Taylor Swift is back – and she’s gone pop

Taylor Swift Tickets - 1989 Tour
It’s a sign of something when your space-filling eight second track of nothing but dead air is a chart-topping hit as well as the rest of your new album (“Track 3,” the eight seconds of white noise, went to the top of the Canadian music charts along with the rest of the album, due to an iTunes glitch). But when you’re Taylor Swift, and your fans are waiting for new music…well, anything goes.

Breaking Down The Ticket Market In San Francisco


On Sunday the San Francisco 49ers will host the St. Louis Rams at Levi’s Stadium. While this could prove to be an important matchup in the NFC West as the 49ers sit at just 4-3, it will be the least expensive game of the season on the secondary market at Levi’s Stadium. According to Razorgator, the average price of 49ers tickets for the game is just $178.62. It’s the only game of the five remaining games in Santa Clara to have an average price below $200.

The 49ers have won their past three meetings against the Rams, with St. Louis taking the game before that and the two teams playing to a tie in their fifth most recent meeting. The teams met just two weeks ago for a Monday Night Football game in St. Louis, which only had an average price of $83.66. After a quick start from the Rams, the 49ers came back to win 31-17.

Sunday’s price between San Francisco and St. Louis is almost $100 below the average price of the NLCS between the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants earlier in the month. The average price of Giants tickets across the series was $271.31. If the football game plays out like the baseball series, the 49ers should have a fairly easy time handling the Rams. Meanwhile the with the NBA season beginning this week Golden State Warriors are seeing prices average $125.11 for the season as a whole for Warriors tickets.

The most expensive remaining home game for the 49ers will come on Thanksgiving night against the Seattle Seahawks. Even as both teams are not the dominant forces they were last season, a prime time game for the biggest Thursday night game of the year brings a huge premium on the secondary market. The average price for the game is currently $469.20 with a get-in price of $153.

Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

The youth of the Golden State Warriors is poised to again lead the team back into the playoffs this season. Equipped with the Splash Brothers in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and adding a new piece to the team in head coach Steve Kerr, the Warriors have seen ticket prices rise considerably on the secondary market since last season. The Oracle Arena in the Bay Area will be play home to a sea of yellow and blue all season long as the Warriors look to pick up where they left off after winning 51 games last season.

The team will play its most expensive game against the Cavaliers on January 9, where secondary average is currently listed at $293.78 and get-in price starts at $97. The Lakers will serve as the second top-priced opponent at home on the Warriors schedule this season. They head north to Oracle Arena on March 16 and will bring with them an average price of $196.18 and get-in of $43. The Warriors’ third most expensive home game will be against the Bulls on January 27. Warriors vs Bulls tickets for the late-January game is currently $185.72 and owns a get-in of $40 on the secondary market.

On the other side of the financial spectrum, the Warriors will host their three cheapest games against teams with losing records last season.

Blackhawks Tickets For Rematch Of Western Conference Playoffs Going For Under $150

Blackhawks Penguins

The Chicago Blackhawks have been among the top teams in the NHL for a few seasons and that has continued into 2014-15. With the prolonged success of the team, Blackhawks tickets have been able to draw high secondary market prices at home and on the road. That will be apparent with the next group of games Chicago will play this weekend. The Blackhawks will play a back-to-back with one game on the road and one game at the United Center.

On Saturday the 25th, the Blues host the Chicago Blackhawks at the Scottrade Center. The Blackhawks knocked the Blues out of the first round of the playoffs last spring in a tightly contested six-game series. Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith each had seven points in the six game series, while Kevin Shattenkirk led the Blues with 5 points and Vladimir Tarasenko had four goals in the series. According to Razorgator, Blues vs Blackhawks tickets for the rematch average $136.26 on the secondary market, with $60 getting you in the door.

Sunday night sees the Eastern Conference Senators make their first and only visit to Chicago this season. Despite trading away their captain in Jason Spezza in the off-season and having little expectations going into the season, the Senators have also started their season successfully. Led by one of the more exciting players in the league, Captain Erik Karlsson, the Senators are looking to prove they belong where they are. Blackhawks vs Senators tickets have an average price of $145.17 on the secondary market, 47% lower than the Hawks’ season average price.

Patriots Tickets Up 24% Against Reeling Bears


It was only a few weeks ago that the New England Patriots were in trouble after getting off to a disappointing 2-2 start. Three games later, the would-be declining Tom Brady looks as good as ever and his Pats are looking quite strong at 5-2. Time can cure all, it seems, but the same may not be able to be said for the Chicago Bears, who visit Foxboro with a 3-4 record in Week 8. In fact, there is rumored to be a rift between Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall, one that could even stretch as far as dividing the team. While that’s for the media to spin, it’s a storyline that will still be analyzed as these two teams prepare to square off on Sunday.

The Bears come into the game needing a win to not fall out of the NFC North race behind the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers. The Patriots, however, will not be an easy opponent and the fans in New England are apparently excited for the game. According to Razorgator, the average price for Patriots Tickets is currently $359, more than 24% above the season average at Gillette Stadium this year.

On top of above average ticket prices, New England will look to extend its winning streak against Jay Cutler. Cutler is 0-2 in his career against New England. These two teams haven’t played since 2010 when New England won its last meeting at Soldier Field, 36-7. Expect Chicago to play with a lot of emotion after last week’s tough home loss.

Bruins Tickets Up Over 30% From A Year Ago


The Boston Bruins entered their seventh straight postseason after posting a 54-19-9 record last year. They would ultimately fall to the Montreal Canadiens in seven Eastern Conference Semifinal games, which has allowed ticket prices for the team’s two home games against the Canadiens this season to be the most expensive on the secondary market. The Rangers, Flyers and Kings will also serve as the Bruins’ top-priced opponents at TD Garden this season, all who established playoff berths in 2014. According to Razorgator, the season average for Bruins tickets at home is $213.80 on the secondary market, 30.8% above last season’s average of $163.41.

The most expensive home game on the Bruins schedule this season will be played on November 22 against the Canadiens. The average secondary price for Bruins vs Canadiens tickets to the late-November game is currently $354.94 and get-in price starts at $151. The Habs will again visit Boston onFebruary 8 and bring with them the second highest-priced tickets the Bruins will see at home this season. The average price for February 8 Boston Bruins tickets to see them take on the Canadiens is $301.36 on the secondary market. Get-in price for that game is currently $114.

The defending Eastern Conference Champion Rangers come to town on March 28, marking the third most expensive game in Boston during the regular season. Bruins v Rangers tickets for the late-March meeting average at $291.97 on the secondary market and own a get-in price of $105. The Flyers will make a stop at TD Garden earlier that month, carrying a $282.42 average ticket price and $99 get-in for their game in Boston on March 7. Rounding off the Bruins five most expensive games are the Kings, who will visit on January 31. The average secondary price for Bruins vs Kings tickets is $279.68 with a get-in price of $102.

It comes as no surprise that the success of the Bruins in recent years has accelerated ticket prices on the secondary market. As they try to stretch their postseason streak to eight consecutive seasons, they’ll be met with high secondary prices at TD Garden all season long.

Seahawks Tickets Averaging Nearly $350 When Cowboys Come To Town

seahwaks cowboys

This Sunday the Seattle Seahawks will host the Dallas Cowboys at CenturyLink Field in a matchup between two of the top rushing teams in the league.  The Cowboys are second in the league in rushing behind Seattle as the Seahawks will look to slow down DeMarco Murray who comes into this game with 670 yards rushing and five touchdowns, making him just the third running back in history along with Jim Brown and O.J. Simpson to rush for at least 100 yards in his first five games. The Cowboys are seeking their fifth straight win, a feat they haven’t accomplished since 2007.

According to Razorgator, Seattle Seahawks vs Dallas Cowboys tickets for this game have a current average price of $348.92 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $149, just below the average price for Seahawks tickets this season and way down from its average of $505 back in June.

Both of these teams are in competitive divisions with the Seahawks currently tied for first in the NFC West with Arizona, as the Cowboys are tied with Philadelphia for first in the NFC East.

While the Cowboys running game has been lights out, Seattle leads the league in rushing at 167.3 rush yards per game behind a bruising running style from Marshawn Lynch who has rushed for 306 yards this season and quarterback Russell Wilson who became just the second QB to have two career games of over 200 yards passing and over 100 yards rushing.

It’ll will be interesting to see if DeMarco Murray will have any success against Seattle who have been limiting opponents to just 62.3 yards per game as the Legion of Boom has not yet displayed their defensive form from last season.

Another matchup that is getting a lot of attention is between cornerback Richard Sherman and wide receiver Dez Bryant as Sherman, who led the league interceptions last season, has no picks so far this year.

Hey, did you hear about the Grammy-winning classical violinist who played for 45 minutes in an entranceway to the Washington, D.C. subway…and almost no one noticed?

It’s not very often that we here at Razorgator write about classical music or musicians; but when it involves one of the great instrumentalists of our time, and a sequel of sorts to a Pulitzer Prize-winning story, we tend to sit up and take notice.

After a Hard-Fought Game, Both the Falcons and Saints Head to Ohio For Week 2


In the first game of the season, the Falcons edged the Saints 37-34 in overtime at the Georgia Dome to claim first place in the NFC South. The victory marked just the fourth time the Falcons have beaten the Saints in the past 17 meetings.

The Falcons hope to forget a dismal 4-12 record in which Atlanta finished last in the division. For the Falcons to compete this season, star receiver Julio Jones will need to remain healthy after he missed the final 11 games of 2013. The 25-year-old put together a superstar performance on Sunday afternoon, hauling in 7 receptions for an astounding 116 yards. Quarterback Matt Ryan was dominant, completing 31 passes for a franchise-record 448 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Saints seek to improve upon an 11-5 record that saw New Orleans fall to the Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs last season. The Seahawks, of course, went on to win the Super Bowl. The success of the Saints this season will hinge upon the ability of Drew Brees and the New Orleans offense to put up points. In the 2009 season in which the Saints won the Super Bowl, Brees led an offense that put up a league-best 32 points per game. On Sunday afternoon, New Orleans lost despite scoring 34 points, which indicates that the Saints defense must improve if the team has any chance of returning to Super Bowl contention.

As the high-powered offenses of the Falcons and the Saints look to take off this season, the NFC South appears to be a force to be reckoned with. Atlanta travels to Cincinnati to face Andy Dalton and the Bengals, who beat the Ravens in a Week 1 thriller as Falcons tickets start from just $30 for this game. On the other hand the Saints fly to Cleveland to battle Brian Hoyer and the Browns, who fell to the Steelers in the first game with Saint tickets averaging less than $135 according to RazorGator.
