The top 2 sports events traded places in a pretty close finish. There’s a bit of a longer wait between instances of “The Games” vs. the yearly “Big Game”, so I guess a pretty stiff challenge to Super Bowl dominance is to be expected. The reminder of the top 5 is fairly familiar. I’ll never miss the chance to point out the continued presence of the esteemed Mr. Bieber, who bests John Mayer and list favorite Taylor Swift this week.
The bottom 5 is where things get interesting. The only returning entry is the venerable WWE, perhaps riding a wave of popularity due to their popular first PPV of the year, Survivor Series. The remainder of the lower end of the countdown is an ecelectic bunch of newcomers, lead by a new concert entry, the Black Eyed Peas. The Peas’ “The E.N.D. World Tour” is hitting North American shores this month and will remain here until April before heading off to Europe.
While time is running out for Super Bowl tickets for this weekend, there’s ample time to pick up tickets to the “Super Bowl of NASCAR”, the Daytona 500, which clocks in at #7. NASCAR likes to open big, as the biggest race of the year is one of the very first. Following Daytona on the list is the Senior Bowl, which, while I’d like to suggest you go, has already happened this year. Obviously a pretty big last mintue rush for that one.
Finally, it’s rodeo season in Texas, and San Antonio is kicking off this weekend. It runs for almost two and half weeks, with a lot of top tier concerts, so there’s lots of time to pick up tickets and see the shows.
