10 Super Bowl

Happy New Year. Fitting we start off with the top 3 playing musical chairs, as I have the impression this may go on for quite a while in 2013. At least through summer. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to go back to the 1D pun well for titles, so hopefully Miss Swift and Mister Beiber will prove up to the task of sharing the top spot.

Rounding out the top five are two bowl games that haven’t been played yet, but are very close. The BCS and Cotton Bowl effectively round out the college football season. You still have time to get your seats for the Fighting Irish’s return to the national championship game in Miami.

The bottom five has a couple bowl games that are already in the history books. Lots of searching over last weekend and, interestingly enough, New Years Day, helped the Orange and Sugar Bowls return to the countdown. Apparently lots of people shook off the previous evening’s revelries with some nice, quiet internet surfing.

The NFL playoffs will likely carve out a solid niche in the middle of the countdown in the coming month. This week the Redskins are the team of choice, plus, as usual, the goal of said playoffs, the Super Bowl. It will likely climb up a few notches from #10 as February 3rd nears.

8 4 Miami Heat

10 - Monster Jam

So many corny “Boss” references, so little time… So let’s just say Bruce Springsteen’s tour dates for 2012 have been announced and they are pretty popular. Springsteen has a new album, Wrecking Ball, ready for release, and he will be on the road this spring, most likely at a very large arena near you.

Springsteen handily unseated Drake, who had the top spot two weeks running, but didn’t fall too far. Likewise, the sizable game on Sunday dropped one spot to #3. Rebounding pretty strongly, Van Halen climbs back to the #4 spot, and the Chili Peppers round out a very musical top 5.

Rock has the top five, while pop secures the bottom five. Big Time Rush, a more recently minted Nickelodeon boy band, kicks things off, followed by Beiber fans eager to know when the latest tour dates are announced. Answer: not quite yet.

The NBA takes lands near the end, with the Heat and their finals opponent last year, the Mavericks, in the #8 and #9 spots. Finally, in what can only be described as a twist ending, Monster Jam takes the #10 spot.

8 - Red Hot Chili Peppers
9 - Harlem Globetrotters
10 2 Van Halen

Drake extends his stay at #1 for a second week running. Even the Super Bowl couldn’t topple him, though the results were close. The Big Game did gain one spot over last week, opening up the #3 spot for Tool, who shot up from the #9 spot.

Basketball rounds out the top five, pro and college. The Heat have been on the countdown pretty steadily since the NBA season returned. The Vanderbilt hoops squad is a newcomer, but college basketball’s season of madness isn’t all that far away, so expect more to come.

Radiohead kicks off the bottom five with a big gain from #10 last week. Coldplay follows, having been spotty on the countdown of late. A fate similar to the Chili Peppers, who were strong but lost some momentum when their tour suffered a delay. They’re back this week as the new tour dates get closer.

Van Halen’s surge quickly lost steam, falling to #10 this week after nearly conquering the countdown last week. They’ve got a few weeks to get back to the top before the new tour begins.

3 9 Super Bowl
4 - Jason Aldean
5 4 Miami Heat
6 - Houston Rodeo
7 8 Monster Jam
8 - Justin Bieber
9 7 Tool
10 - Radiohead

Concerts have the upper hand this week, with a 6-4 edge. It’s really 7-3, since the Houston Rodeo makes it to the list on the strength of their concert line-up this year, which features Lady Antebellum, John Legend, ZZ Top, Train, and Alan Jackson, among many others. At the top is Drake, who enjoys a strong jump from the fifth spot last week. He dethrones Van Halen, though they were a close #2.

The Super Bowl surges back to the third spot, followed by country sensation Jason Aldean. Aldean is on tour and will be stopping by the Houston Rodeo as well. The Heat round out the top 5 after a single digit loss.

In the bottom five we find monster trucks and Justin Beiber, who returns after a longer than usual absence. No new tour has been announced, but he is apparently working on a new album (Believe), so a new tour will likely not be far behind.

Rounding things out Tool slip a couple spots to #9 while Radiohead appears at #10. They’ll be in the US for just over a month, so don’t wait to get your tickets.
