TebowTim Tebow has been in and out of news headlines ever since his football career began at the University of Florida in 2006. After Tebow was let go from the New England Patriots at the end of August, these headlines have all pertained to his free agent status.

Tebow first made the news for being an outspoken Christian, but what later became known as Tebowing was the cause of the media frenzy surrounding him. Tebowing refers to the act of kneeling on one knee in prayer, with one’s head resting on one’s fist, which Tebow often did.

Workout DrinksCoffee, smoothies, and energy drinks. These are just some of the energy-boosting drinks that are being sold in the market today. The array of choices has been growing so much, but how much do you really need when you’re exercising? But the first question you have to answer is—how long do you exercise? If it’s just an hour or less, water will be just fine. If it’s longer than that, or if’s hot and humid outside, then Dr. Pamela Nisevich Bede from Runners World recommends drinking extra calories and electrolytes that are contained in sports drinks.

The great migration to college campuses is beginning to occur and that can only mean one thing: it’s almost time for college football. Whether you’re still living the college life, enjoying your alumni status, or just a big fan, this is the time that we have all been waiting for. Everyone can get into the tailgating spirit, and I certainly plan to this fall. Here are three of my favorite spots to soak up the atmosphere.

1. Michigan State University

One of the largest universities in the nation, MSU is absolutely beautiful in the fall. The iconic Red Cedar that runs through campus may not be hygienic, but it is a lovely sight as the leaves begin to change colors. Spartan fans are also among the rowdiest, yet most hospitable. No matter where you park on campus, you’re sure to make some great friends.  Continue reading “My 3 Favorite Universities for Tailgating” »

Throughout the years of the game, there have been many intense rivalries leading up to who would be declared the current greatest male tennis player in the world.

Dog Agility Competitions: A List of Obstacles

Posted by Mikalah On October - 17 - 2012ADD COMMENTS

When we think of typical competitions involving dogs, we often think of dog shows where dogs are judged based on physical appearance. There are, however, competitions where agility, strength, intelligence and obedience are the key areas being judged. These attributes are essential in competitions known as dog agility competitions. In this type of competition, the dog handler must guide their dog through an obstacle course using gesture and voice commands alone. If dog health in increased through dog supplements (I recommend www.silverliningherbs.com), their physical performance may be enhanced. They are not allowed to touch the obstacles or the dog and must remain by the dog’s side in order to properly guide him through the course. This requires a high level of endurance on both parts and a high level of obedience and intelligence of the dog. The owner must exhibit patience and a high level of trust with their canine companion.
