Born deep in the heart of the Amazon jungle and raised by a troupe of roving Ranchera music players, Andrés is a diehard Boston sports fans who celebrated the 2004 ALCS victory of Red Sox over the Yankees as the sun rose on the Mediterranean. When not developing content for Ticket Liquidator, he can be found enjoying beer, baseball, disc golf and bull fighting. He once shot himself in the thumb with a B.B. gun in an attempt to discern if the gun was firing correctly. It was.
"Defending World Series champions the Boston Red Sox enter the season 2014 looking to do the only thing harder than winning a championship: repeating. David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Jon Lester are back with a crop of young players hungry to make their mark. 162 games lie in front of the Red Sox, who have their work cut out for them in the loaded AL East."
Dave is a theatre junkie (especially musicals) and a lover and student of the culinary arts. He develops content for Ticket Liquidator, specializing in theatre, and is also a freelance writer. In his spare time, he enjoys singing/acting, exercising, cooking, and watching cartoons. He also visits Broadway as much as possible and loves discovering new attractions and restaurants in New York City.
"Not only is this show written by the geniuses behind one of my favorite musicals, Next to Normal, it stars the incomparable Idina Menzel, original green witch Elphaba in Wicked, activist Maureen in Rent, and voice of Elsa the Snow Queen of Arendelle in Disney's Frozen. With an interesting plot that simultaneously features two versions of lead character Elizabeth's life, If/Then might just be your new favorite Idina role."
Dyana is an avid New England Patriots fanatic. Whether it be on the couch, at a sports bar, or live in the bleachers themselves, you will catch her jumping, screaming, and cheering on the Pats. Her favorite day of the week is Sunday, for obvious reasons, and when she isn’t watching NFL football, she enjoys art. She loves drawing, painting, and photography in her spare time, and would love to take her talent to Boston over NYC any day.
"If you wanna get in touch with your redneck side, what better way than to see one of country music’s most prestigious artists? This multi-platinum chart-topper never disappoints his fans, producing genuine, Southern country-pop hits without fail. Of all the country performers I’ve seen live, McGraw is one that I can’t wait to see again, with his humble personality and ability to engage the crowd. And if you don’t wanna stop there, grab the Country MegaTicket for your chance to see Tim McGraw and more remarkable country music artists this summer!"
Ian is an international playboy with properties and girlfriends on several continents. He designs nuclear power stations in his spare time (apart from weekends, when he runs a spiritual temple called The Greenhouse of Love) and prides himself on his homemade "Action cookies"; cookies that depict dramatic scenes from famous movies. His personal faves are "The Augustus Gloop Heart Attack" and "No Cookie For Old Men", a unique creation with a pressurized air pocket in the middle that has injured some consumers. He breeds giant tortoises and plans to outlive all of them. Unless he dies.
"If you’re in Vegas in April there’s only one performer big enough to adequately complement the bright lights of Sin City: Elton John! See monster hits like “Rocket Man,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” and “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting” blasted out by the man who’s been there, done it all, and sold everyone else the t-shirt. Accept no substitutes; Elton is alive and kickin’!"
Good luck meeting a bigger St. Louis Cardinals fan. One day in 1991, a four-year-old version of John Paul was annoyed at his older siblings for whatever reason (maybe they told him to eat his vegetables), and since they were Yankees fans, he decided he didn’t want to be a Yankees fan any longer. Instead, he opened The Hartford Courant and decided to root for that team that scored the most runs. The Cardinals beat the Giants by a lot, and the stubborn JP has been sticking with the Cardinals ever since. JP can also thank his siblings for his U2 fandom – he’s seen U2 live over 40 times. Besides the Cardinals and U2, JP enjoys the finer things in life – flag football, baseball simulation leagues, Taco Bell, and Mountain Dew. He fears only alligators, crocodiles, and brain aneurysms. Just don’t call him John.
The annual Run for the Roses is one of the most thrilling events in all of sports.

Break out your favorite fancy hat and white attire, and head out to Churchill Downs this year if you have the chance.
Though she can’t literally juggle, Stacey, multi-tasker extraordinaire, visualizes tossing around flaming swords as she tackles her to do list.

blogs works seriously on her own writing. More importantly, she does her part to contribute to the Internet's wealth of funny cat photos.
"It’s as simple as this: Lindsey Stirling mesmerizes me. Not just me, as she is a YouTube sensation and former quarter-finalist on America’s Got Talent.

Then get yourself off the internet and to a live performance!"
Toni likes to say it's easier to list the jobs she hasn't tried. From lifeguard to lounge singer, bartender to bill collector, door-to-door salesperson to business analyst--Toni has been there and done that. Then, she decided that what she really wanted to be was a writer. Be careful what you say and do around this one—you might end up in her novel!
"Yes! No, seriously, 'Yes.' I forgot how good this band was until I had a 'Who’s on first?' moment with a twenty-something co-worker, which prompted me to suggest songs for her to listen to. I listened to them myself and was reminded how incredible they are. They’re playing intimate venues, so it will be easy to find great seats, too."
