The average cost of a family of four or a group of friends to go to college football game can be difficult to calculate, as expenses vary widely. Costs to consider are of course the tickets themselves, then parking, concession stand costs and finally funds leftover if you want any souvenirs (like a t-shirt with your favorite team's logo).
There are tons of things to consider when attending an NFL game. Some of which include buying tickets, food and drink, parking, and tailgating just to name a few. The experience of actually being at an NFL game can be eye-opening and pretty amazing. The first time I went to a Dallas Cowboy's home game I was blown away by just how big the spectacle really was.

This is the second time these two hard headed fighters will meet. And there's no denying that "hard headed" is the way to put it. Both have a history of loud-mouth antics, trash talking, and most of off, actually backing it up.The last time these two met was really just by chance. McGregor was set to fight another when they backed out from injury.
The NFC East, also known as the most interesting division in all of football. Okay, I am biased, being from Dallas and all. Even still, it's a division totally up for grabs, and 3 of the 4 teams should look completely different this time around. For a division that turned in 3 losing records in the 2015 season, I see that totally flip flopping for the 2016-17 season.
How fast can a human possibly run? Recently, there has been much debate about it amongst sports fans, as well as scientists. Some believe that no one can run faster than 28 miles per hour, that’s because the man who can run that fast, is a six-time Olympic Gold medalist. His name is Usain Bolt (gottta love that last name), and he is also known as “The Fastest Man on Earth”.
From the very, very start of the Summer Olympic games, the one in Berlin in 1936, Team USA has just owned everyone in basketball, on both the men's and women's side. There have been 18 summer Olympics since that time, and Team USA men's basketball has won the gold 14 of those 18 times. That's about 78% of the time. After this Olympics in Rio, it'll undoubtedly be 15/19.
In 2006, the Olympic committee changed the way Gymnastic events were scored. And with that change, they basically drew a line in the history books, making it virtually impossible to compare any future performance with it's historical counterpart.It used to be so easy. The Perfect 10 was the aim of the game. 10.0. Simple.
To watch or stream any Rio Olympic event or sport, you're covered with this entry. Included is a full breakdown of all the NBC Universal TV and Online Streaming options.But to be honest, they are cumbersome to comb through, and difficult to use on there own, especially when looking for something particular. Not to mention full of spoilers.
If there is one sport where American's consistently dominate at the Olympic Games it is swimming. Both the men's and women's teams have dominated the medal count since the 1984 Olympics and this year looks to be no different. In fact, the only time both teams didn't win the medal count was when the women lost to Australia by one medal in the 2004 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.
Would you swim in water that has been described as toxic? Would you take a row boat into sewage? How about go sailing in a fecal matter infested ocean? Might you kayak or canoe your way through a super-bacteria filled sea?Olympians at Rio are braver than I.
One word that is arguable the most synonymous with summer, is baseball. Mystery meat hot dogs are flung to sweaty folks in the stands, and overpriced beer is guzzled by the pint, in an attempt to stave off the radioactive heat waves. The Chicago Cubs are leading the NL Central, currently.
This year's All Star game is stacked with pros. Just as it was last year and the year before. This is the best time of year for Major League Baseball, for me personally. Along with the ASG, you have the Home Run Derby and Old Timers, which are always a blast. This is the best location for the full schedule of events. I have yet to ever be lucky enough to attend either match.

So someone had the bright idea to chain up a jaguar so the Olympic torch holders could pose with it for pictures. It being the Brazilian Olympic's team mascot is a jaguar named Ginga. What could go wrong.... Well one dead near-extinct animal (for an idiotic reason), and a horrible and ironic start for Rio.Supposedly the animal escaped handlers.

'Sometimes par is good enough to win.' Cheech Marin's Romeo from 'Tin Cup' had it right.Or did he?Fitting that film centers around Costner's Roy McAvoy finding redemption at the US Open. A smart move by the screenwriter. Par can certainly be good enough to win at a 70-par course, the lowest and most notoriously difficult of all majors.
Athletes have been expressing concerns of the zika virus at the summer Olympics. Now even journalists are starting to back out and not go at all. And I don't blame them a bit. I really hate to say it, but am going to be completely honest here. I sense something very bad boiling over during the Olympics.
What started out as a joke in the 1930s, soon became a household word. In reference to teams in small town America, professional baseball players would say they were “growing players down on the farm like corn,” hence the word “Farm System”. It goes by many names: farm system, farm club and farm team(s).
The Indianapolis 500 has been an American tradition for over a century. It is synonymous with Memorial Day, open-wheel cars, pork tenderloin sandwiches, the curse of peanuts, Florence Henderson, Jim Nabors and an ice cold bottle of milk. How do they all come together to make up one of the most attended sporting events in America, you ask? Well, it’s a long story.It was 1909.
In the world of tennis, it all comes down to what the court's surface is made of.This is a quick thought experiment into why the French Open's court surface makes it the most psychically (and psychologically) demanding of all the major Grand Slam tournaments.
Roughly half of all thoroughbreds that have won the Kentucky Derby in the 21st century went on to win the Preakness Stakes. Most of the time with ease. And yet these same horses routinely fail at winning the last leg of the triple crown at Belmont.
On an icy night in 1905, a player of the championship hockey team of Ottawa drop-kicked the Stanley Cup into the Rideau Canal while celebrating. The cup clanked onto the canal's icy surface and skidded off into the night, only to be recovered the next morning. It was once officially named the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, but later became known as the Stanley Cup.

But every year, there are always those few companies that push the envelope, and get the infamous stamp of 'banned' for their efforts.

I think the stupidest rule change in the NFL was moving the extra point back. It adds no value to the game. People get excited about blocking, scrambling, running & passing and the work required to get a score.It's like all this skill and excitement to score 6 points and then just some mundane zero excitement single point try.Just watch.

One could argue that the hardest feat in all of competitive sports is to win a Grand Slam in the sport of tennis, and that is the argument I'm going for in this blog. Here's why.The Australian Open, The French Open, Wimbledon, and The U.S. Open - a tennis player has to win all four of these events in the same category in the same calendar year, to log just one Grand Slam.
It's called the "Test of Champions" for a horse to win all three legs of the Triple Crown. A test so hard in fact that it's only happened really three times under the current formatting (or lack thereof) of the 3-leg event: the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. That was in 1948, 1977, and then 1978. Hasn't happened since.

Included below is the full card of Saturday's event (both televised and not), with the start times, and most importantly when and how best to watch.
At one point golf was gaining popularity extremely fast. It's safe to say now that the dust has settled, and it's looking very bleak for the sport. Over the past few years the sport has teetered on a tightrope as to if it will take a dive or not. There's no denying the it has become way too expensive to keep as a daily practice. All you need for most other sports is two legs and ball.
The Sweet Sixteen lineup is set, and it looks somewhat different than many expected. With top seeds Villanova, Kansas and Virginia out early, spots instead were filled by the likes of NC State, Wichita State and Michigan State. Most pundits and brackets' favorite, the Kentucky Wildcats, are still in the action and going strong, but a West Virginia match-up will be their toughest go yet.
NCAA's Selection Sunday results are finally in.
March Madness is just around the corner. And with 68 teams making it into the NCAA tournament, it's always an event to see just what teams make it in. 32 of the 68 entries get automatic bids, by winning their respective conference tournaments that are held just before Selection Sunday.

The Pac 12 tournament is on it's way to Las Vegas this weekend at the MGM Grand Arena, Thursday, March 11th. Who will be victorious? I guess we will have to wait and see.

Since 1939, only 8 teams have won the NCAA Tournament Championship and then gone on to not even qualify for the tournament the following season. Only 8 teams in tournament history, some 76 March Madness'. So it's rare, but does happen from time to time.
For the Mountain West Conference's lack of teams with superpower school status (like Kentucky, Duke or Michigan to name a few), the collective certainly does a fantastic job finding itself represented well every year in the NCAA Tournament.
The Big Ten has had an up and down year in college basketball, but the conference does seem to be ever so slightly on the rise after a slow start to the season.
The NFL franchise tag was set into place by the league to allow for teams to hold on to one of their top talents. Usually a top-flight player gets saddled with a franchise tag if the team needs some more time to negotiate a long term contract with the player, or to buy some time so that the team's salary cap issues get better settled from prior year commitments still on the books.
After a new qualifying format was introduced this year, there was a majority of drivers left upset. The issue was the new group qualifying instead of the traditional single car on track. In my mind there is no doubt this was a mistake. The qualifying lap needs to be a time of 100% focus on the track and speed.
It's official! Manny Pacquiao will fight Floyd Mayweather on May 2nd. I'm shocked that this is actually happening. Shocked and extremely excited. Anyone who knows me, knows I dislike Mayweather and sincerely hope Pac man shows him the door to a loss. There are plenty of people that disagree with me though.
As a young child, I remember the NBA Slam Dunk Contest being one of my favorite sporting events of the year. One of my most vivid memories as a youngster is when I watched Michael 'Air' Jordan seemingly fly from the free-throw line, his legs spreading in that now iconic image, and slamming the ball through the hoop.And just like that, I was hooked.
The Men's Division 1 Basketball Championship, better known as the NCAA Tournament, March Madness, or 'The Big Dance', is the absolute pinnacle of college basketball. It's the event that makes college basketball one of the most intriguing and talked about sports in not just college athletics, but in the sport's world at large.
For me, this was geared up to be the very best year for Super Bowl commercials to date. After seeing several sneak peaks of what was in store I was more than excited. After all, the best part of watching the game is getting to laugh a lot in between the seriousness of the sport. I will say I was not disappointed at all. Once the game got rolling the ads starting coming in left an right.
How much money does the winning team of the Superbowl 49 take home for players? Well, looks like this year each player of the winning side will take home an extra 97,000 dollars. While the opposing team players will get a guaranteed take home of 49,000.

The most successful NFL franchise of the last decade gets a lot of push back for being cheats. Yep, the New England Patriots always seem to be in some situation that makes you think that Belichick and company are up to no good.
So there's been an NFL scouting combine for decades now. But that's just been for the young players; the newbs without any professional experience. There's never been one for the vets that have actual NFL experience, but have been out of the game for a year, two or more. But now, as of the 2015 off season, there will be.
The UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones recently tested positive for cocaine. After the test had conclusive results the fighter spent only one day in rehab to, "cure" himself. I do not understand how this is possible. And I'm not speaking on just the usage of the drugs. I am confused as to how the league would keep his last few fights as wins without question.
