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.

Apparently I missed the memo about the WWE enjoying an 80′s like Renaissance, or people in Austin really really want to check out the Memorial Day show at the Erwin Center. Either way, Vince and Co. have climbed to the top of the countdown ladder and secured the belt. This concludes our dose of subtly savvy professional wrestling references for this week. Their victory leaves the regulars in a bit of disarray, as the esteemed Mr. Bieber climbs to #2, Lady Gaga falls to 3, and Tool remains at 4.

In at #5 is the NCAA Lacrosse championships. Lacrosse-o-philes can still make it up to MT Bank Stadium in Baltimore to catch the finals on May 31st. Games are scheduled throughout the weekend leading up to the championship. The Lacrosse championships beat out championships in a couple other sports with much higher Q scores. That would be the Stanley Cup, in at #7 via the Blackhawks, and the World Cup, appearing at #8.

Country duo Brooks and Dunn make their debut on the countdown at #6. Good thing, since apparently The Last Rodeo Tour is their retirement tour. They’ll be playing US dates throughout the summer.
