Do I dare to even bring up the Giants? That is a question that I keep asking myself.
I’ll start by saying that I have been a Giants fan my entire life. If you open my closet during football season, you are going to mostly see NY Giants t-shirts. Needless to say, I am a fan.
With that being said, we all know that the Giants are not having the best season of their lives up to this point. Thankfully, the G men are no longer tied for last place and have been able to get a couple of wins under their belt, but it hasn’t been easy to be a fan this season.

So, here’s what: you can be the youngest, the best or even the greatest potential for football players here in this century but take this seriously; you can never be the best footballer you dream to be if you don’t know how to eat right and keep your nutritional regimen football-fit.
Basically, training and diet are the two keys to ensure that you’d be at your performance’s peak whenever you’ll play. The training part is easy. It may come hard to do because you really have to sweat a lot in practice but all you have to do is do the drill, follow training routines you’ve done well even before and perfect your part. But to do the training and be able to go with the match, you have to have enough energy and fuel to go and get going. Smart as you are, the only thing that will be able to give you that kind of fuel you need is the food you eat.
By now most people are aware of the claim that playing video games significantly improves hand-eye coordination; so much so that surgeons are encouraged to warm up by using surgical simulation software prior to conducting a delicate surgery. It has also been observed that visual skills and reflex speed are enhanced by video gaming. This article investigates to what extent these improvements might be a benefit in team sports such as American football; and at what level of play the benefits might be most apparent.
When the autumn leaves start to fall off the trees, football is not far behind. Starting around September, football parties start to really heat up. When you consider how many people can actually show up at these parties and the appetites involved, it is easy to see how they might become quite expensive. If your home doubles as a fall football party checkpoint, finding ways to save cash is a must. Here are some awesome tips to keep all those appetites satiated without costing a fortune:
Always Serve Appetizers
Big appetites like you find at football parties do not mix well financially with expensive main dishes. Most people want to have some kind of main dish such as buffalo wings, hamburgers, sub sandwiches or even steaks. If you are planning on having something like that, appetizers are an absolute must. The primary reason for this is to help fill them up so that they do not require multiple servings for the expensive stuff. Simply put out a tray of inexpensive appetizers like celery, carrots, chips and salsa, potato chips and dip. These will help quell the hunger.
Joseph Fauria, a tight end for the Detroit Lions, made a name for himself on Sunday. Fauria contributed to the Lions 27-20 victory over the Redskins with a five-yard touchdown, but his football skills aren’t the reason people are talking. His dance moves are what caught everyone’s attention.
The Bears have been around since 1919, picked up nine NFL championships, and make some of the best plays in the NFL. The Internet is full of great Chicago Bears pictures, from locker room photos and sideline shots of players and fans to action shots from each game and training days.
If you want to get your own set of photos from your favorite game or of your favorite player, the Bears offer a lot of photos and even some videos on their own website. There are also other sites dedicated to photos just of the bears or of their cheerleaders and superfans that are available all over the Web.
If you want printed photos, there are also many different services you can go to for a great version of your favorite shot.
Peyton Manning is good at football, but he’s even better at being American. The guy just screams likable, whether he’s getting interviewed post-game, helping kids out, or appearing on SNL. Whenever I hear his name, I immediately hear that Gatorade commercial from almost a decade ago in my head. “Peyton Manning your very own action toy- personal quarterback he’s all yours!” Anybody? Just me? Okay.
Now, seeing as how I pay a lot more attention to college football than professional, seeing Peyton in orange actually threw me for a second, until I remembered the ESPN headlines from a while back about his move to the Broncos. The fact that I even watched the game was more of a happened-t0-be-in-a-sports-bar coincidence than anything else, but boy am I glad I caught it, because it was amazing.
A wedding is about who you love, but why can’t it be about what you love too? If you’re a sports freak, then your wedding shouldn’t be the one day that you don’t let your team flag fly! Here are some great ideas to have a sports themed wedding while still maintaining an elegant affair for your special day.
1. Start with the proposal! You might be over the somewhat-cliche sports game proposal, but if she’s a huge fan, it’s a great way to make the moment meaningful. Or, switch it up and propose over a game of mini-golf or flag football. You’ll think of something.
2. Take some sporty engagement pictures. Playing around during photo shoots is a great way to get amazing candid shots, so don your matching jerseys and take it to the field. Continue reading “10 Awesome Sports Themed Wedding Ideas” »
