5 Seconds of Summer Sings Amnesia at Phoenix Stadium|| Where We Are Tour

Yo real important!

This month I’m going to the Phoenix comicon fan fest in Westgate (that’s in my neighborhood of Glendale) and the conventions being held in the Phoenix stadium! I’m gonna Cosplay again and bring my bro along to go as the dynamic duo again! While I’m there you guys want me to find certain cosplays to take pictures with? Also for whovian fans, two actors who both played the doctor before are gonna be there. Paul mcgann and Collin baker so I’ll go find them as well. Oh I can’t wait and just 10 more days! X3

Here are a few head-dizzying numbers to get you started. The capacity of the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas is 16,800 — a little less when configured for sporting events. This past February a sizeable 70,288 rabid New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks fans packed into the University of Phoenix Stadium to watch Super Bowl XLIX. Yet when boxing royalty Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao step into the ring on May 2 at the MGM Grand — in a fight billed as the biggest in yada yada…blah…biggest since….blah blah (you know where I’m going with this), they will make more money at the gate alone than this year’s Super Bowl. Think about that for a second.

This week’s fight is huge because of Al Haymon, the mogul poised to put boxing back in the forefront of U.S. sports

New Orleans Saints 2015 schedule: Cold weather, long road stretches won’t be a problem in 2015

When the New Orleans Saints examine their 2015 schedule, they have to like what they see. 

For the first time in two seasons, the Saints will not open with NFC South-rival Atlanta. They’ll kick off the season against the Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., on Sept. 13. Arizona features two former LSU standouts in defensive backs Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu.

The Saints, who finished 7-9 in 2014 and did not make the playoffs, have three prime-time games this season – all at home.

They’ll host the Cowboys on “Sunday Night Football” on Oct. 4, the Falcons on “Thursday Night Football” Oct. 15 and the Lions on “Monday Night Football” on Dec. 21. That number is down from last season’s five prime-time games, the maximum allowed by the NFL.

Not only do the Saints have the fifth-easiest strength of schedule in 2015, but from a logistical standpoint, they are likely pleased with how things shook out. Coach Sean Payton expressed his frustration last year after the Saints had to travel to face the Panthers following a Sunday night home against the Packers. 

They won’t have to do that this year.

For the first time in the “Thursday Night Football” era, the Saints will get to host a midweek game when they play the Falcons at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Oct. 15. The Saints have traveled to eight straight Thursday night games, excluding the 2010 season kickoff game against the Vikings in 2010.

Only four games are played in outdoor stadiums without a roof – at the Panthers in Week 3 (Sept. 27), at the Eagles in Week 5 (Oct. 11), at the Redskins in Week 10 (Nov. 15) and at the Buccaneers in Week 14.

There’s no real weather threat this year, except potentially the Redskins, which hosted the Saints at FedEx Field in Nov. 2009 in a game that kicked off at 35 degrees.

In 2015, also gone are the long road stretches.

The Saints have no back-to-back road trips as games at the Redskins and Titans are sandwiched around a bye in Week 11.

That’s not to say the Saints won’t have some tough stretches. The Saints open at the Cardinals, a team that went 11-5 and made the playoffs in 2014 while losing just one game at home. 

New Orleans will be tested early and often – traveling to the NFC South champ Carolina on Sept. 27, hosting NFC East champ Dallas on Oct. 4 and traveling to the Eagles on Oct. 11. They Saints also will play at AFC South winner Indianapolis and quarterback Andrew Luck on Oct. 25 and host the Lions on Dec. 21 – another playoff team the Saints lost to last year. Former LSU standout and Giants reciever Odell Beckham, who took the league by storm last season, returns to his hometown to face the Saints on Nov. 1 at the Superdome.

The matchups vs. the Cowboys and Eagles will likely be of particular interest. The Saints will face the Cowboys in prime time for the third straight season. Last season was a 38-17 blowout loss, although the Saints also blew the Cowboys out, 49-17, in 2013. 

The Eagles, who lost to the Saints in the 2013 playoffs, feature two former longtime Saints in running back Darren Sproles and safety Malcolm Jenkins, both whom will be facing their former team for the first time. If the Buccaneers, who hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft, take quarterback Jameis Winston as expected, he could be facing his first road trip against the Saints in Week 2.

Also of note, the Saints will be playing the AFC South (Jaguars, Texans, Titans, Colts) for the first time since the 2011 season. They’ll also be traveling to the Redskins for the first time in six years, which resulted in a 33-30 overtime win and is best known for a Drew Brees interception that was stripped away by Robert Meachem and returned for a Saints touchdown.

New Orleans ends the season at Atlanta on Jan. 3.

#throwbackthursday 💛 throwing it back to 2010 when @dom2413 and I went to #WrestleMania 26 👊 still one of the greatest nights of my life!

“Taxpayers paid for most of the University of Phoenix Stadium, which opened in 2006 and is home to [this year’s] Super Bowl – to the tune of about $300 million. Teams even get tax breaks on the money they actually do spend on construction. Most of that spending is financed with tax free municipal bonds, which were originally created by Congress to help fund roads and schools.
A 2012 analysis by Bloomberg showed that U.S. sports teams will save $4 billion over the life of those bonds, with the NFL being the largest beneficiary. The owners of the Arizona Cardinals saved an estimated $125 million on the bonds issued to build the University of Phoenix Stadium.”

2016 Monster Energy Supercross Schedule Announced

Feld Motor Sports® announced today the 2016 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, schedule which will visit two new venues with University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on February 6, and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on April 23, 2016. The 17-city tour will also make its return to Toronto’s Rogers Centre while adding a second visit to downtown San Diego’s Petco Park.

With a rich history in the Phoenix market, Monster Energy Supercross will make its debut at University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, which hosted the Super Bowl in February. Gillette Stadium is home to the NFL’s Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots and sits approximately 20 miles from Boston. Serving as the 15th race of the championship, the Gillette Stadium round complements the race at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the following weekend and is part of a growing East Coast expansion.

On-Sale Schedule

* May 4: Cross Club Pre-Sale (become a Cross Club member at www.SupercrossLive.com)
* May 6: Ticketmaster.com Pre-Sale (10:00 a.m. local time)
* May 8: General On-Sale (10:00 a.m. local time)

“In 2016, we’re continuing the strong start of the Monster Energy Supercross season on the West Coast and expanding our audience by bringing this thrilling event to more East Coast markets,"said Juliette Feld, executive vice president, Feld Entertainment.

The highly anticipated Canadian return of Monster Energy Supercross will take place on March 12, 2016. From 2005 to 2014, the race at the Rogers Centre enjoyed a 52-percent increase in attendance. San Diego’s Petco Park hosted its first-ever Monster Energy Supercross this year, attracting 42,017 fans. As the home to MLB’s San Diego Padres, the venue will host two races in 2016: January 16 and February 13.

"Going to new venues like Gillette Stadium and University of Phoenix Stadium is always exciting for us,” said Ryan Dungey, recently crowned 2015 Monster Energy Supercross Champion. “Bringing the championship to new markets and fans will only help grow the sport, and I look forward to meeting the fans at the races in 2016.”

Keeping with tradition, the season will open at the Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, on January 9, and will conclude at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on May 7. Angel Stadium, which is considered the proverbial home of Monster Energy Supercross, will host a second race on January 23.
