Everyone has a bucket list - an absolute must-do experience before their time is up.For me - surprise surprise - its attending sporting venues to see the best of the best strut their stuff.America is littered with phenomenal sporting venues and each has a place in history for different reasons.The first - Madison Square Garden in downtown New York City.Myself and Hannah booked in to see the National Hockey Leagues New York Rangers against the famed Detroit Red Wings. My Adelaide teammates, Taylor Walker and Brad Crouch - both traveling the USA - joined us for the clash, which made the experience even greater!I had been to MSG two years ago for a pre-season NBA game and even though the venue biggest tenant was in action, the fact it was a pre-season game meant the crowd was only half full and half-baked when it came to cheering and supporting.In New York, basketball is king, while the NFLs Giants and Jets have a strong following in the Boroughs. However, the Rangers hold a special place in the citys heart and on this night, more than 18,000 flocked to support the team in a battle of two of the NHLs original six teams.Everything from the national anthem and pre-game introductions to the crowd interaction throughout the game lived up to MSGs reputation as The Worlds Most Famous Arena.Despite the Rangers going down 2-1, we all had a blast and when Mike Zibanejad scored in the second minute of the game, the Garden erupted and the chanting lasted until after the play had recommenced.Part of the attraction and enjoyment of attending an MSG event is before and after the game itself. Thousands eat and drink before the contest in the various pubs, bars and restaurants surrounding MSG which - unlike many major sporting venues - sits in the heart of Manhattan, easily accessible for the 8.4 million people who call New York home and the four South Australians enjoying a sporting holiday.Despite Hannahs cries to stay an extra few days in what is now her favourite city in the world, the following morning we jumped on a plane and headed for Green Bay - a world away from the hustle and bustle of NYC.As we descended into Green Bay on a tiny American Eagle jet, the only thing that captured our attention through the widows was mighty Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers.The township of Green Bay has a population of a mere 100,000, which makes it truly remarkable that its people can not only support, but allow an NFL team to flourish in its area. Green Bay is the Packers and the Packers are Green Bay.The Packers were born in 1919 and have resided in Green Bay ever since. They are 13-time champions and a whos who of Hall of Fame players and coaches have ome through the organisation.Unlike the other 31 teams in the NFL, the Packers are not a privately-owned team. The team actually has more than 350,000 stockholders which is governed by an elected board of directors. While this system is, as mentioned, different to every other side in the league, the Green Bay community has always rallied around the team and when you hear someone say this is the towns team - they truly mean it.The Packers are the only not-for-profit, community-owned team in all of the United States professional sporting codes.And that very statement is what makes the Packers -??and attending one of their games - so incredibly amazing.Lambeau Field is as historic and honorary as you will ever find in world sport. It is the oldest operating NFL venue and only baseballs Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox have longer tenancy at their respective venues.Lambeau is almost 60 years old and has had very little construction done in the years since. The stadium does though, manage a magical balance of tradition versus spectator comfort.The stadium is named after Curly Lambeau, a founder and head coach of the team who died of cancer just months before the stadium was opened.Onto the game... we picked a good one. Not in competitiveness (the Packers wound up winning 26-10) but famed foe Chicago was in town, ruthless and hated rivals of the Pack.A flight from Chicago to Green Bay is only 40 minutes and the drive is both beautiful and comfortable, meaning there were more than a few Bears fans in attendance. Packers fans are known as the Cheeseheads and many fans wear a Cheesehead as a hat (look them up online, theyre very funny and very different) which only makes sense when we saw dozens of Bears fans wearing mock cheese graters as hats.Joining another teammate, Tom Lynch, and friend Nathan Evison for the Packers vs. Bears clash, we were fortunate enough to sneak onto the sidelines pre-game, making for an unforgettable experience.There are a few more venues on my list of must-attends (Soldier Field, Bryant-Denny Stadium, The Big House, Death Valley etc etc etc) but for a days work, Madison Square Garden into Lambeau Field is a pretty good start!Next up, Steelers vs. Patriots at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.Follow me on Instagram (@joshjenkins04) and Twitter (@joshjenkins24 and #JJintheUSA) for photos, videos and chats as we embark on a few more of Americas premier sporting events.

CHICAGO -- White Sox left-hander Chris Sale will look to snap a six-week drought between victories when he takes the mound against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday evening.Sale, whose last victory came July 2, was the first pitcher in the majors to reach 14 wins this season and started for the American League in the All-Star Game. However, the lanky southpaw is 0-4 with a 4.43 ERA in his past six starts, dropping his overall record to 14-6 with a 3.30 ERA.The White Sox (57-64) have struggled along with their ace pitcher. They have lost 14 of their last 21 games, including a 9-0 blowout defeat in Fridays series opener against Oakland (53-69).Its tough, White Sox third baseman Todd Frazier said. I think everybody understands their role, I think everybody understands being a professional. Thats when youve got to come together. We talked the other day about understanding that its OK, were going to lose, were not going to win every game. But (keep) playing hard, going hard every day, diving for that ball, hustling out that at-bat and focusing on that kind of stuff, and hopefully the tides will change.The As will send journeyman left-hander Ross Detwiler (1-1, 4.15 ERA) to the mound against the White Sox. The 30-year-old southpaw started the season with the Cleveland Indians before he was designated for assignment. In two starts for Oakland, he is 1-1 with a 3.55 ERA.Detwiler has faced the White Sox only twice in his nine-year career. Both of those appearances came in relief, with Detwwiler allowing two runs on three hits in 2 2/3 innings.ddddddddddddSales winless streak has included a mix of bad performances and bad luck, not to mention a bizarre incident in which he reportedly sliced his teams throwback jerseys before a game because he thought they were uncomfortable. The White Sox suspended Sale for five days because of the outburst, but they elected not to move him before the Aug. 1 trade deadline.On paper, Sale would appear to have an advantage against the As up-and-down offense. He is 4-2 with a 3.04 ERA in 11 appearances (six starts) against Oakland during his career, including a victory April 4 in which he limited the As to three runs in seven innings.However, Oakland erupted for nine runs Friday to match its most lopsided win of the season. Khris Davis, Stephen Vogt and Yonder Alonso all went deep as the As snapped a five-game losing streak.Oakland manager Bob Melvin is making plans to be without reliable shortstop Marcus Semien soon. Semiens wife is nine months pregnant, and her due date is Saturday.Whenever the baby arrives, Semiens long streak of consecutive games will come to an end. He has started 124 consecutive games, which is the second-longest active streak in the majors.Its impressive, Melvin said. Ive seen guys play and play and play a lot of times out of necessity, and they look run down some. But he never does.
