The 7 Bands to Checkout Before Lollapalooza 2015

There’s no doubt that there are some music gods head lining at Lollapalooza 2015. Paul McCartney, Sam Smith, Kid Cudi, Florence and The Machine are just a few of the big dogs you’ll get a chance to see this year. However, if you keep scrolling down to the lineup page, you might be shocked by some of the lesser-known gems. We’ve highlighted a couple the Razorgator team thinks should be on your radar this year.

 The Lonely Biscuits 

It’s not a secret. The team at Razorgator has a big fat crush on the dudes from The Lonely Biscuits. Actual crush? Musical crush? Bromance crush? That all depends on who you’re talking to. All we know is that is was fate that put Grady Wenrich and Sam Gidley in the same dorm room at Belmont University. We’ve probably watched the video for Ma’am about 1,000 times….today. Grey sweatpants are mandatory for our next casual Friday. Read more ›

Friday’s Round At U.S. Open Most Expensive Of The Tournament

US Open Golf

Next weekend, the second major of the PGA Tour’s golf schedule tees off at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington. A course that prides itself on driver accuracy usually results in the winner ending around a few strokes within even par, but in last year’s mastery of the Pinehurst Resort course by Martin Kaymer, he was able to remarkably finish at -9.

Tickets to the U.S. Open on the secondary market vary on which day fans plan on attending. The best deal will be purchasing a weekend badge, which has an average price of $168.32 and a get-in price of $6, according to RazorGator.com. The single-day passes are listed below:

6/18/2015 | U.S. Open Golf: Thursday | Average Price: $514.27 | Get-in Price: $140

6/19/2015 | U.S. Open Golf: Friday | Average Price: $539.05 | Get-in Price: $229

6/20/2015 | U.S. Open Golf: Saturday | Average Price: $403.63 | Get-in Price: $188

6/21/2015 | U.S. Open Golf: Sunday | Average Price: $478.28 | Get-in Price: $197

Friday’s round is the most expensive for now (as of 6/11), featuring an average ticket price of $539.05. On the contrary, Saturday has the least expensive round with an average price just over $400. The U.S. Open Championship ends on Father’s Day, which sports an average of $478.28 and a get-in price of $197 for those making last minute plans.

Those are some high prices but there is high drama. Jordan Spieth is looking to capture the first two Major tournaments of the season after his brilliant Masters performance secured a win by Saturday.

Rory McIlroy returns stateside for the U.S. Open Championship after playing a couple of tournaments overseas that he did not fare particularly well in. Although the majority of the field is completed, there is still qualifying to be done for some of the final spots in the tournament. For now, a few of the definite players in the field include Kaymer, Justin Rose, Webb Simpson, McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Spieth, Bubba Watson, Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Jason Dufner, Rickie Fowler, Keegan Bradley, Jimmy Walker, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and many more. The qualifying ends after this week’s tournament, the St. Jude’s Classic, which concludes on June 15.

This year is the first time the tournament has been located in the Pacific Northwest in its history.

Disappointing Marlins Still Seeing Steady Ticket Transactions

Miami Marlins

The 2015 MLB season hasn’t gone quite as planned for the Miami Marlins, who are one game away from the cellar in the NL East and have already moved on to another manager. That’s not what you want to hear for a team supposedly stacked with offensive firepower and a stable of solid pitchers entering the campaign.

The problem? That offensive firepower, although loaded with talent, has been inconsistent and that quality stable of pitchers hasn’t nearly met expectations. Giancarlo Stanton can hit the long ball (15 homers and 44 RBI), but needs some help within the lineup. Dee Gordon has done nicely in his first year in Miami, hitting for a high average, but offers zero power potential. On the pitching side of things, Dan Haren (five wins with 43 K’s) has been the team’s most productive hurler after almost retiring this past offseason, but the likes of Tom Koehler and Mat Latos have been severely underwhelming.

As bad as it looks right now for Miami, the talent is there for a turnaround. The Marlins need more consistency from their hitting and their pitching to step up, but June offers plenty of opportunity for the team to regain their footing. Let’s analyze their cheapest and most expensive games to see how they might fare this month:

Cheapest – 6/6/2015 @ Colorado Rockies | Avg: $35 | Get-in: $5

Stanton is one of the few players in baseball who commands a lot of attention with each trip to the plate, and he’ll surely draw some extra attention for each at-bat with a trip to hitter-friendly Coors Field. The Rockies give up a ton of runs and any opponent has a shot at going off in their ballpark, which could be the perfect setting for a Miami explosion. Needless to say, there is tremendous value in Marlins tickets for this June 6 game, which could give Miami fans a good offensive show, and may serve as a springboard toward a potential run. With better starting pitcher than the Rockies, the Marlins could secure a series victory in the Rocky Mountains.

Most Expensive – 6/16/2015 VS. New York Yankees | Avg: $218.60 | Get-in: $48

Marlins tickets spike up considerably ten days later when they host the ever popular Yankees. Tickets to a Yankees game are never cheap, no matter the venue, but this matchup beefs up even their pricing (usually just over $183 on average) and Miami fans get to take in one of the most storied franchises in all of professional sports. New York isn’t an easy opponent, either, as they bring heavy bats (235 runs scored) and a first-place standing in the ultra-competitive AL East. The Yanks will want to take care of business in this rare Interleague meeting, but are just .500 on the road at 15-15.
