Why You Should Take Advantage of the 2015 Pro Bowl in Arizona

  
  
  

QuintEvents NFL On Location Pro Bowl Baltimore Ravens Player Celebrating Touchdown resized 600 resized 600Have you heard the news? The stage is set for the 2015 Pro Bowl in Arizona! This is big news! The NFL all-star game has been hosted by Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii since 2011. Additionally, it has already been confirmed the game will return to the islands in 2016. Also big news!

Now, I know you're wondering why this should matter to you. Why on earth is this a big deal? What difference does it make whether the
2015 Pro Bowl is hosted in Arizona or Hawaii? 

Well, folks, having the Pro Bowl on the mainland is a big deal! And it's a big deal you should be taking advantage of! 

Take a look at these three reasons why you should be chomping at the bit to attend the 2015 Pro Bowl in Arizona!

Learn more about why this will be the best Pro Bowl yet>>

1. Travel is Easier

The average number of miles from the east coast of the US to Hawaii is 5,000 miles. The average number of miles from the west coast of the US to Hawaii is about 2,500 miles. Comparatively, from the west coast to Arizona is only about 500 miles. And from the east coast to Arizona is about 2,000 miles. 

Attending the Pro Bowl in Arizona is so much easier! It's closer which means shorter drives, shorter flights, and in turn, less money being spent on airfare or gas!

And let's face it - the Pro Bowl isn't going to change much from location to location. The NFL is going to host an amazing all-star event regardless of where it's held! The weather in Arizona is going to be beautiful, the NFL tailgate party will be one a fan will never forget and the game is going to be epic!

So why not spend less time traveling and more time enjoying the 2015 Pro Bowl?

2. It's Easier on Your Wallet

Another fact to consider is the cost of living. A vacation in Hawaii is not exactly the easiest on your wallet. With most hotels offering beach front rooms with their already high class status, lodging can be costly. And mentioned prior, the price of getting there is just flat out more expensive.

A beautiful, high-class hotel in Arizona is much easier on your wallet, and yet, you're still living in luxury! And the cost of traveling to Arizona simply won't make your credit card tired.

And since NFL On Location and QuintEvents offer Official Ticket Packages to the 2015 Pro Bowl in Arizona with transportation, accommodations and VIP extras included, you can save even more money while still having the dream Pro Bowl experience!

3. The Ultimate NFL Experience is Knocking

NFLOL Pro Bowl Tailgate Party Hawaii Group resized 600 resized 600One of the biggest announcements the NFL made this year was that the 2015 Pro Bowl and Super Bowl XLIX are both being held in Arizona! The Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl, folks! The two biggest NFL games possible in the same location! Can you say the ultimate NFL experience?

You can head to Arizona to watch the 2015 Pro Bowl LIVE and stick around to see the city set-up for the Super Bowl. We're talking NFL players everywhere, celebrities rolling in, fans filling the streets, and Super Bowl Boulevard kicking-off. Who wouldn't want to the opportunity to see an event like this take place?

And since NFL On Location and QuintEvents also provide Official Ticket Packages to Super Bowl XLIX, you could even pair both games together and stay in Arizona for the week for the most epic NFL vacation a fan could dream of!

NBA All-Star Gets Involved in New York City

  
  
  

For the first year ever, NBA legends and executives participated in a relay in conjunction with the New York City Marathon as a part of an effort to get involved in the communities of New York City leading up to the NBA All-Star Weekend in February.

This year, the NBA made a concentrated effort to connect with the half million kids that live within the five boroughs of New York City, which will host the NBA All-Star Weekend, starting Friday, Feb. 13. 

NBA executives and former NBA players teamed up on Nov. 2 to run a 26-mile relay, parallel to the NYC marathon. The plan was to connect with the different boroughs’ youth and promote fitness for the city as a whole.

The NBA has always tried to connect in some way with the host city of its various All-Star weekend events.

This year, however, there has been additional planning and real positive energy in doing so. This may be due, in part, to the enthusiasm of one fresh-faced commissioner, Adam Silver. Silver led the pack of the two dozen executives and former NBA pros at the relay race.

The NBA commissioner, a bit of a fitness nut himself, has run the New York City Marathon twice before.

NBA-events-logoThe NBA Takes On NYC Relay 

On Sunday Nov. 2, the team of 24 each ran a three mile leg of the relay, passing the baton, as they ran through the different neighborhoods.

The relay was a part of the NBA’s attempt to hold clinics, workshops and activities acting as an outreach to the kids of the Big Apple leading up the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend.

At the relay, young runners joined the NBA-affiliated team racing through the streets of NYC, spanning all five hubs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.
The plans for the NBA's partnership with the New York City Marathon began last spring.

The race was held in promotion of New York’s Road Runners program, which promotes youth fitness. The NBA donated $26 thousand to Team for Kids which supports the charity. The Road Runners reaches more than 200,000 students each year.

Several of the former NBA players who participated in the event were New York City natives themselves. Sixty-six year old Nate Achibald from the Bronx and Chris Mullins from Brooklyn, joined the effort.

The New York Knicks’ Charles Oakley and WNBA player Swin Cash were also among the players who participated. 

Even the Knicks' and Nets' broadcaster, Mike Breen, and Knicks’ assistant general manager Allan Houston, were a part of the relay team.

An NBA Nation

Dwight-with-fan-NBA-eventsThe energy that the relay race brought was a great kick-off for the relationship between the NBA and New York City leading up to the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend. As one of the nation’s definite basketball cities, the participation in the events leading up to the weekend and prior to the game itself are projected to be high.

The event mirrored what many may have forgotten the NBA All-Star Game Weekend was founded in.

Although it is an opportunity to pin the Eastern Conference against the Western Conference, as well as for players to showcase their high level of talent, it is an opportunity to bring a community of basketball lovers together in a celebration of the sport. It is a chance to promote the positive influence the sport can have on communities.


In a way, the relay race was a way for the NBA to pass the baton to the five boroughs in an effort to unite under their love of basketball.

And unite they did!

Unite with the NBA at the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend


Rising-stars-challenge-NBA-eventsThe NBA All-Star Weekend will begin Feb. 13, in New York City. The weekend will feature a full Saturday of contests and activities including the famous Slam Dunk Contest at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The event will then move to Madison Square Garden on Sunday for the NBA All-Star Game.

NBA-Events offers Official Ticket Packages providing you and your guests with preferred block seating, VIP hospitality, gourmet food, a premium open bar, and a party venue!

With Official Ticket Packages, you can have the chance to attend meet-and-greets with former NBA players, participate in photo-ops, receive post-game on-court access, and attend all the Saturday festivities at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center!

The NFL Continues to Build in London

  
  
  

NFL On Location NFL International Series London 3 resized 600The 2014 NFL International Series is complete! This season, the NFL held a record of three regular season games at historic Wembley Stadium in London, England, which included the first-ever morning broadcast here in the US! The NFL's expansion in Europe continues with the popularity of the international games only continuing to increase.

And after a successful 2014 NFL International Series, the league is not appearing to slow down - the NFL will return to London in 2015!

Take a look back at the 2014 NFL International Series experience to get a glimpse into what the experience could be like for you and your group next year!

The NFL's Record Year in London

This fall, NFL On Location and QuintEvents brought fans to London to watch their favorite teams compete with an unparalleled experience! With hotel accommodations and provided for transportation to and from all official NFL events included in packages, fans didn't have to worry about any aspects of planning their trip.

NFL On Location NFL International Series Game resized 600The party began on Friday night with the NFL Friday Night Kickoff Cruise! Guests were invited to sail on along the Thames through the city of London with NFL players and cheerleaders. Heavy hors d'eouvres were provided, along with a selection of open beer, wine and soft drink options.

Saturday was left open allowing fans to explore London, one of the most historical and culturally diverse cities in the world!

Come Sunday, it was game time! Fans were taken to Wembley Stadium three hours pregame so they could take full advantage of the NFL's hospitality tailgate party. Guests were invited to sample the complimentary gourmet fare, wet their whistle with a cold brew or a glass of wine, and there were a variety of interactive entertainment elements to keep the party going.

Then, when it was time for the game to start, fans took their seats enjoying their coveted views of the field and Wembley Stadium. Depending on the level of ticket package, some fans had access to the hospitality area again at halftime and for one hour postgame.

Needless to say, Official Ticket Packages took the NFL International Series to the next level and fans had the time of their lives!

Katy Perry to Perform at Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show

  
  
  

Super Bowl XLIX NFL On Location QuintEventsThe rumors and speculations are true! The NFL officially announced on Sunday that the global phenomenon, Katy Perry, will be performing during the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show! Perry is world-renown for her vibrant, creative and over-the-top performances, and the Super Bowl Halftime Show is being geared up to be just as wild!

Perry hit the charts in 2008, with top hits such as "I Kissed a Girl," "Hot N Cold," "Waking Up in Vegas," and "Thinking of You." She then cemented herself as a top global artist with her album in 2010, with hits such as "Firework," "E.T.," "Last Friday Night," "California Gurls," and "Teenage Dream." This year, she has continued on with even more chart-topping hits such as "Roar" and Dark Horse."

Her 2010 album, Teenage Dream, made her the only female artist to have five No. 1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart! 

Perry's Halftime performance will be the most-watched musical event of the year. Last year, more than 115 million U.S. viewers watched the Pepsi Halftime Show, and the Super Bowl and Halftime Show will be broadcast worldwide in 2015. 

NBC will be airing short exerts showing fans what Perry has in store for the Halftime Show leading up to the big game in Feb., and there is no denying her performance will be a global spectacle. 

Past Super Bowl Halftime Show performers have been Madonna, Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Prince, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, The Who, Paul McCartney, and U2. Perry will now join this elite group of musicians.

3 Reasons to Book Your Masters Ticket Packages Early

  
  
  

The Masters Course Augusta National Golf Course Picture QuintEvents Fans Lining Golf Course Water Ponds1 resized 600 resized 600The fall months are flying by, winter is coming in fast, the holidays will pass shortly after, and before you can even realize what's happening, it will be springtime and you'll realize you fell way behind on making your dreams of attending the 2015 Masters come true. Now, I know you don't want to be there again. Sitting at home when April rolls around, chiding yourself for not booking your access early.

While it might seem like a no-brainer to some to secure your tickets to the Masters early, you like the facts. You like the reasons. You want the full picture. 

Well, golf fanatics, that's exactly what you're going to get. Without further ado, let me provide you with three reasons why booking your 2015 Masters ticket packages early makes all the difference in your experience!

1. More Selection

Everyone knows the best options are going to sell-out first. With that being said, if you're going to check the Masters off your bucket list, you want the best access available, right? Of course!

By booking early, you can select between Practice Rounds or Tournament Rounds, even a combination of both! And since you're booking early, no scalping tickets for you! You can score yours through QuintEvents, the Official Source for dream experiential packages. All of us at QuintEvents have a deep experience managing this special event and we can bundle your dream experience together! 

I'm talking VIP hospitality access with complimentary gourmet fare, premium open bars, cocktail hours, private tee times, "hard to get" reservations, and much more! There are two great packages to select from, but like I said, access this exclusive isn't available forever.

Learn more about Hole in One Packages>>

Learn more about Eagle Packages>>

2. More Days of Access

The 2015 Masters is a week long event with the Practice Rounds consuming the first few days, followed by the Tournament Rounds. It's not uncommon for fans to opt to attend a Practice Round day and then a Tournament Round day, all Tournament Round days, or even all week!

The Masters Course Augusta National Golf Course Picture QuintEvents Fans Lining Golf Course2 resized 600 resized 600However, the longer you want to call Augusta National home, the earlier you need to book. If the course reaches capacity on a certain day and you're seeking access for the whole week, you lost your chance.

Alternatively, if you book early, you can opt to attend as many days as your heart's desire! Not to mention, attending all seven days of the tournament is your best value. And since QuintEvents' offers easy payment terms if you book further in advance, you don't have to foot the whole bill up front. You can space your payments across multiple months, making attending the Masters easier on your wallet.

Learn about Easy Payment Terms>>

The Masters Course Augusta National Golf Course Picture QuintEvents Sandtrap1 resized 600 resized 6003. More Inclusions

Another great feature about QuintEvents'
Masters packages is all the exclusive inclusions you can tack on! Touched on slightly prior, QuintEvents can get you and your group VIP access to golf tee times at exclusive area courses, private chef meal preparations in residences, celebrity appearances, "hard to get" dinner reservations at places you're likely to spot Masters golfers (and I'm not talking Waffle House, Bubba), invites to evening parties, and much more!

Not to mention, you can opt to include transportation to and from the course each day and luxurious hotel accommodations in your package. BUT, the longer you wait, the harder it is to opt to include items such as these.

Hotels do book up, transportation does fill-up, and reservations and parties do hit capacity. So if you're wanting to have the time of your life at the Masters will all these VIP experiences, you need to secure your access early!

Book Your Masters Tickets Now!

What are you waiting for? It's time to take action and book your 2015 Masters ticket package early! Call 1-866-834-8663 to speak to a representative or visit QuintEvents' website for more information on how you can make your dreams of seeing the Green Jacket come true!

The Breeders' Cup Experience Through the Eyes of an Owner

  
  
  

The calendar and the artic air tell me that our phenomenal year of racing is nearing its end, but some leaves remain on the trees and the sweetness of Breeders’ Cup 2014 also continues to linger. The experience of owning a contender in the Breeders’ Cup Classic was an exclamation point, not only for a whirlwind year, but also for a lifetime of participating in the thoroughbred industry. 

My Breeders' Cup Experience

Our story to the race un-folded much like a fairy-tale and was magical in every way except for the ending.  While Majestic Harbor had never finished worse than fourth on the Santa Anita race track and he had run some of the fastest races of his life, “Rocky” just didn’t have his A-game on at the Breeders’ Cup on Saturday – finishing a disappointing 13 of 14.  

The Saturday morning rain in California, a rarity, gave us early warning that the track would likely be very fast and speed favoring – making our bid to win even more daunting.  We knew we were going to have to stay close to the pace and hope the early leaders would wear themselves out in a speed dual, hopefully causing them to “back-up to us” in the stretch similar to the Santa Anita Gold Cup. 

unnamed resized 600

A battle did indeed ensue with the speed horses, but it was all at the controversial break with Bayern, eliminating his competition gladiator-style, and then moving to the lead uncontested with some comfortable fractions.  When jockey Tyler Baze asked Majestic Harbor to run, he dug in and tried to make his move. 

His determined effort to close on the leaders was in vain as the speedy inside rail allowed all those horses to just keep sailing along.  Majestic Harbor, feeling defeated early, decided to just throw in the towel and coast home - despite his Tyler’s encouragement and our distance, but waning, cheers. 

If our horse could have understood the financial difference to us for even a fifth place finish ($150,000), I think he would have kept trying.  We wanted to explain to him to “run it out past first base” just in case someone drops the ball!  But, they are horses, not humans and not machines that can be more easily predicted – both the mystery and misery of the racing. 

I still would not have traded the experience and I’m still immensely proud of my horse for being one of 14 starters in the field in one of the richest and most prestigious races in the world!

Moments before the race were electric and at one point in the paddock, just before the jockeys were legged-up, I was completely overwhelmed with emotion and adrenaline.  I fought back tears and took several deep breaths – to fully see, hear and smell everything around me so I wouldn’t forget. 

We hugged our friends and families and honored the moment with a prayer of gratitude. Our horse has given us the gift of an experience we had only dreamed of.  Even in the hours, days and weeks after the race, I am still feeling proud and blessed – rolling snapshots of the day are emblazoned in my memory forever. 

Add to that, I am in the best company of losers ever!  There were sheiks, millionaires and celebrities whose champions also ran less than par those two days and we were among them.  I’m not sure who said it but I’ve often used the quote “horses humble even Kings” – no statement can ever be more true.

Majestic Harbor appeared to have exited the race in good shape, but we did conduct a nuclear bone scan just to be certain.  While a few minor spots were detected, none could explain his poor performance.  We waited several days and then conferred with our partners and trainer Sean McCarthy for a plan. 

unnamed (1) resized 600

Our horse competed hard for a year in graded stakes company. Majestic Harbor will get a freshening away from the track and will hopefully emerge rested and ready for a 2015 campaign.  “Camp” for Rocky will allow him to put his head down for some grass, roll around in a nice sand lot and just feel the sunshine on his back untethered from the end of a leather shank.  Like people, Rocky may love his job as a race horse, but everyone can use a vacation and change of scenery. 

Plans for a 2015 Campaign

Going forward, we will likely add the option of turf racing to our portfolio as the older horse division appears to be full of talent with graduating 3-year-olds.  Rocky’s affinity to run over long distances, gives us more races to choose from and we hope he will take to the grass surface with gusto.

The game of racing is just that – a game.  We will strategize and pick spots where we think we can give Rocky the best chance to use his running style and talent to win – and will be back to battle again on the track.

While I didn’t have the same benefit of a freshening like my horse did, I did change gears and began to focus on Kentucky Derby 2015.  There’s no better way to restore hope and re-frame the dream than to turn your attention to the young horses just beginning their careers.  And the homecoming at Keeneland for
Breeders’ Cup 2015 planning begins in earnest too!

While time indeed “marches on” and winter approaches, I may just linger here like the leaves; in the memories of fall a bit longer.

Predictions for the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend

  
  
  

It’s still early in the season, but the NBA has announced that NBA All-Star Game voting will open on Dec. 11, following its announcement of expanding the ballot to all players.

With only a little over a month underway in the 2015 season’s belt, the league’s sleepers still have time to step it up and the standouts still have a chance to fall from grace before voting begins. Anything can happen! NBA-All-Star-Game-2014

Ultimately, though, the NBA All-Star Weekend is the fans to create. And isn’t that what makes it great?

Despite rumors of changing the line-up requirements, the Eastern and Western conferences will stick to a 12-player line-up for the Feb. 15 game.

Here are some of my predictions of the NBA players that will debut or return as All-Stars for the 2015 NBA All-Star Game Weekend:

NBA All-Star Debuts

Demarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans

The big kid in town has shown he is having his best season yet. Looking like a young Dwight Howard, the 21-year-old has helped the Pelicans reach a 6-4 record thus far.

Nikola Vucevic of the Orlando Magic

Scoring 19 points with 14 rebounds this past Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers alone, Vucevic has been a key player in the Magic’s impressive season thus far. He keeps a low profile, though, despite averaging 18.8 points a game. 

To Return From Last Year

From the East

Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans 

Davis is eager and enthusiastic as a forward on the court. The former Kentucky star is clearly capable of big things and, without a major set-back, will be returning for the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend.

From the West

Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers

Incredibly dynamic with a wide skill set, Lillard has shown that he is one of the smartest players in the league. We will all be disappointed if he doesn’t receive another invite to the NBA All-Star Weekend. 

NBA All-Star Game Staples

IMG 4574

From the East

Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat

Although no one would argue he is at his best, Wade remains one of the league’s top guards. The only question fans may be asking is can he still be as impressive as LeBron James? Regardless, we don’t see him being snubbed from the NBA All-Star Weekend any time soon. 

NBA-All-Star-Game-QuintEventsChris Bosh of the Miami Heat

Despite the Heat’s recent slump, the forward has continued to refine his skillset, emerging this season as an incredibly smart player and still an invaluable asset to Miami.

LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers

Although his homecoming has not brought the level of success that the team had hoped, he is LeBron James. Love him or hate him, the league’s best player will play for the Eastern Conference at the NBA All-Star Game.

From the West

Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers

After a rough start, the Lakers are beginning to hit their stride now having put up two wins a row. Riddled by questions of his injury and age, Bryant maintains he’s still in the game. He will always be a league favorite. 

Dwight Howard of the Houston Rockets

The power forward has been on fire this season. The interior defender has proved his capabilities time and time again, having won three Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks

Ahh the good 'ole steady Nowitzki. The quiet player may be winding down towards the end of his career at 36, but he is one of the hardest players to guard in the league. There is little doubt that he will make it to at least one more NBA All-Star Game.
