Background

In the late '90s, former tennis pro Charlie Pasarell and his business partner had a vision to build a world-class tennis facility. In the spring of 2000, the two opened the Indian Wells Tennis Garden near Palm Springs, California. The Tennis Garden is the second largest tennis stadium in the world and is also a full service and year-round tennis club. This amazing facility is surrounded by mountains and has year-round great weather.

Pacific Life Open

The Indian Wells Tennis Garden has hosted the Pacific Life Open ever since the stadium opened its doors in 2000. Aside from the four Grand Slams of tennis, the Pacific Life Open is the most watched and most attended ATP Tour event with over 250,000 visitors annually. Maria Sharapova, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are all past winners of the California-based event.

Great Moments

Even though the Indian Wells Tennis Garden is used mainly for tennis events, it also has the versatility to host other events. The Garden has played host to some of the music business' biggest acts like The Eagles, Tom Petty, Pavarotti and Bocelli. Indian Wells Tennis Garden made history on October 2008, when it hosted the first outdoor NBA game in the modern era. The Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets played a preseason game at Indian Wells.

Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
