Now that the confetti has settled and the Packers are the official Super Bowl XLV champs, it's time for JerryWorld to play host to a plethora of different live events until football season rolls around again (whether or not that will actually happen anytime soon is another story altogether). First on the heavily booked agenda is the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam. And yes, you guessed it, this is going to be one very large monster truck rally. For those of you who are well versed in the activities and events associated with Monster Jam, you'll be happy to know that amongst all of the vehicles set to be featured at the event, the Black Stallion, Iron Warrior and King Krunch will all be driven by some of the most recognizable drivers in the monster truck industry (See: Mike Vaters, Trey Myers, David Smith, etc.). For those who are less informed when it comes to Monster Jam, you'll be interested to know that the average monster truck weighs 10,000 pounds and can fly up to 130 feet in the air, and that's impressive--we don't care what anyone says. Monster Jam kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $30 to $140 plus fees. Visit ticketmaster.com or monsterjam.com.
