Feb 09, 2016 No Comments by

By George Haggis Super Bowl XLI – February 4, 2006 – The ticket seen here is a fake ticket, a phony, a counterfeit! Every fans’ worst nightmare when buying in the secondary market.

Closing the Miami Arena

Jan 31, 2016 No Comments by

by Brule Laker We didn’t realize until reading in the newspaper that our first Miami Heat game would be their last at the Miami Arena. Our company’s insurance agent, a Miami native, provided excellent tickets for the December 28, 1999, game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Chicago Cardinals Old School NFL

Jan 22, 2016 No Comments

The Chicago Cardinals Old School NFL by Brule Laker The Chicago Cardinals always lagged in popularity behind the Bears.

I can read a defense like Peyton Manning (for 1 play at least)

Jan 10, 2016 No Comments

As far as I’m concerned, this was the beginning of the end of the Patriots dynasty.
