Hail To The Mormons

Book of Mormon hailed by critics

Get your Book of Mormon discount tickets because this musical has been hailed by numerous critics and for this very reason it has pushed tourists to come see it. It came from the creators of South Park and Avenue Q. Women’s Lifestyle magazine, Vogue, even called it the best musical of all time while The New York Times called it the best musical of the entire century which means it is going to be a couple of lifetimes before anybody comes close to topping the Book of Mormon. These rave reviews has catapulted and cemented its name among the greatest of musicals of all time.

With energetic performances by cast members who excel at what they do, you can’t blame them for saying that. The dance choreographer is Casey Nicholaw who happens to also be one of the directors of the stage play. The wonderful designs of the costume can be owed to Ann Roth as she is the costume designer. One must say here that she has done a stupendous job in styling the actors. The wonderful sound being heard throughout the entire play can be owed to Brian Ronan as he is the sound designer for Book of Mormon. He has really accentuated the experience of the play by his distinct sound designing.

The host of the Daily Show, Jon Stewart, even said that the Book of Mormon was so good that it made him angry. The Book of Mormon follows two main characters, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham. They are missionaries who have embarked on a journey to Uganda in order to convert people there into the Mormon religion. They find out the task is easier said than done as they encounter a series of events that were not what they were looking for. They also perform song and dance numbers of some of today’s biggest hits combined with Broadway songs as well. The musical has jokes that some people may not be able to relate to as it has jokes relating to poverty, sexuality and race. The parents should be aware that the play contains some profanity so they may end up covering their children’s ears on several occasions.

Nevertheless, The Book of Mormon, provides an experience of a lifetime with its powerful and gripping story-line, brilliant stage performances by the lead actors, beautiful visuals and the canvas created and lastly the music, which takes it to another level altogether.

Red Sox Season Predicitions

Boston Red Sox predictions for the 2014 season

Discount Red Sox tickets have started to skyrocket this season with a promising number of wins unlike what some people expected. Sports analysts believe that they have the potential to register yet another successful World Series Run in 2014. They just have to avoid the destructive WS Series hangover which tends to pull down league teams every year. Sox had a somewhat unpredictable offseason, with some of their major players such as Jacob Ellsbury departing to other teams which proved to be quite a blow for their side. Nevertheless, 2nd year player Jackie Jr. Bradley is expected to take over his position as center field. Despite having a big shoe to fill, manager John Farrell has shown great optimism in the player stating that with enough training he would give a stellar performance. He has tremendous faith in Jackie Jr. Bradley.

Another player to watch out for is Grady Sizemore, though he hasn’t played in any major league contest since 2011, he’s a point 269 hitter who managed to put up an impressive 90-RBI, 38-steal and 33-home run way back in the 2008 season. Sizemore is only 31yrs old but already shows the potential of becoming one of those successful spring season training stories. Boston’s main pitcher, Felix Doubront, has predicted that the team would win at least 15 of their starting games, however they may perform even better than this as they have shown in the past. In 2013, some sports predictors projected the team to win only 79 games in their entire season but they shocked everybody by finishing with a 97-65 score line, totally negating that prediction. This brings the league into a more interesting zone with every team having a chance to win it.

For Sox to remain on top of the US League East, they will need to enlist yet another frontline pitcher apart from the four main ones. Doubront is one of the likely candidates to fill this spot, having finished 3rd on yet another frontline pitcher outside the four with 11 wins and 16 quality starts last season. This period is even brighter for Boston with Bradley Jr. and Bogaerts expected to make the starting lineup, a sure injection of tact and speed to the team. They have decided to take every competing team head-on and ensure that they give their best shot right from the word go.

Dodgers Stadium History

The LA Dodgers Stadium

If you’ve ever heard of the phrase “moving mountains,” you might think it’s merely a figure of speech. But that’s exactly what construction workers had to do back in 1959 during the construction of the Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium. Hundreds were involved in the project and by the end of it they had moved a whopping 6 million cubic meters of soil and boulders in the construction site and from the surrounding areas. It was a mind-boggling undertaking to say the least. Get your cheap dodgers tickets today and watch history in the making.

The stadium took about three years to construct and ready-for-use (1959 to 1962) and cost over 20 million dollars. Do remember that this was more than 5 decades ago so if you were to factor in inflation, that figure would be worth around 150 million dollars today or even more. All the funding came from private investors. This was one of the most massive investments ever made into building a world-class football stadium.

Only two other ballparks have been around longer than the Dodger stadium namely Chicago’s Wrigley Field and Boston’s Fenway Park, both of which were commissioned in the early 1910s. Before Dodger Stadium was constructed, the team was based in Brooklyn. When O’Malley bought it in 1950, his initial plan was to construct a stadium in the same location. Due to political interference, however, this was not to be. As a result he had to find an alternate location and at the time, LA, which was doing quite well economically, seemed like the most sensible option. In addition to that, city officials were actively trying to convince ball teams to set up their base in LA. To say the least, the environment was perfect. It was a win-win situation, both, for the ball teams and the city officials.Truly, building this gigantic stadium, has been one of the marquee events in the history of football.

The city even went ahead to give the Dodgers 350 acres of land so that they could embark on construction immediately. The opening date was set for some time in 1961 but had to be pushed to 1962 because of legal battles and landslides. The very first game to be played in the stadium was on April 10th 1962 (The Reds Vs the Dodgers) in front of a full capacity crowd – well over 50,000. It is worth noting that at one time, the LA Angels also called the Dodger Stadium home, this was before they moved to Anaheim.

Dallas Cowboys Suck

The Dallas Cowboys Season Prediction

The Texas NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys, are hoping that the upcoming draft will bring in solid players that will make their season successful. They have appointed Rod Marinelli as new defensive coordinator with Monte Kiffin as his assistant during this season. Having finished the last three seasons at 8-8,  Dallas Cowboys tickets will be significantly more expensive because they will bring in notable names to bolster their defense and, of course, their offense, especially after losing major players in the final-regular season game against Philadelphia. Under Coach Jason Garrett, who has a record of 29-27, the top talent that the draft class comes with, makes the year promising for the Cowboys. Garrett definitely has a huge task ahead of him, and first he has to win major games against top opponents both at home and away.

This year the Dallas cowboys will face a strong opponent, the San Francisco 49ers in their first game. Then, the team will play at home to the newly resurgent New Orleans Saints under their former Cowboys coach Sean Payton. They will then face the tricky Jacksonville Jaguars in a game that they are expected to game to unless they let it slip away. With their talent, the Jaguars should not be a major obstacle.

Coming from their Week 11 bye week, the Cowboys will play four divisional opponents over the last 6 games, and in between, the team will play against the Bears and the Colts, both of which are non-NFC East teams. In week 12, the Dallas Cowboys will face the, Giants and having fallen to them in week 7, Coach Garrett will certainly be looking for a win here. The two teams are closely matched and whoever wins in both legs will walk away with two important divisional wins.

The season appears open to everyone. To become winners, one team that the Cowboys have to be wary of is the Chicago Bears. In the past four seasons the Bears and the Cowboys have faced each other three times with the Bears winning all the three games and thrashing the Cowboys in the past two meetings. To emerge winners in this away assignment, they will need to break the Bears’ defense bolstered by new studs such as Lamarr Houston and Willie young. If the Dallas Cowboys can win such tough games, then, it is almost evident that the Coach Jason Garrett and his company will be champions this season.

Winning!

2014 PREDICTIONS: THE NEW YORK YANKEES

An injury plagued New York Yankees only managed a mediocre performance last season, which is not where the team should be. The 2014 season however promises to have its own unique set of challenges and difficulties, most of which revolve around the presence and absence of key players. Get your cheap Yankees tickets quickly while you can!

The offseason was full of changes that may help add some depth to the team in order to raise their chances of succeeding this season. However, that success is going to be a hard-won one and is very dependent on how the newer players turn out. New stars will rise and will be the key torch bearers of their teams.

The most reliable team members are out, which means that the manager will have to come up with a new strategy. These include Alex Rodriguez, who was suspended for the whole year, Robinson Cano who became a free agent and left, and the much-needed Ivan Nova, whose pitching was of star quality.

The absence or injury of the key players has left the void that will have to be filled by team players such as Masahiro Tanaka, the future star pitcher of the team. David Robertson may end up dominating on the mound, and so would Michael Pineda. Jeter will leave on a high provided he lives up to his promise.

Nothing is as dangerous on a pitch as a baseball player about to retire. The legendary Jeter is about to retire and 2014 will be his last season. It will be a matter of honor for the New York Yankees to see that this great sportsman retires with dignity. As long as he does not have any injuries, Jeter will be at the forefront of leading his baseball team. His determination knows no bounds, which is why he will do everything in his power to motivate his team to a great victory.

Conclusion
It is still early days. However, the offseason changes made to the team mainly because of injuries, should be able to hold it together for the duration of the season. The team is also in a good position to acquire some good players. As long as the manager makes the right choices with regard to which team players should be given priority in, it is likely that the newer ones will surprise everyone. The New York Yankees will definitely improve their overall standings this year.
