It’s time to get down to business and talk about the real reason that you and your friends and family are doing a 30 Plus Teams Tour .
Or maybe you’re going solo.
No matter what the circumstances are, you can break into your happy dance because you’re in a city to see a sport in person .
Yes you want to see all that Miami or Los Angeles has to offer, but let’s face it.
Your real reason for being here is to attend that football , baseball , hockey or basketball game in person .
South Beach can wait until that Miami Heat basketball game is over.
You and your friends looked at that basketball schedule before the season started just to see when the Pelicans would be playing at home in New Orleans .
Just your luck, they are playing and what even better luck, they’re playing a few days before Mardi Gras .
Stop snickering .
That is the team name.
The Pelican is the state bird of Louisiana .
Somebody did their research before you got to town .
You checked everything that there is to do in Los Angeles and then you noticed the hovkey, baseball , football and basketball schedules just to see which Los Angeles pro sports team or teams would be in town while you and the family are visiting Mickey Mouse at Disneyland .
You all are going to Memphis to see Graceland and of course take in all the madness that’s Beale Street .
One of the girls suggests that while you’re there, you should go over to Music City , Nashville , because the Tennessee Titans are going to be playing football against your favorite team , the Dallas Cowboys .
Yeah you can do both because Memphis isn’t that far from Nashville , tickets to the game are still available , and since all of you drive, this is going to be a great 30 Plus Teams Tour .
Football , baseball , hockey and basketball seasons seem to overlap .
Call me crazy , but you can’t tell me that the commissioners of all four sports didn’t get together and plan it this way .
That’s the beauty of a 30 Plus Teams Tour though .
If a city has a pro sports team , guess what ?
You’re going there with or without friends and family .
If it’s a team you dislike or could care less about , no problem .
Go see a game there anyway.
It might be a stadium or arena that’s been on your bucket list forever .
If it happens to be a team that you really love, you’re DEFINITELY breaking into a happy dance.
Let’s say though , you and the family want to see as much of New York City as you can, but you also want to see a hockey or basketball game at the place that calls itself , ” The World’s Most Famous Arena “, Madison Square Garden .
There’s a huge problem , though .
Tickets are extremely expensive for one person , let alone a family of five .
Don’t get discouraged , though .
Do some research , and this just doesn’t apply to New York City .
This is a 30 Plus Teams Tour .
Besides seeing the sights of a city, isn’t the purpose of a tour to see a game, no matter what the sport or the city is?
If you just happen to be in “The Big Apple “, take public transportation to watch New York ‘ s other hockey and basketball teams , the Islanders and Nets, over in Brooklyn at the Barclay’s Center?
Tickets are cheaper and you’ll have just as great a time.
Be adventurous on your tour.
Let’s say that you and the boys are staying at a hotel or hostel in Virginia , and you want to see some baseball or football games over in our Nation’s Capital , don’t be afraid .
Let that fan in you come out.
Go to that Washington Nationals baseball game or that Washington Redskins football game .
You know you want to and the Washington Metro can get you all to both stadiums, it’s that convenient .
Local fans take public transportation for their own 30 Plus Teams Tour .
Why can’t you?
Do that research before you leave home to see the quickest way to get to the game.
You might get some tips from locals on what else there is to do in the city, something that the guidebooks don’t mention .
You can bet that you’ll be striking up a conversation with the locals while you’re on the train or even the city bus.
Especially if you’re wearing a jersey , shirt, or hat of the other team .
