Insider Tips for a Great Time in Dallas

The Week in TicketCity Search – November 13th

There aren’t any CMAs left.

Merry Friday the 13th. Big split this week, with an all-returning Top 5, and an all-new Bottom 5. Taylor Swift, who I learned from last week’s Saturday Night Live is very tall, remains atop the countdown, again by a handy margin. Following Miss Swift is the 2009 SEC Championship, which has garnered quite a bit of interest over the past couple weeks. That interest exploded last weekend as Alabama basically clenched their appearance. Both Florida and Alabama are considered locks at this point.

Miley remains secure at #3, while Bon Jovi climbs to 4 and the Big 12 Championship, which is a bit murkier even now, falls to 5. That ushers in the bottom 5, where an odd mix of seasonal shows, side projects, college football, and comedy turns up. On the musical side, Not So Silent Night is an alt rock / punk rock ensemble show featuring Muse, AFI, Vampire Weekend, and more. According to Wikipedia, Puscifer is a side project of noted winemaker Maynard James Keenan, who, in his spare time not making wine, fronts a band named Tool.

Rounding out the Top 10 is our first taste of bowl fever, as The Granddaddy of Them All fittingly posts the first appearance of a bowl on the countdown. TCU fans also brought their team some recognition. Finally, Dane Cook is on tour and posts the first showing of a comedian ever on the countdown.

1 1 Taylor Swift
2 10 SEC Championship

4 6 Bon Jovi
5 2 Big 12 Championship
6 - Not So Silent Night

Hurricane Ike Disrupts Texas Sports and Concert Schedules

Hurricane Ike has reached land, sending huge gusts of wind and torrential rain all along the Texas and Louisiana coasts.  Here is a radar picture provided by Weather Underground:

Hurricane Ike strikes the Texas Coast


Hurricane Ike is already taking its toll on the Texas coast.  As Ike advanced closer to Texas Wednesday, many Texas teams are taking necessary precautions to avoid the possible torrential weather Ike is set to unleash on the Gulf.

-The University of Texas Longhorns have postponed their game vs the Arkansas Razorbacks.  A stroke of luck granted both teams the option to reschedule the game to the Sept. 27 bye week.  Austin, Texas is expected to recieve a significant storm on Saturday and through Sunday, if Hurricane Ike maintains is current course toward Corpus Christi, Texas.

“We have been monitoring this situation since Sunday and, at this time, feel confident this is the right thing to do,” Texas Athletic Director DeLoss Dodds said.  “A football game becomes less important when you are dealing with the safety of people.”

-The University of Houston Cougars elected to move their game against the Air Force Falcons from Robertson Stadium to SMU’s Gerald J. Ford Stadium.  Kickoff is still scheduled for 2:30 p.m., and the game will be aired on CBS College Sports Network.  Tickets purchased for the game will remain valid, and students with a valid ID will be admitted free of charge.

-The SMU – Texas Tech game is set to play as scheduled, despite threats of up to 10 inches of rain.

-The Houston Texans home opener vs the Ravens has been rescheduled to Monday night at 7:30 p.m.

-The Houston Astros Friday night’s series opener with the Chicago Cubs game has been postponed due to Hurricane Ike.  Saturday’s game is postponed as well.

-Oklahoma State’s game against Missouri State is moved to a 12:05 p.m. Central Time kickoff.

-Louisiana Monroe and Alabama A&M will play their football match tonight, Sept. 11, 2008 in wake of Hurricane Ike.  The game is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.

-Due to imminent Hurricane Ike, The Eagles concert scheduled for Thursday, September 11 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas will be postponed until October 2, 2008.

-Texas Christian University (TCU) will change the kickoff time for their Saturday home game against Stanford from 6 p.m. to noon.  Stadium gates to Amon G. Carter stadium and Frog Alley will open at 10 a.m.

-Baylor University has moved its home game with Washington State University to tonight at 6:30 p.m.

-The Sam Houston vs Prairie View A&M football game is cancelled
