The Action Is Packed Front to Back This Weekend and There’s No Better Place to Watch Than at The Still In Las Vegas
Oh, baby, the sports are stacked for this weekend and starting early, so prepare for a marathon and not a sprint. There’s the standard Sunday schedule crowded with NFL football games, of course, but there’s also UFC Fight Night Saturday and a slew of final regular season MLB games to keep an eye on this weekend. So make sure you hydrate, stretch and get to The Still in Las Vegas with plenty of time to spare for a sports-filled spree.
Keep the faith, Raider Nation, and don’t throw in the towel yet. Although they’re off to a 0-3 start, some of that can be slated as unlucky as none of the losses were particularly large blowouts. This Sunday’s game against Russell Wilson and the Broncos starts at 1:25, so plenty of time to grab a stool and a pint (or hey, stop by church and light a candle or two if you’re religious–couldn’t hurt at this point), and settle in for what will finally be the game where the Raider’s season turns around.
The main card this UFC Fight Night actually starts at 4 pm and leads off with a Strawweight match between Mackenzie Dern vs Yan Xiaonan. This is aptly timed to begin the day before the Raiders-Bronco game, proving that the scheduling Forces That Be are on top of things. The second event on the main card is Sodiq Yusuff vs Don Shainis for the men’s Featherweight, followed by Randy Brown vs Francisco Trinaldo for the men’s Welterweight. It’s probably best to get to The Still earlier in the day so you don’t have to wage your own fight night for a seat–UFC occurring while Mercury is in retrograde…a solid crowd is a safe bet.
The regular season is wrapping up and the playoffs are nigh! While the Dodgers have already run away with the NL West and the AL West has been clinched (again) by the Astros for the third year in a row, there are still a few divisions left unconquered. As things come down to the wire, you’re not going to want to miss any of the Wild Card contenders as they try to claw their way into the postseason. Even if you’re not a huge baseball fan, you can still join the jury and watch Aaron Judge hit homer after homer nailing the new league record. As he racks them up, make sure to order The Golden Boy cocktail to celebrate this young man’s impressive feat!
