Phoenix, Las Vegas and Palm Springs start cooling off as we head into autumn. With travel prices (as well as temperatures) down from summer highs, the Southwest is a great place to head for some golfing fun.
I've played soccer all my life. I've had ups, I've had downs and I've had several injuries. The most regrettable injuries I've had are the times when I've been too rushed lazy to switch from my cleats to regular shoes. You see, what non-sports playing individuals might not realize is while cleats are absolutely wonderful at providing traction on grass and turf terrain, they're downright hazardous when it comes to concrete.
In my opinion, they're almost as dangerous as rollerblades on concrete--and easily just as socially unacceptable.
Baseball is one of America's favorite pastimes. Kids love to play catch with their dads. Not only is it fun way to spend the afternoon but also a great way for parents to bond with their children. Gadgets sports toys make a simple game like catch even more fun-tastic and are a great gift idea for the holidays.
I hate sports. I know that living in Southern California this goes against all the laws of nature--which include but are not limited to rooting for either the Angels or the Dodgers and getting excited about things like the Superbowl (I like the Puppy Bowl...)--but really, sports just aren't my thing. I have broken about six fingers, torn some ligaments, and had various other injuries during my childhood, almost all of which were sports-related, so yeah. Me + sports = no thanks.
However, table tennis? That's a sport I can get excited about! The sound of the ping-pong ball, the whoosh of the paddle, the sweat on my brow. Ah yes, table tennis, the game of champions!
So imagine my excitement when I found this winning item from Gizmine: Self Table Tennis.
Well, sorry to break it to you, but you missed opening day. However, you haven't missed much. Time to make those plans, dip into your sick days and get out to the ball park.
I did the leg work for you and here you have a comprehensive list of special saving offers for all thrity major league baseball team's spectator tickets this season. Except for the Red Sox, they all have special deals for families, and students and more.
It pains me that the Sox don't have much in the way of discounts, but with the smallest stadium, and the most loyal fans, they really don't have to work too hard to fill the seats. If you want to save money and you're a Boston fan, it might be cheaper to take the road trip to Pawtucket and see their farm team play. Paw Sox seats start at $7 and only go as high as $11.
Can you feel it? Madness is in the air. March Madness that is. The sound of sneakers squeaking up and down the courts of College campuses will soon be echoing through televisions, and if you're really retro, radios across the country. CBS Sports Mobile has decided to offer another, better option again this year in the form of an updated On Demand iPhone app.
