Packers NFC North Title in 2021 | Playoffs Now a Lock

The 2021 Green Bay Packers regular season started off with a fizzle. The team took on the New Orleans Saints, with Aaron Rodgers sitting out the entire preseason. That was a game where the script was flipped and Jameis Winston threw five touchdown passes. Green Bay managed just three points against a Saints defense that was unstoppable. Packers fans were stunned. Aaron Rodgers asked us all to once again calm down and wait for better results. Green Bay went on to win the next seven games. He was correct, as the team shot up to lead the NFC North and never looked back. Yesterday, the Packers edged out the Baltimore Ravens and clinched the NFC North title once again. They are on their way in the playoffs, hoping for the first seed in the NFC. That would mean home field advantage throughout the playoffs and a bye week to start. Those same Saints that hobbled the Packers in week number one, managed to hold Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scoreless in a Sunday Night game, currently placing the Packers at the top of the NFC. Will that lead hold? Only the Browns, Vikings and Lions have a chance to topple the Pack before the playoffs begin. At the same time, key starters are looking to get back into the game just as the playoffs begin. It's sure to be an exciting playoff run. Packers tickets for the playoffs are now on sale. 

Rodgers Up For 2021 MVP

Aaron Rodgers is a leading candidate for Most Valuable Player, and if he keeps up his weekly performance he just might get that fourth nod from the powers that be. It's doubtful that his goal is that title. It's all about that Lombardi trophy at this time in his career. Could this be the team that brings that trophy back home to Green Bay? Many signs point to yes. 

First, we have to consider the fact that the Packers offensive line is strung together with string and chewing gum right now. At kickoff last night, there was a third string player protecting Rodgers in the pocket. Billy Turner, David Bakhtiari, Josh Myers, were all out once again. When the last seconds ticked off with the Packers taking the victory formation for the last play, Rodgers had been sacked three times that afternoon. The line is holding up. The defense is a top ten force. The offense does give up points in the first quarter of just about every game, but it seems like it's just a matter of making defensive adjustments. Green Bay outscores their opponents in the second and third quarters by a country mile. 

With the playoffs a lock, it's now down to where the team will land in the NFL bracket. The Buccaneers will surely right the ship after the shutout. The Dallas Cowboys might be the sleeper team that runs the table in the playoffs. The Cardinals were hot out of the gate, but have stumbled a bit in the past few weeks. It's great to see the Packers in the playoffs once again.

Brewers Playoff 2021 Division Series Even | Ticket King Inc.

The Milwaukee Brewers playoff record stands at 1-1 at the time of this post. The team lead their division for the bulk of the season, and they have high hopes for going deep in the playoffs. Will they make it all the way to the World Series? First things first. The team will have to take down the Atlanta Braves before moving on to the NLCS. Brewers playoff tickets for all home and away games are available on our Ticket King website. 

In game one of the NLDS series, both teams struggled to find footing in the early innings. Fans a American Family Field cheered through 6 1/2 scoreless innings before Rowdy Tellez smacked a home run off of Braves starting pitcher Charlie Morton. Morton was mowing down Brewers batters in the leadup to the home run. He fanned nine, and walked just one batter. 

The Braves had a spark of their own in the eighth, when Joc Pederson hit a home run with the bases empty. In the ninth, The Braves had men on the corners with two outs, but Josh Hader settled down just enough to get a game ending ground out to second base. In game two, the Braves scored a pair of runs in the third inning and never looked back. They added another run in the sixth, and shut out the Brewers to even the series. Game three and four will be at Atlanta.

Bucks Win First Two Playoff Games at Fiserv | Brewers Get Hot

Ticket King Bucks Tickets
The Milwaukee Bucks are two games up on the Miami heat in the 2021 NBA playoffs. In this "limited seating" playoff run, the team has made it very exciting for those fans that have tickets to the games at Fiserv Forum

The team made it all but over in the first quarter of game two. The Bucks tied records for most points scored and three point shots in the first, and never let the Heat back into the game. This effort made up for their less than stellar effort in game one. The team heads to Miami for game three.  

 Brewers String Together Three Wins

The Milwaukee Brewers are coming back around to playing solid baseball. With their top-notch pitching staff, all the team needed were hot bats on offense. Prior to this three game win streak, those bats were cold. The team went 6-18 for the month of may, before winning the series against the Reds. Last night, the Padres were mowed down by great pitching, with the Brew Crew cutting the Padres win streak to just nine. The team his home for two more games, then they hit the road to take on the Nationals.

Will We See Full Stadiums and Veneues In 2021? | Ticket King Wisconsin

We All Miss Live Events

It's been too long since most of us have attended a concert or sporting event in person. We're not counting those "limited capacity" NFL games that came at the end of the 2020 season, even though they looked promising. We're talking about those sold out, 75,000 people in the stands, elbow to elbow, "high fiving" strangers, cheering yourself hoarse, games. We miss them. We miss being part of a crowd that erupts after a last second touchdown. We miss that special encore song that your favorite musician surprises you with at the end of a show. We miss it all. Are we back yet? Just about.

One thing holds true. When we are allowed to get back to normal, it's going to be great. It's going to be loud. It's going to be fun! We all want to be there to enjoy the spectacle of it all when things come back. We're social people. It's hardwired into our being, to get together and enjoy it all. 

Ticket King was one of those companies that went from making dreams come true with great tickets to live events, to a company that spent a large part of 2020 refunding loyal customers and hoping we all make it to 2021 safely. Through it all, one thing holds true. When it's safe, we want get together in person again to enjoy the thrill of music, sports, and theater. 

NFL Plans on Full Stadiums in 2021

It sure looks like the NFL will have full stadiums across the land this fall. The numbers are looking better and better each week, and those test runs that the NFL took in 2020 showed that people can attend an event without risking the health of those around them. Lambeau Field on a crisp fall afternoon is the place to be in 2021. 

 MLB Continues to Limit Capacity this Spring

Depending on the city or state, MLB teams are looking at limited capacity attendance for a bit longer. The Brewers hope to fill American Family Field seats with all those Brew Crew fans, but the approach is (so far) to keep safe.    

As the capacity restrictions are lifted, we'll see more tickets become available for sporting events. Live music venues are already booking shows for fall of 2021. These are all good signs, and Ticket King is there for you when you need all the best tickets to live events in the country.
