Attn: Sports Fans – Phoenix is the place to be right now

Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix is crowded right now. Full of new arrivals who are landing in Arizona for the huge sports weekend ahead. The luggage carousel is a “Who’s Who” of famous faces from the sports and entertainment worlds. So what’s bringing all of these heavy hitters out to the desert in January? Take your pick.

Sunday is the Super Bowl. The 2008 Super Bowl is being played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. Glendale is just minutes from downtown Phoenix. The game features the New England Patriots and New York Giants. But if you watched any TV, read the newspaper or been online in the last week, I’m sure you’ve heard all about Super Bowl Sunday. Another event you might not have been hearing about yet…

Today the FBR Open (formerly known as the Phoenix Open) begins play at the TPC Stadium Course in Scottsdale. The field at the 2008 FBR Open has some big name golfers like Phil Mickelson. And the tournament, which plays through Sunday, is expected to draw it’s largest crowd ever. The atmosphere at the FBR Open is unlike any other golf tournament on the PGA Tour. The crowds often take on a “frat party” persona, with the biggest partying going on around the 16th hole. They’ve built skyboxes around the hole to fit in all of the people. This Par 3 was made famous when Tiger Woods aced it in 1997.
