Phoenix, January 8-11
If you're coming to sunny, warm Phoenix in the middle of January for College Football's National Championship on Monday, Jan. 11, get in a few days early for a slate of other great games. Start the weekend with the Phoenix Suns hosting the Miami Heat Friday night, Jan. 8. Saturday night, take in the most geographically unlikely hockey game when the Phoenix Coyotes host the Nashville Predators. We're calling it now, that your Sunday will feature the Arizona Cardinals hosting someone in an NFL Wild Card playoff game on Sunday (if not, there's more than 200 golf courses in the Phoenix area), all of which is the perfect way to whet your appetite for Monday night's college title throwdown.
