Kenny Chesney Miller Park 2018 Show | Ticket King Inc.

Longtime great country music signer Kenny Chesney is coming to Miller Park on April 28, 2018. This tour stop is part of the “Trip Around The Sun” in 2018, which is scheduled to begin April 21 in Tampa, Florida. The Miller Park show will then be the second stop on his tour. Following the Miller Park concert, Chesney will head for Minneapolis on May 5, before heading south for shows in Texas. On May 17th he will be in Woodlands at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Two days later he will be at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. The tour will finish with back-to-back performances at Gillette Stadium on Boston on the 24th and 25th of August. Opening for Chesney on this tour will be the likes of Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion, and Brandon Lay.

Since his career began back in 1994, Chesney has recorded 20 albums, 14 of which have been certified Gold. His most recent Album, Cosmic Halleluiah, released in March of 2016, topped out at number one on the country charts and sold 235,000 copies. The interesting aspect of Chesney’s career is that unlike many musicians in his position who burst onto the scene, his career started out like many struggling artists. His first two albums failed to make it onto any notable lists, and it wasn’t until his fifth album that he cracked the top five on the country music charts. As the decade turned to the 2000’s, his career went from average to incredible. His last nine albums have topped out at number one on the country charts.

Badgers Head To Orange Bowl | Ticket King Inc.

Ticket King Bowl Tickets
On “Conference Championship Saturday,” the Wisconsin Badgers dream season came to a halt. They entered the Big Ten title game unbeaten, taking on Ohio State, a team that already had two losses on the year. After an injury scare the week before, Buckeye quarterback and NFL draft prospect J.T. Barrett was deemed fit to play, and he certainly did. He wasn’t great, but he did just enough. The Buckeyes got a big night from running back J.K. Dobbins, to the tune of 17 carries for 174 yards with a long of 77. The same question that always haunts the Badgers is the same question that took them out of the college football playoff in this game- They pad their record against inferior opponents, and every time (or almost every time,) they play a good team, they wind up losing. That was the case again this time. The Badgers then missed out on the college football playoff, and will play in the Orange Bowl on December 30 against Miami. The question that faces the Badgers is the same question that they always face when they step outside of conference to play a team in Florida, the SEC, or a California-based PAC-12 team. Do they have enough speed as a team to keep up with their opponent?  

Final Score: 34-27 Miami.

Let’s take a look at the other Big Ten bowl games.

Pinstripe Bowl - Iowa vs. Boston College
Another year, and another solid season for the Hawkeyes, who finished 7-5. Boston College, after an abysmal 2016 campaign, came back from the dead this season, finishing 7-5. It should be a low scoring, but solid game.

Final Score: 20-16 Iowa.

Holiday Bowl, - Michigan State vs. Washington State
Man, these Holiday Bowl matchups are always so much fun, and this edition will be no different. In this one we have the powerhouse Washington State offense vs the mighty Spartan defense. Who budges first? 

Final Score: 27-24 Michigan State

Music City Bowl - Northwestern vs. Kentucky
Of all of the Big Ten bowl games, this one should be one of the least interesting. This is one of Pat Fitzgerald’s best Northwestern teams ever, and it features a quarterback draft prospect named Clayton Thorson who has come flying out of nowhere to a potential first round projection.

Final Score: 34-17 Northwestern

Cotton Bowl, USC vs. Ohio State
This game is going to be a classic. The top overall prospect on the board, USC quarterback Sam Darnold goes up against Ohio State. J.T. Barrett isn’t too shabby in his own right, and this game will give him an opportunity build his own draft stock.

Final Score: 31-28 USC

Fiesta Bowl  - Washington vs. Penn State
This is going to be another classic. Washington quarterback Jake Browning, another in this loaded quarterback draft class, gets one more chance to improve his draft stock against Penn State, who features the best running back in the country, Saquon Barkley, who is currently projected to go second in the draft behind USC’s Sam Darnold.

Final Score: 30-24 Washington

Outback Bowl, Michigan vs. South Carolina
Simply put, these two teams are going to beat each other into an oblivion in this game, and points will be at a premium.

Final Score: 16-13 Michigan

Things To Do In Wisconsin This Weekend | Ticket King Inc.

Wisconsin Events
It’s December here in Wisconsin, and for sports fans, that means Badgers football is coming down the stretch, Badgers basketball is in full swing, the young and talented Milwaukee Bucks are off to a solid start. And of course, there are the Milwaukee Admirals, considered to be one of the better minor league sports teams in the country, known for its fan experience and atmosphere. Let’s have a little “water cooler” talk on all of them.

The Wisconsin Badgers football team is having another fine season. To this point they are 12-0, unbeaten, and headed for a showdown with the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Big 10 Championship game this weekend. If the Badgers win, they will be in the college football playoffs. If not, they still have an outside chance, but a very slim one. It all comes down to what the committee thinks. The Badgers, as usual, are led by a strong running game. Running back Jonathan Taylor is third in the country with 1,806 rushing yards at the moment. They also have yet another great defense, which has only let Northwestern (with quarterback Clayton Thorson who is considered as a possible top-two round draft choice next May,) score over 20 points on them this season. They will need both Taylor and that stout defense to come out on top Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Badgers basketball team, which has been one of the best in the country the last few years, is not expected to have as good of a season as their last few. They currently sit at 3-4, and have lost to those four games to ranked teams. Their three wins came against South Carolina State, Yale, and Milwaukee. Still, they have plenty of time to prove the doubters wrong.

The Milwaukee Bucks are off to a 10-9 start this season. There have been some ups, some downs, and currently holding the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, although it’s very early. They need to find a way to squeeze out a few more points per game. They currently stand with the fourth lowest scoring offense in the Eastern Conference, at 102.9 points per game. This number puts them as the worst of the current playoff contenders. They can’t ask anything more of the likes of Giannis or Khris Middleton. Maybe someone off that bench, such as Thon Maker or John Henson, can give them a few more points per game.

If you are looking for an outing with some family or friends, but you are on a budget, the Milwaukee Admirals might be just the ticket for you. The team is off to a good start this season. They currently sit at 11-8, good for second place in the AHL’s Central Division. The Admirals haven’t scored a ton of goals, but they haven’t given up a ton either. They are currently tied for the AHL’s seventh-best defense, with just 53 goals allowed. Their roster currently features some promising young talent, such as 20-year-old Russian Yakov Trenin, 20-year-old winger Anthony Richard, and 21-year-old defensemen Jack Dougherty.
