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.
Other than coverage of the Triple Crown horse racing--the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes--equestrian sports are largely absent the media coverage that other sports receive. The American equine industry, however, is a vastly diverse and economically productive business. According to the American Horse Council Foundation's 2005 economic study, the horse industry generates 1.4 million full-time jobs in the U.S. and pays $1.9 billion in taxes. Additionally, there are horses in every state and forty-five states have at least 20,000 horses each.
Despite these facts, the lack of mainstream media attention to equestrian sports leave some to believe that horseback riding is an expensive, strictly upper-class sport and not worthy as a career option.
Ever wish you could run up the wall of a building, run across the roof,
jump to the next roof, and just roll onto the ground? Don't lie, I know
you have (I know I certainly have!). The Washington Post recently
posted an article on a 40 year old man who has taken up parkour after watching the opening sequence in Casino Royale.
It got me wondering how one would even begin to learn a sport like this
so I did some research and I'm going to let you know exactly how you
can get started.
