Creeking – The Perfect Sport For Adrenaline Junkies

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 ...

Boning Your Animal In The Field

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 ...

Monster Trucks – Extremity Personified

Monsters are vehement and trucks can be intimidating huge. Put the two together and you have a machine that can make you feel like hell broke loose. Monster trucks are styled after the bodies of the pick-up trucks with humongous wheels and suspension. These trucks are often seen as car crushing machines and are popular for sports entertainment and competitions. As popularity increases, the extremities of monster trucks keep on increasing and competitions involving monster trucks have now started ending with freestyle events. As monster truck drivers continue to push the limits, the number of fatalities and injuries keep on rising as well. This is a sport that involves great risk. History Modified pick-up trucks were becoming popular during the 1970s. Bob Chandler who had ...

The Extreme Sport Of BASE Jumping

BASE Jumping or B.A.S.E. Jumping is an extreme sport that involves parachuting or wingsuit flying from a fixed point, usually a high structure of a cliff.

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.

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.

High completion percentage, low interceptions, can throw deep with accuracy, capable of 4 touchdowns and 350 yards a game. Basically if you are playing against him in fantasy football, you feel you could have a 50-50 chance of winning. Runner UP: Randal Cunningham.

We kept coming up with the same question, “WHY?” Why are you driving drunk or high at fast speeds down the freeway?

The Thrilling Sport Of Ice Climbing

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.

Blue Marlin Fishing – The Ultimate Catch

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 ...

NBA Season 2015 – 2016

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.

After The Draft

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.
