Last year, during our 7th anniversary week we went through the best athletes to wear the number 7. So naturally, this year for our 8th anniversary, we decided to follow that up with a list of the best players to ever wear the number 8. Here we go:
Cal Ripken Jr.
Baseball's Iron Man. It's absolutely absurd to think that Ripken played in 2,632 consecutive games during his career with the Baltimore Orioles. To put that in perspective, only one active player in Major League Baseball, Alex Rodriguez, has played in more games than that total. The streak stands as maybe the most unbreakable record in baseball (yes, I believe even more than Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak).
Tonight, country superstar Luke Bryan is kicking off his 2015 Farm Tour, putting on performances at eight farms across the Midwest and Southeastern United States through October 10th. Here at TicketNetwork we figured there was no better way to honor this unique tour than with a list of the top 10 farm animals.
Let’s be honest, cats being considered farm animals is a stretch. Farm cats are just more of a non-essential accessory. Sort of like buying a car with a spoiler; the spoiler serves no function at all (unless you have a high-end sports or race car), but can help complete the look of your ride, the same as a cat can complete the look of your farm.
Usually our What’s Trending Wednesday post covers a CURRENT trending topic, however in honor of TicketNetwork.com’s 8th Anniversary we're rewinding 8 years to see what was happening during the final week of September 2007.
1. The Foo Fighters release "Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace"
The Foo Fighters, led by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl debuted their sixth studio album on September 25, 2007. The album reached platinum status in five countries and was certified gold by the RIAA here in the States. However, the album’s greatest accomplishment may very well have been its 2008 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. With the release of Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, fans were introduced to a slew of popular tracks, including the singles “The Pretender” “Long Road to Ruin,” and “Cheer Up, Boys (Your Make Up Is Running).” As with other Foo Fighters albums, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace featured a mix of electric and acoustic songs.
For the second day of our 8th anniversary, we thought up a few things you might not know about TicketNetwork.com, in no particular order.
1. We Provide Experiences
Our bread and butter might be listing tickets to thousands of concert, sports, and theater events, but our ultimate goal is to make sure our customers have a great time wherever they're going.
2. We Have a Fire Truck
Yes, you read that right, a fire truck. Why a fire truck? Well, it definitely helps provide us something a little different every year when it's pulled out for our annual Fourth of July celebration, and is a hit with the kids!
We're turning 8 and could not be happier! In true TicketNetwork fashion, not only are we celebrating around these parts, we're passing on the fun to the folks who really matter: our customers!
