NFL Pre-Season is Among Us

21st August 2015 | Category: Sports

The NFL season is closely creeping up among us. The Preseason has begun this past weekend and the teams are gearing up for a long strenuous season. Some of the best teams give their young players an opportunity to play and get some game time reps. We also get to see some of the rookie quarterbacks drafted this past April put their talents to test in a big way. Players like Jameis Winston of Florida State and Marcus Mariota of Oregon will take their first steps on to an NFL field this preseason with a world of expectations falling on their shoulders.

The preseason is a 4 week long process that allows teams to evaluate and generate the best roster they possibly can before the season starts. Some players are trying out new positions and even playing on the other side of the ball. Some players will not actually make the team and this gives other teams an opportunity to look at those players an offer them opportunities to play for their organization. This is one of the great vetting processes in the world and it is exciting for the fans as well. The creation of a championship roster starts with the preseason team construction.

Some of the notable preseason games are New Orleans Saints vs. Baltimore Ravens that play the first preseason weekend. Both teams looking to bounce back after last year and push to the championship once again. Also the Carolina Panthers look to find a replacement wide receiver after losing their number one guy Kelvin Benjamin to a season ending ACL Tear. This preseason looks to be vital for the panthers in helping build for the future. The preseason is the start of it all, the excitement the NFL generates is unmatched and we all look forward to seeing the season unfold. Take time to find some great NFL tickets at Ticket Center when you have free time. Catching a preseason game is cheaper than the season games and provides the better seats.

17th August 2015 | Category: Sports

As a wild-card competitor within the last two years, the Cleveland Indians are in danger of plummeting their season before the end of April. They are now currently holding the second-worst record within the majors, ahead of only Milwaukee, as they head into Wednesday’s game they have had four straight loses.

He leads the Cleveland Indians with a remarkable .333 batting average, although he is still on the search for his first home run. Where there batting average as a team is just 234.

A former Yankee, Nick Swisher, who signed with the Cleveland Indians before the 2013 season, could possibly make his first entrance in the game against the Blue Jays. This 34-year-old first baseman as well as an outfielder has been rehabilitating since last summer’s due to his double knee surgery and this season has played games with the Indians’ Triple-A affiliate in Columbus.
