenix Suns, where Butler had played since July. Smith appeared in 16 games with the Bucks after joining the team in February as part of the J.J. Redick swap; Kravstov spent only the month of August in team's summer camp before departing.

Butler's homecoming is bittersweet. A product of a difficult childhood in Racine, he was arrested more than 15 times by his 15th birthday. His high school career in the city was often eclipsed by his street-troubles, as he saw more court-time at the county's juvenile penitentiary than on Racine High School's gym floor. An enrollment in the Maine Central Institute when he was 17 saved Butler, however, as he flourished on the independent school's team during his final two years of high school.

Following his time at the Maine Central Institute, Butler's basketball career was in full-swing. Awarded a scholarship to play under Jim Calhoun at the University of Connecticut in 2000, he finished that year as the Huskies top scorer and rebounder. He took home a gold medal at the 2001 FIBA World Championships for Young Men.

After another standout season his sophomore year at UConn, Butler applied for the draft in 2002. The Miami Heat took him with their first-round pick at 10th overall, though injuries during his second season with the team saw him traded to the Lakers in 2005. Butler wouldn't see any playing-time in Los Angeles before being sent to Washington for remainder of the 2005 season. 

Butler’s Time At Washington Made Him A Standout Player

With the Wizards, the small forward became a mainstay of the team's scoring trio. He, Antawn Johnson, and Gilbert Arenas led Washington to a playoff berth against Cleveland in the 2006 playoffs, though a loss in game 6 dropped them from competition. Despite that, the Wizards renegotiated a four-year contract with Butler worth $46 million. He would remain in Washington until 2010, earning All-Star honors twice during that time.


Denied an extension following the expiration of his contract with the Wizards in 2010, Butler played on a single-year deal until February, when he given to Dallas in exchange for four players. The Mavericks would eventually win an NBA title just a year later; though knee surgery kept Butler from assisting that effort. He was released by Dallas in late 2011, but recovered quickly with a three-year signing with the Clippers.

Badgers Play At Lambeau Field In 2016 | LSU Tigers Will Come To Green Bay

Badgers play at Lambeau Field
It was recently announced that the Wisconsin Badgers will play their first-ever game at Lambeau Field.  At a press-conference on Thursday, a spokesperson for the school told reporters that the Badgers had finalized plans to meet LSU for the pair’s 2016 season-opener in Green Bay on September 3. The deal is the second part of an agreement made back in May.  The agreement is that the teams will meet twice, in non-conference neutral-field games, before 2020. Wisconsin travels to Houston to face LSU in the 2014 season opener to fulfill their part of the agreement.
The Badgers and the Tigers have meet on gridiron just twice in collegiate history. LSU took the win at the pair’s first meeting in Madison in 1971, though Wisconsin won vengeance the following year in Baton Rouge.
To schedule the date, Wisconsin officials were forced to request a push-back of the Badgers previously planned meeting with Virginia Tech on September 10th. The Hokies agreed to the terms, and the pair will now play a home-home series between 2019 and 2020.
2016 marks the first Big Ten season where all conference teams will begin playing a nine-game league schedule. Wisconsin has made one of the heartiest efforts thus-far to pepper-in substantial non-conference match-ups in light of the change in format, starting with the team’s first game of the 2015 season against Alabama in Arlington.

Washington, South Florida, and Brigham Young University have also agreed to meet the Badgers for non-conference games in the seasons following 2014.
