Super Bowl XLIII Matchup – Arizona vs Pittsburgh

Posted by Ace Staff on January 19th, 2009

The Conference Championships are over, and the matchup for the 2009 Superbowl is set. The Arizona Cardinals capitalized on Philadelphia’s mistakes to win the NFC Championship 32-25. Behind the stellar defensive play of Troy Polamalu, the Steelers contained Ravens’ rookie QB Joe Flacco. The Steelers’ 23-14 win puts them in the Super Bowl for the second time in 4 years. This is the first Super Bowl appearance, and second Championship game (the Chicago Cards won the 1947 meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles). The 2009 Super Bowl will be held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on February 1st, 2009. Super Bowl Tickets are available now!

Thomas Saves 40, Bruins Top Islanders

Posted by Ace Staff on January 16th, 2009

After beating their rival Canadiens in a tough game on Tuesday, a somewhat fatigued Boston Bruins team headed to New York – their first road game in nearly two weeks. The Islanders out-skated, out-shot, and generally outplayed the Bruins; but Tim Thomas’ dominant goaltending gave the Bruins the win. Thomas stopped an incredible 40 of 41 shots (Islanders netminder Yann Danis stopped 25 of 27) and continued to show why he was selected to the NHL All-Star game. On Saturday the Bruins will face the Capitals in Washington at 7:00pm. Boston Bruins Tickets are available now!

Celtics Back in Form With Win Over Nets

Posted by Ace Staff on January 15th, 2009

Last night’s 118-86 rout of the New Jersey Nets was just what the Boston Celtics needed.  The win was the third in a row for the Celtics who recently had a 2-7 slump to deal with.  The last three games have seen the Celtics really return to form.  Now at the halfway point of the season the Celtics’ record is 32-9 just two games off of last year’s pace. Paul Pierce did most of the scoring last night for Boston with 22 points total. Pierce went 5-5 on 3 pointers in the 3rd quarter putting the Celtics well out in front of the Nets.  Kevin Garnett added 20 points and 9 rebounds.  Glen Davis added 12 points off the bench. Last night’s loss was the sixth straight for the Nets against the Celtics. They’ll get another shot on Saturday night when Boston visits the Nets in New Jersey.  The Celtics will be back at the Garden on 1/19 to host the Suns.  Celtics tickets are available for this and all remaining 2009 games.

Jim Rice Inducted Into Hall of Fame

Posted by Ace Staff on January 13th, 2009

In his 15th and final year of eligibility, Red Sox left fielder Jim Rice was finally inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. His induction gives the Red Sox a streak of Hall of Fame left fielders from 1939-1986, encompassing the entire careers of Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, and Rice. One of the most feared hitters of his time, Rice won the AL MVP in 1978 and ranked in the top five in voting on five occasions. As noted on his Wikipedia page: “from 1975 to 1986, Rice led the AL in total games played, at bats, runs scored, hits, homers, RBIs, slugging average, total bases, extra base hits, go-ahead RBIs, multi-hit games, and outfield assists.”Rice is the only player to ever lead the major leagues in RBI’s, triples, home runs in one season, and his career 4,129 total bases is still the team best.

Celtics Top Raptors on 39 Points by Pierce

Posted by Ace Staff on January 13th, 2009

Paul Pierce was determined to get the Celtics past the Raptors last night. The team leader dropped 39 points on Toronto scoring 9 of them in OT to seal the 115-109 victory by the Boston Celtics.  Pierce played 49 minutes in Monday night’s game despite the fact that he had a bad knee due to a collision in Sunday’s game.  Kevin Garnett added 20 points and 12 rebounds for Boston.  The win was Boston’s 2nd in a row after losing 7 of 9 and put the Celtics at 31-9 on the year. After playing 2 in a row against the Raptors, the Celtics will do the same with the New Jersey Nets. The Nets will play the Celtics at the TD Banknorth Garden on Wednesday 1/14 and the Celtics will travel to New Jersey for Saturday’s game with the Nets.  Celtics tickets are available for these and all Celtics games both at home and on the road.

Jim Rice Has Last Chance to Join the Hall

Posted by Ace Staff on January 12th, 2009

On Monday,  January 12th, 2009, the results of Jim Rice’s last chance to join the Baseball Hall of Fame will be announced. On the ballot for the 15th time, this is the last chance Rice will have. Last year Rice had 73% of the vote, just 16 votes short of enshrinement.  “I just don’t think about it,” Rice told the AP. “The ballots are in. There’s nothing you can do about it. So you can’t change anything, so why worry about it.” Left fielder Rickey Henderson will be on his first ballot, a nearly unanimous shoo-in for the hall. Andre Dawson and Bert Blyleven, both short in their previous years on the list, will try to hit the required 75% again. Boston Red Sox tickets are available now!

Celtics Look to Bounce Back vs Cavs

Posted by Ace Staff on January 9th, 2009

The Boston Celtics have been on a 2-6 skid since having their winning streak derailed by the Los Angeles Lakers. Amid speculation of acquiring Knick Stephon Marbury and the rapidly approaching trade deadline, the C’s need to either right the ship or figure out what they need. The Cavaliers, looking for revenge for being knocked out of the playoffs last year and an opening night loss this year, have usurped the C’s as top team in the NBA in most power rankings. Tip-off is at 8:00pm at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. 2009 Boston Celtics tickets are available now!

Sox to Sign Smoltz, Baldelli, Kotsay

Posted by Ace Staff on January 9th, 2009

The Boston Red Sox have continued to make low-risk, high reward signings this offseason. Career-long Atlanta Brave pitcher John Smoltz will sign a $5 million guaranteed contract with up to $5 million in performance-based incentives.  Rocco Baldelli will have a $500k base salary with $1.75 million in roster bonuses and $5.25 million in performance bonuses. Kotsay’s deal is for $1.5 plus performance incentives. These signings plus Brad Penny’s $5 million contract give the Sox some cheap depth, and a chance to get numbers like their 2007 seasons for a fraction of the cost.
