Texas Stars Hockey

College baseball fever is in fully swing, as terms from the ongoing post-season send it to the top. Here in Austin the final Super Regional games play out this weekend, and then it’s on to Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium for the College World Series. The combination of searches for all these terms made for a big win for College Baseball.

For a surprisingly strong #2, we have our local AHL franchise, the Texas Stars. Though the Blackhawks can put the Stanley Cup on their mantle for a year or so, the Stars are still engaged with the Hershey Bears for the second oldest trophy in pro hockey, the Calder Cup. The Bears have a long history with the Cup, scoring the most wins, 10, in AHL history.

The usual concert performing suspects appear at 3 and 4, flipped once more. Wicked rounds out the top 5, returning likely due to touring shows starting up in Dallas and Houston over the next couple months.

The bottom 5 is a mix to returning favorites and championships, with the World Cup and NBA Finals clinging to the lower half, while the recent release of US Open tennis tickets has fueled some interest there. And, for some reason, Phish is back.

The Week in TicketCity Search – May 4th

The WWE retains a submission hold on the top spot, though with our local Austin RAW over, it will be interesting to see if they remain competitive next week. Gaga and the esteemed Mr. Bieber swap spots, bringing additional normalcy back to the top 3. Swinging in at #4 is College Baseball, or rather, post season college baseball and the Regional / Super Regional contests leading up to the College World Series in Omaha later this month. The CWS is always popular with us, and looks like this season won’t be any different.

Championships abound this month. World Cup climbs a bit to round out the top 5 and the finals of the NCAA Lacrosse Championships keep that on the board. Skipping down to #10 we see the Lakers appearing, as they secured a 12th meeting with the Boston Celtics in the NBA finals. Another piece of history there with the most famous championship rivalry in all of pro basketball. The Lakers’ record in these meetings could use some polish, so maybe they’ll get on the road to evening things up with the Celtics this year.

The rest of the top 10 includes everyone’s favorite Bachata band, Aventura, and Tool, who tumble a bit from the Top 5 down to #8. Finally, what’s baseball season without the Yankees putting in an appearance on the countdown.
