NFL Rivalry Travel: Plan Now for Patriots and Broncos

September 11, 2014 at 10:10 AM | by | Comments (0)

Even with week one of the NFL season just in the rearview mirror it’s time to start looking toward the future, as it’s time to plan ahead if you want to check out one of the season’s biggest rivalries. Two of the best teams with two of the best quarterbacks meet this November, as the Denver Broncos visit the New England Patriots on November 2.

We’ll assume that both teams will be having strong seasons heading into week nine, so the outcome could certainly have potential to affect how things go heading into the postseason. Not to mention the competition and rivalry between Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.

Training Camp Travel: Watch the Arizona Cardinals Get Set in the Desert

August 14, 2014 at 9:14 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

The Arizona Cardinals were right on the doorstep of the NFL playoffs last year, but they failed to make the postseason for the fourth season in a row. That’s okay in our minds, because it’s a brand new year with brand new possibilities. The team has been hard at work for the last few weeks, and everyone from Larry Fitzgerald to Carson Palmer is ready for 2014.

Training Camp Travel: Buffalo Bills Get Down to Business in Upstate New York

August 12, 2014 at 7:05 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

It’s year two for Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel, and he and the team are looking to improve on the past few losing seasons and give a little more for the fans to cheer about. Outside of the playing field there’s all kinds of news and rumors regarding the sale of the team, and one interested party even includes singer—and rock star—Jon Bon Jovi. So there’s that storyline as well. However, first and foremost is training camp and that’s well underway.

Alaska Airlines Anoints New 'Chief Football Officer'

August 8, 2014 at 10:25 AM | by | Comments (0)

We’re still a month away from the true kickoff of the NFL football season, but Alaska Airlines is already banking for your fall travel dollars with a football-theme promotion. Along with their Chief Football Officer—and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson—they’ve got a new commercial promoting their general airline awesomeness.

The ad depicts Alaska Airlines employees going through some traditional football training camp activities, but of course with a little bit more of an airline edge—think flight attendants tossing bags of peanuts to cardboard passengers aboard golf carts.

It’s pretty darn funny and definitely worth thirty seconds of your time on a Friday, so be sure to check it out.

Training Camp Travel: Smile for HBO's Cameras with the Atlanta Falcons

August 7, 2014 at 12:18 PM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

The Atlanta Falcons—and their fans—are eager for the season to get underway, and that’s especially the case since last year did not go as well as planned. Quaterback Matt Ryan is back, and we can only assume better than ever. Wide rescivers Julio Jones and Roddy White recently commented that they think they can each catch for 1,500 receiving yards—something never done in a season before.

Oh—and besides all the football action—there’s also a little bit of a Hollywood presecene during the preseason and training camp. Cameras and crews from HBO will be taking it all in, as the team is featured on this season’s Hard Knowcks.

Training Camp Travel: Tracking the Tennessee Titans in Nashville

August 5, 2014 at 11:25 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

Every team has a chance of winning it all when the season starts up, and that includes the Tennessee Titans. Unfortunately for fans of the team they’re probably a little bit of a long shot, as some odds makers are putting them in at 100:1 when it comes to winning the Super Bowl early next year. Nonetheless the games must be played, and the fans will show up. All the fun begins with training camp that is now underway.

· When's Camp:
Check out quarterback Jake Locker—playing under the final year of his contract—as the team hits the practice field under the direction of new coach Ken Whisenhunt. The team can be found at Thomas Sports Park in Nashville, so no need to head too far out of town to check things out. Several practices are done and finished, but there are still public options available on August 6, 11, and 12—tomorrow’s practice begins at 9:20am and the others take place in the afternoon at 2:50.

Training Camp Travel: Follow the Cleveland Browns Onto the Field

July 31, 2014 at 11:55 AM | by | Comments (0)

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

There’s been a lot of moving and shaking in the offseason over in Cleveland, and we’re not talking about LeBron—we’re talking about the Browns. The team got rid of their old coach and brought in Mike Pettine to run things, so there’s some optimism about the team for 2014. Then of course there was the NFL Draft, and the fact that the team is now the home of rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel. We’re not sure if he’ll start the season, but at least training camp will give you an opportunity to check things out.

· When's Camp:
Training camp is already underway, so now’s the time to get your fellow fans together and plan your visit. Registration in advance is required, and some days are already sold out; however, there are still a few options available from which to choose. Camp runs through Friday, August 15, and then after that the preseason games begin. Everything takes places over at the team’s training facility in nearby Berea, Ohio—so not too far to go to take things in.

Are you ready for some football?! There’s still a few months before the first official kickoff, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for a sneak peek. Training camps are set to do their thing later this month, so if you’ve always wanted to check out the scrimmages and practices now’s the time to start planning:

We totally understand if you’re feeling a little bit of football depression this week, as it’s going to be quite a few months until your NFL teams hit the gridiron once again.

Where and When to Join the Seattle Seahawks' Super Bowl Victory Parade

February 3, 2014 at 7:32 AM | by | Comments (0)

Depending on whom you were pulling for last night, it was either one of the best Super Bowl games of all time—or one of the absolute worst. Either way it’s now time to celebrate, and the city of Seattle is ready to welcome home their Seahawks. It’s the very first championship for the organization, and only the second time a professional sports team will bring home a trophy to the city. Start working on your get out of work strategy, as this Wednesday is going to be the victory parade.

For those hoping to welcome the team home—you’re out of luck—as it sounds like there will not be an organized welcome home out at SeaTac Airport. However, the official celebration is scheduled for February 5, as things are going to kickoff at 11am local time.

The plan has the parade beginning on Fourth Avenue—south of like Denny Way—then running along Fourth Avenue for a couple of miles. The parade route will lead the team to their home at CenturyLink Field where the party and parade will end around 1:30pm.
