  • 11 Things Golf Fans Need to See At the World Golf Hall of Fame

    There are "Hall of Fame" museums for virtually every sport and pastime out there, but based on our recent tour of the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Florida - this is one that every golf fan MUST visit at least once. What I loved about it is that our group ran the spectrum from "golf experts" to "novices" (me), yet everyone learned something new and all of us had a great time exploring the history of this amazing sport. For me personally, I think it also changed my impressions of golf and opened my eyes for just how much history and diversity have influenced this sport once limited to rich white guys in Scotland.

  • Hillsound Crampons Are My Secret Weapon Against Icy Terrain

    Crampons = Freedom From Slipping and Sliding on Ice

    As winter approaches, there’s few things more essential than a sturdy pair of trail crampons for hiking, running, or simply walking across packed snow and ice. I mean what’s more literal about freedom than how you move on two feet?

    All the Confidence Money Can Buy

    Slipping easily over shoes or boots you already own, putting on crampons is like turning your feet into an off-road vehicle. These pair of Hillsound Trail crampons are a great example of what I’m talking about. They have eleven heat-treated spikes that bite into any adverse surfaces that winter can drum up. What does that translate to? Confidence. 

    The flex hinge design on them is outstanding, keeping a firm grip to the ground as while your foot transitions to the next step. Heal up - no loss of traction. I'm smacking my head, wishing I'd had these years ago when I was helping to survey the arctic ocean ice sheet over one summer. Needless to say, I would have been our flag football team's MVP.

    While I’m taking this pair of Hillsound crampons on an upcoming trip to Patagonia, they’re just as suitable for a day in the local mountains or taking a stroll around the neighborhood to stretch your legs on an icy day.

    Who knew you could buy freedom and confidence this winter for just roughly $60? A pretty good deal in my opinion, and a gift that’s both practical and novel this holiday season.

  • Kyle Lamson is Using His Head to Help Athletes Save Theirs

    How much do you think about football helmet technology? If you are like most people, probably not a lot. Even when I played football in high school the only times I thought about my helmet was putting it on and taking it off and of course when I crashed into someone. It was bulky and awkward but thank god it was there. Over the past 21 years since then technology has improved dramatically but you never really think about the guys that create those designs or what drives them to do so.

    Tracking Pixel

    As a Padres member I attend a LOT of baseball games. I love the sport. For most people, the tickets are just a small fraction of the total cost of going to the game I've gotten good at being frugal.

It's a tough challenge because everywhere you look you are assaulted by opportunities to spend money on souvenirs, food, drinks, and other things. These are a few of my favorite tips to help you save money and be more healthy at the ball game. The good news is that while this is specifically about baseball - most of these tips will work great for other sporting events such as football, hockey, and basketball too.
