Sports

  • Conventional wisdom suggests that by the time you are in your 30s that behaviors and routines are pretty much set when it comes to sports. However, this is actually a great time to try new things and hone skills before your body starts to atrophy.

  • The weather's cooling down. The games are getting more intense. It must be time for the MLB playoffs. However, these are not the same playoffs that have existed over the past several years. Sadly the image above is not what it looked like in Petco Park today as the Padres and Cardinals faced off for game one. Instead, there are no fans in the stadium, more teams are taking part, there's no traditional home vs away game dynamics, and most rule changes that are new for 2020 will be in place.

  • The opening games of the new NFL season are done, and while it is too early to judge who will lift the Super Bowl, we decided to make a go of it anyway.

  • At this point in the year I would normally be sitting in my seats at Petco Park cheering on my Padres but … these are unique times. While the first half of the year was dominated by cancelations and questions about if we’d ever have a chance to watch our favorite athletes this year, right now is an exciting time for sports fans. That is assuming of course that you have good high-speed internet and cable so you can watch the games live!

  • Sport is a big part of American life, always has been and always will be and that's why a sports road trip is one of the top travel ideas that we get questions about. Whether these are teams you grew up with or a reunion of college buddies, taking a sports road trip is a great excuse to get out of town.

  • Conventionally you might think about hiking or using Jeep trails to go explore the history of the wild west mining boomtowns. However, Virginia City, Nevada has a bunch of bike trails that you can take to explore the history of what was once a vibrant mining town and today is one of the top places anywhere in the world to go explore an authentic wild west town that somehow manages to be family-friendly despite it's rough and tumble appearance.

  • Almost everything is more exciting when you can put money down and bet on it. Horse racing, football, now even NASCAR is getting in the sports betting world. However, no group of fans has refined the concept of sports betting to an art more than soccer fans. Not only can you bet on a team to win but you can even bet on who goes to what team. Honestly as a guy who enjoys a live match but gets bored watching most televised games... things like this just make it way more interesting. Let's take a look at how soccer player transfer betting works and how you can join in where legally allowed.

  • Motocross is not just a sport, but an experience, a feeling and a subtle description of adventure. But at the same time, it isn’t something that one can simply wake up to and go on for. Here are five tips for beginner motocross riders to get started right...

  • It was a rough start to the off-season for the New England Patriots when Tom Brady — the greatest quarterback of all time — made the decision to take his supreme talents to Tampa Bay. And after 20 years with the franchise, the six-time Super Bowl Champion will continue his NFL career as a Buccaneer. While his departure was announced in mid-March, fans are still coming to terms with his absence as it officially marks the end of an era.

  • The coronavirus has wreaked havoc—not just on our personal lives—but also on sports, entertainment, and music industries to name but a few. One huge reshuffle is the postponing of Euro 2020, a massive European soccer tournament that is almost as big as the World Cup, by one year to Euro 2021. Don't worry though, while the delay may be frustrating to fans - it's going to be an awesome celebration we can all look forward to next year!

  • Australian Football came about when Tom Wills, one of the founders, encouraged the winter game of football as a way to keep cricketers fit when out of season. Today it has evolved into one of the hottest sports on the planet. Even though I've never had the chance to attend a game in person, the videos excite me for the opportunity 

  • I think most of us have heard of a grape stomp - whether it is a memory from an old TV show like I Love Lucy or an email from a local winery inviting you to compete, it's a fun way to spend a late summer or fall afternoon with friends. I attended my first grape stomp as a guest of South Coast Winery in Temecula last week and it was an eye-opening experience. Not just for me - but for many of the competitors too. What seems like an easy task is actually way more complicated... if you want to win!

  • Summer is almost over but that doesn't mean we can't savor every last moment. Despite what some may say - right now is a great time to be alive and I'm always ready to celebrate some of my favorite things. When Chevrolet invited me for an afternoon that included a tour of a baseball bat factory, batting practice, and an opportunity to drive a Silverado truck through Orange County, CA traffic... I said heck yeah! 

  • You have your home and outdoor kitchen, what's next when it comes to building your perfect outdoor space? For some it might be a pool and others it might be a putting green, but what about a home basketball court instead? Sure, you can throw a hoop up on your garage but that risks hitting cars and potentially uneven surfaces that aren't designed for the game. Let's take a look at how you can take the game to the next level by adding a real basketball court to your home!

  • Baseball is still the great American sport and while it is slow and lacks that action that hockey, lacrosse, or even soccer have - it is a tradition that father's and sons can still celebrate each summer. Luckily there are lots of ways to get your son involved in baseball this summer on and off the field.

  • For those that thought they won big money this weekend only to find out that things weren't what they thought, I'm sorry. Don't worry though - what you you just experienced was the "thrill" of betting on live sporting events. While the Kentucky Derby is over for this year, there's still plenty of opportunities around the world to score big money if you are able to combine luck and analytical skills to make the right picks. Here's our picks for the top sporting events around the world to win big on!

  • Whether you’re a Tiger Woods fan or not, this past weekend at the Masters was definitely something very special in the golf world.

  • When it comes to iconic sporting venues we create some of the best in the world. I know other countries have soccer stadiums that are bigger and there are some pretty quirky architecture too. However, we've produced some of the most iconic sporting venues in the world that have hosted teams and athletes that go well beyond just "American Heroes" to become true international legends. Visiting places like this can help bring back memories, inspire youth, and are simply a great excuse to go out and visit a new city!

  • Last year marked a historic Boston Red Sox season with their 4th World Series win in 15 years and a franchise record 108 regular season wins. Hotel Commonwealth is not just the "Official Hotel of the Boston Red Sox" but they have the ultimate Red Sox fan suite and the best Red Sox hotel packages in Boston. 

  • To poker players and enthusiasts, the story of Chris Moneymaker is the stuff of legend. Sixteen years ago, he entered a world-class professional tournament, having qualified via an online satellite game from a certain emerging poker brand. He would not only go on to win the Main Event of the tournament and a multimillion-dollar prize, but his unexpected triumph would also help to kickstart the online poker revolution. It was a remarkable feat that no amateur player since has accomplished. However, that would change at the start of 2019.
