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.

Recently, a nutrition professor lost 27 pounds when he went on a Twinkie Diet. Instead of eating meals, he ate a Twinkie every three hours. Sound absurd? Definitely. But he was trying to prove the point that it's the number of calories you eat, not necessarily what you eat. Limiting himself to less than 1,800 calories a day, he was able to drop 27 lbs and bring down his body mass index from overweight to normal. All this in ten weeks. Of course, I don't suggest the Twinkie Diet for anyone, but it's a classic case of counting calories and making them count.
The holidays are fast approaching and some of us may dread the extra pounds we'll be donning from endless parties and cocktails. Our wallets may be deflating from gift buying, but don't let that stop you from staying in shape. Here are some cheap and free ways to maintain your health and avoid the holiday bloat.
When viewed through a certain prism, this is a particularly weird year for the Texas Rangers to finally make it to the World Series. Not only have the Texas Rangers faced bankruptcy this year, but most everyone knows that former President George Bush once owned the Texas Rangers, so his name's coming up again during a pretty contentious election season.
First, what's up with the Texas Rangers' bankruptcy problems?
