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.

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.
