The Vikings have had talented runners over the years (Bill Brown, Dave Osborn, Ted Brown, Chuck Foreman), but No. 26 was the best ever to wear purple. Not only are his statistics tops in team history (6,818 yards, 32 touchdowns), but his style was as close to beautiful as football gets -- long, powerful strides, deceptive moves and breakaway speed. There was nothing quite like seeing Smith break into the secondary, juke a linebacker, evade a cornerback and outrun two safeties into the end zone. Then, instead of performing one of those in-your-face displays, he'd simply flip the ball to the ref and head for the sidelines with that boyish grin on his face. Fans got the impression that Smith saw football as a delight, not a macho crusade for self-worth.

Whether you get tickets for NBA, NCAA, NHL or MLB, you will witness some of the greatest shows this year. Attend to the games and matches accompanied by a beautiful escort Paris and it will sure be a memorable adventure!
When seasons change and the cold, white winter slowly leaves its place to the bright spring with colorful blossoms and cheerful chirping birds, it is the time when baseball fans start to dream about watching their favorite Major League Baseball team. Sunny days are perfect to watch some games. But if you are accompanied by a delightful escort Paris, you will sure be in a good mood to watch your favorite players in action.
Millions of fans make their dreams come true when they finally purchase the tickets for NBA, NHL and MLB, when their preferred teams from both American and National League will take away their crown. Regardless if you are a fan of Yankees, Red Sox, Kansas City Royals, Angels, Cardinals, Nationals, Dodgers or Mariners you will have the best day if you will be there when they will win the cup.
Request the best escort services, meet a ravishing escort Paris to keep you company while watching the match and be certain that she will be just as enthusiastic as you will be in the moment when your team will score. From April through early October New York Yankees will play in the Major League Baseball regular season. But if you are a fan of soccer, you must make sure you purchase the tickets for New York City FC, New York Cosmos and New York Red Bulls in advance.
Raise the Supporters Shield Banner, support your team properly and pray for them to do their best until they will win the game. The first ball already got kicked to start the 2016 season, but there will be a lot of other magical moments that will keep the supporters enticed and shouting for the entire season. If you will meet a glamorous escort to keep you company while watching the match, it will be a wonderful show. But you can also stay at home or go in a pub to watch your favorite players in action.
If you will be lucky enough to be caught on the giant screen Kiss Cam, your day will turn into a fantasy come true. Your meeting with the tempting escort Paris will be truly delightful and even though it will begin at the sporting event, it will end up with you being alone with her, in complete secrecy and intimacy. Get the tickets for the game, set up an appointment with a beautiful lady and spend a wonderful day in her company!
