July 29, 2014 at 11:35 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:

In case you missed it earlier this year the Seattle Seahawks brought home their very first Super Bowl title after defeating the Denver Broncos in a big way. Now that’s all in the past, and the team is looking toward another winning season. Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, and Marshawn Lynch—well maybe, he’s holding out for a new contract—are all now warming up for the season, and you can check them out.

How to Join in on the NFL Fun for 'Kickoff 2013'

August 26, 2013 at 10:26 AM | by | Comments (0)

We can’t exactly put into writing the sounds of the major television networks and their theme music for NFL football, but now that we’ve mentioned it we’re hopeful that it’s providing a little background music. Now that you’re in the mood for football, let us remind you that kickoff to the NFL season is a little more than a week away. As you plan your travel schedule and itineraries around Sundays and your fantasy draft, let’s also discuss how to celebrate this year’s season opener.

The season is set to make its debut on Thursday, September 5, as the Baltimore Ravens visit the Denver Broncos out in Colorado. Despite the game’s location out west there’s still plenty of fun to be had in Baltimore. As part of the general kickoff festivities, Keith Urban will be performing live back in Maryland. The plan is for him to do his thing aboard a floating stage in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor right next to the Maryland Science Center.

Training Camp Travel: Track the Indianapolis Colts' Playoff Hopes

August 6, 2013 at 11:29 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:

One of the surprise performances—and feel good stories—of last season has to be the Indianapolis Colts. After a terrible season during 2011 and the loss of the future hall of fame quarterback, there was quite a rebound and recovery during 2012.

Training Camp Travel: San Francisco 49ers Try Again for the Big Game

August 1, 2013 at 10:15 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 defending NFC champions are looking to make it all the way back to the Super Bowl this year, but there’s still plenty of games to play before February. At the same time, we certainly need some time to stock up on game day snacks.

There’s a lot of pieces that remain in place from last year’s team, but of course there will be some new faces as well. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be leading the team from the very first game, and apparently there will be plenty of lookalikes in the stands as well. That’s because his jersey has been one of the top sellers during this year’s offseason.

· When's Camp:
Practices have already been going on for a little bit of time, as the players have been trying to work out the offseason kinks. Usually there’s plenty of practice sessions open to the public, but this year’s a little different as construction of the new stadium is getting in the way. One practice will be open to the public—over at Candlestick Park—but if you’re looking for a more game time experience there’s always the preseason. The Denver Broncos come into town on August 8 to start the preseason schedule.

Training Camp Travel: The Baltimore Ravens Go for Two in a Row

July 30, 2013 at 10:11 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 seems like just yesterday that we were overindulging in chicken wings and processed cheese while watching the Super Bowl, and when our snacks finally ran out it was the Baltimore Ravens who came out on top as the season’s champions.

The team is a lot different this year, as some players have headed elsewhere while others have headed off to the golf course—we’re looking at you Ray Lewis. Quarterback Joe Flacco is back for another season, and he’s making the big bucks—like really big—to lead his team in 2013. We’re not so sure they’ll be back in this year’s big game, but we’ll just have to wait and see how the season shakes out.

Football Travel Season Gets Going, Starting with New York City

August 28, 2012 at 3:29 PM | by | Comments (0)

We’re just about a week away from the start of the professional football season and, with or without the referees (they’re using replacement officials for now), the NFL is ready for this year’s first week of kickoffs. Of course the television networks are eager for you to tune in as well, but for true football fans there’s nothing like celebrating the season by being there in person.

For those who call the greater New York area home this won’t be too difficult to accomplish, as this year’s opening game is set to have the Dallas Cowboys face off against the New York Giants over at MetLife Stadium over in beautiful East Rutherford, New Jersey. The party is set to start about an hour before the game begins as the NFL attempts to throw their own tailgating party—minus the beverages in red cups. They’ve shelled out the cash to ensure everyone has a good time, and that includes bringing in Mariah Carey and No Doubt for a couple of live performances.

Training Camp Travel: Terrible Towels and the Pittsburgh Steelers

July 26, 2012 at 11:24 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:

As best we remember the Steelers had a pretty good season in 2011, but after finishing with 12 wins during the regular season they were bounced from the playoffs by Tim Tebow and the Broncos. The Pittsburgh Steelers seem to be a threat to win it all each and every year, so we’re kind of expecting much of the same come 2012.

Hines Ward is gone, but Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu are back and looking to help the team earn Super Bowl win number seven. There’s plenty of teams with an alternate plan for this season’s Steelers, so we’ll just have to wait and see how the season shakes out.

Training Camp Travel: Tony Romo and the Cowboys Plan a Road Trip

July 24, 2012 at 10:28 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 hasn’t been too much offseason news surrounding this year’s Dallas Cowboys, but that doesn’t mean that training camp is going to be any less interesting. Each and every year seems to be the year for the team, so obviously expectations will be high—once again—for the 2012 season.

Tony Romo, Miles Austin, and DeMarcus Ware will all try their best to take the team to the next level. However, that starts with them making the playoffs—something they couldn’t get done last season.

Training Camp Travel: The Miami Dolphins Look for Fame with HBO's Hard Knocks

July 19, 2012 at 10:28 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 a new coach, a couple new quarterbacks, and a brand new playbook heading into training camp for this year’s Miami Dolphins. During the offseason the team was initially in the running for the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, but apparently Peyton just wasn’t interested in bringing his talents to South Beach.

Instead the Dolphins now have rookie Ryan Tannehilland his wife—who may or may not start in 2012. In the interim, the team will look to Matt Moore or David Garrard to lead them to the playoffs for the first time in a long time.

Training Camp Travel: Catch Your First Glimpse of Peyton Manning as a Bronco

July 17, 2012 at 1:06 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:

If you weren’t paying attention during the offseason, there was a pretty big move by one future hall of fame quarterback. Due to a nagging injury Peyton Manning kind of didn’t play during the 2011 season and, as a result, he packed his bags and moved away from Indianapolis. It was certainly the story of the offseason, but after all was said and done he decided to join the Denver Broncos.

We’re thinking that the Broncos will do fine without fan favorite Tim Tebow, and it’s likely that with Manning at the helm they’ll be back in the playoffs once again this season.

Training Camp Travel: Who Dat Say Dey Gonna Beat Dem Saints

July 13, 2012 at 12:01 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 New Orleans Saints have had a pretty rough offseason thanks to the bounty scandal and the resulting suspensions and related punishments. Even without their usual head coach we’re still thinking that the team has a decent shot in 2012, as long as they finally wrap up contract negotiations with quarterback Drew Brees.

Games against the Packers and Giants might prove to be a little difficult, but if they can overcome some of the offseason turmoil they should be headed far into the playoffs.

Training Camp Travel: Follow Eli Manning and The G-Men to Albany

July 11, 2012 at 10:46 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 New York Giants are of course still a threat to win it all, after winning the big game earlier in 2012. Eli Manning and his crew have a long road ahead of them if they think that they can easily make it two in a row, but of course they’re probably up for the challenge.

There’s always a couple tricky games against the usual foes like the Eagles and the Cowboys, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Giants start strong and play well into 2013.

The details:
