Creeking – The Perfect Sport For Adrenaline Junkies

sports photo

Description If you are an adrenaline junkie, then Creeking is definitely for you. Creeking is a high level, extreme sport, filled with danger. If you are on the adventurous side and don’t mind taking risks, then this sport is perfect for you. Creeking, which is technically a branch of kayaking, involves descending from very steep and rapid whitewater. It also involves descending from waterfalls and slides or into any steep low-volume river. It tends to be on the dangerous and extreme side of kayaking compared to freestyle or sea-kayaking. Unique Attributes A big consideration for the sport of Creeking is very specific water flows. Too little water in a stream or too much water can compromise a Creeker’s safety. In North America creeks normally run ...

The Thrill Of The Hunt: Bow Hunting Antelope

the thrill of hunting photo

Bow hunting for antelope is one of the most challenging tasks a hunter will every face. The temperatures during most antelope bow seasons can be in the 90’s or higher. Factor in difficult rolling sagebrush or prairie terrain, rattlesnakes, and incredible eyesight and harvesting an antelope with a bow is very difficult. A positive of hunting antelope is that you are always seeing them. Nothing like elk hunting where a hunter can go a couple of weeks without seeing an elk. Antelope are generally in site and help the hunter keep his/her motivation up for the hunt. Unfortunately a lot of hunters don’t take antelope seriously. I have seen way too many antelope hunters, mainly during rifle season, drive around in their pickup until they ...

Boning Your Animal In The Field

sports photo

I hear this complaint almost everyday during hunting season. We had a great time hunting, but it was so much work dragging our animal to the pickup. My question is always why did you drag your animal to the pickup? Overview Hunters have it ingrained in their minds that they have to gut their harvested animal and then drag it whole to their transportation. It is very difficult lifting a whole animal minus it’s guts into the back of the pickup. Then hunters generally want to hang their animal. The idea is that it will be easier to skin the animal, which it is, and perhaps age the meat. Aging the meat can be argued either way. However, most hunters do not have a way ...

Shaun White – Defying Gravity

sports photo

The face of winter sports success in America is unbeatable in the halfpipe and remarkable in the air. Shaun White has proved his mettle in snowboarding and skateboarding, emerging as the sports superstar. Early Life The two-time Olympic gold medallist was born to Cathy and Roger White in San Diego, California. As a child, he went through two open-heart surgeries to correct a heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot. Surfing and skateboarding were a part of Shaun’s adventures as he grew up in California. In addition to these, winters were usually spent skiing at Bear Mountain and Okemo Mountain. He enjoyed living life on the edge, so at the age of six, Cathy introduced him to the board and found that he was able ...

How To Increase Your Rifle Hunting Success

sports photo

Many of the techniques we have discussed for bow hunting in previous articles will also benefit rifle hunters. Although it easier to harvest an animal with a rifle than it is a bow, often times rifle hunters face stiff competition for hunting areas. There are more rifle hunters in the field than bow hunters. For some reason game animals tend to become more cautious after the first shot of the rifle season is fired. Get Comfortable With Your Rifle Before the season starts make sure you sight in your rifle in with the exact ammunition you plan to use during the season. I will tape the ballistic information on the side of my rifle butt for various distances out to 500 yards. This is information ...

Kitesurfing – A Superb Adrenaline Boost

sports photo

Imagine yourself riding the waves. Spinning and twirling in the vast expanse of the sea as a massive kite powers you and your board. If this gives you an adrenaline rush, then the dangerous yet exhilarating sport of kitesurfing is for you. Most of the kitesurfers have been windsurfing for a long time, so they understand the wind and how it acts under different conditions.  Areas where kitesurfing is done usually have schools where you can take lessons before you embark on your journey as a kitesurfer. History Most of the sports have a history that goes into ancient times, but kitesurfing is a fairly young sport. While the ideas that created the sport were developed during the 19th century, kitesurfing became a sport in ...

Bow Hunting Large Whitetail Bucks

sports photo

This article is all about bow hunting large whitetail bucks. A large buck can be a very challenging to harvest. As a buck gets older, he increasingly grows smarter and often times more nocturnal. If it wasn’t for the rut, harvesting a large whitetail buck may be nearly impossible. I have stalked elk and even mule deer, but have never had any luck sneaking up on a whitetail buck. That is not to say it can’t be done, just saying I have never done it. Generally speaking whitetails hide in dense cover, which means the spot and stalk technique is not useful with whitetails unless your a ninja. That leaves us with planting our butts and letting a big buck come to us. We can ...

Wingsuit Flying – The Greatest Adrenaline Rush

sports photo

The famous Greek mythology of Icarus and his father flying out of Crete has been a figment of fantasy for many children as they were growing up. While flying like a bird has been man’s dream for centuries now, wingsuit flying also known as proximity flying, is the closest anyone can get to the bird-like experience of flying. A Century Of Trial And Errors It has taken us approximately a century to perfect this extreme sport, which is still known to involve fatalities. The earliest attempt in wingsuit flying was made by Franz Reichelt, who was a 33 year old tailor. On February 4, 1912, Franz lost his life as he jumped off the Eiffel Tower to test his invention. Eighteen years later, in 1930 ...

Bow Hunting Large Mule Deer Bucks

the thrill of the hunt photo

This article is all about bow hunting mule deer, but many of the concepts discussed will work well for rifle hunting mule deer as well. Overview Male mule deer fall into two categories. Super dumb or super smart. When a mule deer buck is younger, say below three years of age, they can be incredibly easy to hunt. If they make it past their early, stupid years, it’s almost like they flip a switch and become super smart. This article is about the super smart ones. Ambushing In previous articles we have discussed ambushing elk and antelope. I am sure there are places that an ambush is possible, however generally speaking ambushing large mule deer is not feasible. Calling We have also discussed calling as ...

The Thrill Of The Hunt: Bow Hunting Elk

the thrill of the hunt photo

There are very few things you can do with your pants on that are as thrilling as calling in 700 pound screaming, bull elk within 20 yards. The experience will leave you shaking at the knees. There are basically three ways of bow hunting an elk; stalking, calling, and ambushing. Stalking Elk can be stalked. It is difficult, but it can be done. A bow hunter can locate an elk by calling it or observing it from afar and then start stalking or slow stalking in heavy timber without an elk spotted. Lets examine slow stalking first. This technique is generally used when you are in an elk area, but don’t have an elk located. This is a great technique for afternoon hunting. The usual ...

Thrill Of Lying In Sports

I learned something this year and that is to never hang out with Jason Pierre-Paul of the New York Giants and Fireworks. That is a bad, bad combo. So I have been kicking around ideas and I think I am going to do a two part series of the problems in sports and how it is a reflection of society general. This week I want to discuss the issue of lying and the thought process of innocent until proven guilty even though you know you are guilty.

My Love Hate Relationship With College Football

the thrill of sports photo

The college football is a wonderful game. I love to watch it at 9:00am on Saturday and then end my night with the 5:00pm game of the week if you will on ABC. Hell, I might even catch some PAC-12 action or watch Hawaii vs. whomever all the way till 11:00pm. It gets me ready for Sunday. However I do have few issues with the game itself, the setup and the B.S. that is shoveled through our TV’s week in and week out. I figure the best way to cover this is to check them off my list, love-hate style. Love: The college football atmosphere inside and outside the stadium. The fans, the cheerleaders, the band, the fight songs, the mascots, the whole works. If ...

Cave Diving – Is It In Your League?

cave-caving-underwater-exploring-underground

There are some people who like football. Others like basketball. Adventurist types may like rock climbing, scuba diving, or even parasailing. Then there are those who like to cave dive. What on (or under) earth is cave diving? It is exactly as it sounds – diving into underwater caves. This is not to be confused with cavern diving – which is much safer, and considered recreational in contrast to cave diving. In cavern diving, the diver will go as deep as some 100 feet into the water – somewhere between the cave itself and the surface of the water. Their entry point is always visible. With cave diving, however, the diver goes well beyond sight of the entry point, through the cavern, and into the ...

Football Gambling Rules

With football season rapidly approaching I figured I would lay out my own personal rules of betting in case you have gambling problem like me and your strategy isn’t working. I have learned these guidelines from other gambling junkies, bookies, sports book workers, and just plain old dumb luck types. I lived in Nevada for five years. What a state! It takes you a solid good six months to a year of living there to block out mentally that there are slot machines in your grocery store. And I am not talking about mom and pop grocery stores; I am talking about chain grocery stores. Crazy thing about it, people would be playing them.

Skydiving: Extreme Sport

extreme sports photo

People started skydiving in China in the 1100s. Leonardo DaVinci also contributed much to the development of this amazing sport: in the 15th century he designed a wooden framed, pyramid-shaped parachute. As he was generally a foretimed pioneer with his inventions in the Middle Ages, his idea was tested only much later, in the 20th century, by Adrian Nichols. Although World War I was the first big event, when pilots needed to consider jumps as a method of escape and not just a sport anymore. The first jump from an airplane was performed in 1922 and experiments with freefall started in 1925. Between the two world wars jumps got to be part of airshows. After World War II, it became a hobby. Raymond Young called ...

The Thrill Of The Hunt: What To Wear?

the thrill of hunting photo

Last week in The Thrill of the Hunt we discussed the basics of bowhunting equipment.  This week we will discuss what to wear while bowhunting.   Bowhunting in the fall can provide some serious gear outfitting issues.  It can rain, snow, and be 90 degrees all in a manner of days.  Generally speaking it can be cold in the morning, hot in the afternoon, and cold again as soon as the sun goes down. If your like me you leave the pickup before daylight and return to the pickup in the dark.  That means you must carry warm, cold, and rain gear all day long. The most important thing about bowhunting clothing is that it must be quiet. Nothing will ruin a hunt faster than ...

Let’s get started: When I was in high school, I had a crummy job at a laundromat that didn’t pay very much and it forced me to learn how to budget.

Caving can be pursued as a hobby, a sport or means to conduct scientific research. While some cavers undertake caving for scientific purposes, there are many cavers who are engaged in cave photography. While in the developed nations, most of the accessible caves have been explored, there still lie some unexplored regions of Earth waiting to be dug.

When I was 20, all I cared about was partying. I didn’t do meth or heroin, but I did everything else. I flunked out of college in Missoula quickly and moved to Livingston, Montana with a girl and tried to get my shit together. I worked a few different jobs and stopped the hard stuff, but I was unhappy. I was bored. I wondered if this was what I had to look forward to in life. 40-50 hours per week at a job I hated, a dick boss, a tiny apartment, and a dying car. No motivation, no time or money, no fun.

How to Catch Bass All Summer Long

tts exclusive photo

Catching largemouth bass during summer months can be one of the most exciting fishing experiences anglers have all year. Warm water conditions increase a bass’s metabolism, which causes it to feed more often. Bass are also very predictable in warm water conditions. With the lack of weather fronts that lead to frequent water temperature changes, bass stabilize and become comfortable in the same areas. Though bass are easiest to catch in the summer months, remember the following key factors to ensure success: know their location and determine their food source. Where to Find Them To locate summer bass, you need to determine a lake’s composition.

My friend Corey B and I came up with a brilliant idea back in 2002. We were sitting around drinking beer and watching sports while reading the bottom headlines cross the tv. We kept seeing sports stars getting arrested for doing dumb ass things. Driving either drunk or high with girlfriends or escorts seemed to come up often. We kept coming up with the same question, “WHY?” Why are you driving drunk or high at fast speeds down the freeway? Why are you driving drunk or high with your “friend” who happens to be a “girl” while your wife is at home with the kids? Why would someone with the amount of money you have not get a cab?

Poetry of Pain – Hello Pain!

The Journey—Step 1- Hello PAIN Hauled in by my friends from the court, still sweaty, still in my uniform hair still tussled in a player’s ponytail; time really meant nothing. I guess I was admitted, I think maybe I signed forms, people talked to me…. I didn’t hear. Eventually into a room. Doctors and nurses moved all around me like little worker bees at a nest in summer. Coming and going from my hospital bed. Coming and going. Coming and going. Some came in and looked at my legs, some came in with charts and x-rays, some came in and spoke… still I heard nothing. Some just came in and smiled like they knew something I didn’t, pity not quite well enough masked. It was ...

The Thrilling Sport Of Ice Climbing

sports photo

Ice can be dangerous. If danger puts you in your element, then ice climbing is a sport that you would love. The risks are many but the rush of adrenaline as you scale ice and the joy of reaching the top make the risks worth it. Ice climbing branched out from mountaineering when people started taking bigger risks. Ice climbing wasn’t looked at as a sport before, it was mainly a discipline that was a part of mountaineering. If scaling ice sounds easy to you, I must warn you the devil is in the detail. Image credit: “Eisklettern kl engstligenfall” by Bernhard – Own work. History Ice climbing traces its roots in the history of 19th century European mountaineering. Ice climbing evolved when Laurent Grivel created ...

Poetry of Pain- An Athletes Fall and Quest for Redemption

Special thank you to U.K. athlete, photographer and beautiful person Klare Wolf for allowing us to take this journey with her!  Klare is writing this story, with much prodding by myself and with great apprehension; always consternation and I dare say moments of dread.   You will learn that she is not talking about moments long past, these are not scars well healed by time, she is living the story she tells daily, while she is sharing it will all of us.  Personally I think this takes amazing courage and I hope you’ll honor her by following her tale as it unfolds.  She truly deserves your support.  Stumbling Otis– TTS content manager Volume 1- The Fall Overtime… The fourth quarter had been called – overtime added. ...

Blue Marlin Fishing – The Ultimate Catch

sports photo

History Blue marlin are considered one of the world’s biggest game fish.  Fully grown fish surpass 150 kilograms (330 lb). It is worth noting that females have the ability of reaching far bigger sizes than males, passing 1,000 pounds (450 kg). A Pacific blue marlin, documented in 1970 to be weighing 1,805 pounds (819 kg), was caught by a group of fishermen out of Oahu, Hawaii. Vast blue marlin have customarily been amongst the most profoundly prized catches, with a fish weighing 1,000 pounds (or 450 kg). This weight is noted by blue and black marlin fishermen as the benchmark for a genuinely remarkable catch. Today, much exertion is coordinated towards focusing on the huge blue marlin. Atlantic blue marlin Blue marlin can be found ...

The Art Of Slow Stalking

sports photo

Up to this point we have been discussing hunting in general terms. Now it is time to dig deeper and fine-tune our skills. The old saying goes 10% of hunters kill 90% of the game. One of the skills that this elite group of hunters must be proficient at is stalking. No matter what type of hunting you are doing at some point you will have to stalk your game. Stalking game correctly and effectively is an art form that takes years of practice. Overview I don’t know how many times I have heard hunters say, “Wow, what a long day! We must have walked 10 miles.” My response is always the same. Why? Why in the hell would you walk 10 miles? If your ...

What We Learned About The CFPR Committee

sports photo

So unless you don’t like college football or don’t like sports at all, you probably had an opinion about the first rankings of the College Football Playoff Rankings (CFPR). If you live in South Carolina, Louisiana, Ohio or Alabama, then you were very pleased with the rankings. I am sure there was some grumblings in Ohio, but overall agreement that it could be a good reflection. So what did we learn about the group selecting the teams. Here are some observations about them: They pay way to much attention to the AP 25 while ignoring it simultaneously. To place Alabama in the top four and Norte Dame knocking on the door is acknowledging that AP Top 25 rankings have meaning. They based it on who ...

NBA Season 2015 – 2016

sports photo

The 2015-2016 NBA season has kicked off and boy, I am not excited. I love playing basketball, I love college basketball, but I just don’t care for the NBA. Well that is not exactly true, I care about 2:00 minutes left in the fourth quarter of a close game, but I don’t care how we got there for the past 46 minutes of basketball. The really sad thing is I used to enjoy watching NBA basketball. In the late 80’s and 90’s, basketball was the best team sport around. They played together, the ran plays for each other, they moved, they hustled; they played defense all as one symbiotic unit. It was a beautiful thing to watch. That is why college basketball is still fun ...

MLB Players Wearing Snow Goggles Before Celebrating Victory

sports photo

MLB teams have taken to wearing snow goggles during playoff celebrations to protect their eyes from flying champagne corks. This goggle wearing trend was started by the Baltimore Orioles after their defeat of the Toronto Blue Jays. It seems every winning team in the playoffs has adopted this trend. Players are wearing a variety of different brands of snow goggles including models from Oakley, Nike, and Under Armor. If players are not already endorsed by these companies to wear their goggles, they will soon will be receiving handsome checks. Expect the entire team to be wearing the same brand of snow goggles before the World Series is over. This trend would make players from earlier eras cringe with embarrassment. What would Ty Cobb or Babe ...

The Thrill Of Sports: Baseball Playoff Thoughts

the thrill of sports photo

I must have missed the memo that was sent out to everyone this year about the playoffs. If you got it, would you please forward it to me. I guess someone had the wrong home address, wrong email address, or the wrong fax machine number. The memo must have informed us all about the playoffs being played in the lunch hour/afternoon (depending on where you live) and why. Look I plan my year around sports watching as much as possible and the NCAA tournament has my morning, lunch and afternoon times covered for the year. Most of us work a job that A.) Doesn’t allow us to access the games on our computer or B.) Makes it blatantly obvious when we are watching it on ...

The NFL Arrest Streak Now Stands at 80 Months

the thrill of sports photo

In sports, there are legendary streaks that were accomplished by great players and admired by everyone. However, there are also streaks that are quite embarrassing and somewhat hilarious. The NFL has a very bad streak of football players getting arrested by the authorities and the record stands at 80 months. Yes, this is not a joke. NFL players have a streak of arrests that has been going on for 80 months straight. It sounds pretty outrageous but the NFL seems to be doing a good job in keeping this streak alive and well since 2009. NFL players can’t seem to shake off this crazy streak of getting arrested. One of the most popular arrests was quarterback JaMarcus Russel who was charged for the possession of ...

Baseball Playoffs

the thrill of sports pic

Begrudgingly enough, we are going to take a break from football for the next couple of weeks. We are going to talk about the only time of season to watch baseball on your TV: Playoff time. I enjoy baseball at the stadiums but to sit at home and watch a game on TV just screams beer belly and most likely a significant other yelling out you. Baseball is meant to be watched live or during playoff time. So since the NL playoffs are set. Let’s make some fun prediction about who advances and who goes home just a week after everyone else did. Wild Card Round Pit vs Cubs in a one game showdown to see who advances. I wish somehow this game was to ...

Week #1 Recap

fantasy football blog photo

The regular season is finally underway and the first week is in the books. Some of the things that happened were expected and some of the things that happened in the first week defied logic. What can a fantasy football player take away from the first week? Short answer, nothing. One week is not a proper gauge to make any rash decisions. Do not panic! Relax and do not put much emphasis on what happened in first week. As the season progresses and certainly by week six patterns will start to evolve and we can start making rational decisions based on fact and trends. In the first game of the season all teams are a work in progress. Players are getting to know their new ...

After The Draft

Thrill of Sports photo

On Saturday NFL teams had to cut down to a 53-man rooster. However that does not mean that most teams have finalized their roosters. Deals will be made throughout the week that can still impact teams significantly. This must be a horribly nerve wracking process for players on the bubble. How awful would it be to make the 53-man rooster and still be cut after the Saturday deadline. Ouch! Generally speaking most leagues have probably completed their drafts by this point in the season. However, don’t think for a second that you are done looking at the league and how the transactions over the next couple of days will affect your fantasy team. A player that gets cut from one team, may get picked up ...

Educated Drafting

thrill of sports photo

Tis the season for fantasy football drafting. At this point in the preseason you have already drafted or for the bulk of us you will be drafting very soon. I am sure you are bombarded with stats and articles about whom to draft and who not to draft. Mainly what you are looking at are history or predictions and neither of them are really worth the paper they are written on. Just because a player scored a lot of fantasy points last year doesn’t mean they will score a lot of points this year. Predictions are great, but they are really just educated guesses. To add injury to insult in a draft you will not get all the players you are hoping to add to ...

ESPYs

thrill of sports photo

I love sports. I love watching sports, I love playing sports, I love sports stories, I love sports fans (most of them, actually the more realistic ones rather than the unrealistic ones i.e. see most Raider fans, most New York and Boston Fans and any SEC football fan.) As I sit here and watch the ESPYs I have been choked up at least twice. Once for the Lauren Hill story. If you didn’t watch it, do it. If it doesn’t get you choked up a bit you are either: A. A cold hearted person, B. Never participated in any group activity or C. Dead. Having said all that, then why am I so irked at the ESPYs this year? Oh yeah, now I remember! Because ...

US Open Recap: If Jason Day would have somehow come through and won the US Open after having a share of the lead going into Sunday, it might have been referenced every time in this column from now until I missed my picks for the The Open. Great efforts J. Day. You are my new favorite golfer. But I really feel bad and yet don’t feel bad for Dustin Johnson. I feel bad because no one wants to three putt, especially since the first put was to win & the second putt was to force a playoff. He had not three putted all day. Man that was brutal! Now if you believe the stories that he was banging tour player’s wives, hopped up on coke and still managed ...

Fixing Tiger and Betting the Odds

the thrill of sports photo

Golf, what a funny game. You chase a white ball that you hit around a beautiful green course that usually makes any person that has a lawn at home jealous. You can be in sand, water, trees, desert (depending where you live) sun, wind, rain and most likely, some sort of alcoholic drink. Adding these factors up, minus the wind and rain, and you had a fun day of golf. I play golf; I would play 5 days a week if I could. I play for the score, I play for the gambling (why worry about the score when you got $20 on a putt), I play to hang out with the fella’s and get away from life for a while. And that is where ...

The Thrill Of Sports – Why the NBA Finals are so bad!

the thrill of sports photo

Why are the finals so bad this year? Anyone who says that these NBA finals are great this year must live in Cleveland, the Bay Area or would enjoy watching 30 and over softball as a past time. I mean come on, these are professionals we are watching and they are playing like elementary kids during rec. season. How many more times do I need to watch LeBron James slowly bring the ball up, pass it, run to the block, wait for the pass back, while four other players just stand around? At least Mozgov and Dellavedova are willing to try and get involved and take a shot. JR Smith, Triston Thompson, James Jones pass the ball around like it was a positive pregnancy test. ...
