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.
Welcome to the greatest show on all the infinite earths. Thanks to you, our faithful five fans. This week sees the return of that beer drinking, laid back game-playing, flipper of birds, Yasar.

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.
Julia Newman, a 24 year old law student in New York, made headlines with her blog Buns of Steal which documents her quest to acquire free gym workouts for an entire year. Her plan is to "hop" around the five boroughs, taking advantage of every free trial and coupon she can find. When asked how she felt about this concept of exercise on a budget, Lesley Voth, author of Simply Fantastic: Living Better On Less, agreed with Julia on the fact that visiting gyms in your area on a trial basis gives you the advantage when negotiating a good deal. "On the other hand," she says, "I see no sense in traipsing around the city, or countryside, looking for a free deal at a gym."
The contributing writers on Julia's blog may disagree with Lesley; however, the price in gas, public transportation and time spent traveling are far more costly than any savings from gym hopping. If her PR stunts provide a book deal, Julia Newman may be laughing us all the way to the bank, but for now, there are many alternative ways to keep your fitness routine cheap.
