Inexpensive Sports


I am a huge sports nut, I breathe, eat, sleep sports and the only channels I really watch are Sportscenter and market news. What got me thinking about this topic was playing golf the other day. Normally at the course I play at I get a pretty nice student discount and play for about $14, but the other day 3 buddies and I went to a new course about 30 minutes away. As it turned out the greens fees there were like $36. I could not believe it, especially since the course was not really all that nice to begin with. As I hacked my way around the course, shrewdly calculating how much each hole was costing me, I began to think about inexpensive leisure activities. Below are some of the ones I came up with, let me know if you have some other ideas:



  • Riding bikes. Obviously it is free to ride, but there is an initial expenditure required in either purchasing or renting a bike, all the more reason to borrow one from a friend/relative

  • Shooting hoops, throwing a football/baseball/frisbee,etc. These are very low cost activities (buying the ball or even just borrowing it from a friend). Good way to get outside and have some fun

  • Hiking. Can't get much more free than this, the only expenses I can think of would be when you want to go to a national park or forest and then you would end up paying some entrance fee

  • Bowling. Pretty cheap (even after having to rent the clown shoes) and some good old school fun

Some of the pricier ones:



  • Golf. This all depends on where you go (wanna play the courses the pros do, then fork over the bucks). Most public courses are reasonable though for the occasional round

  • Ice Skating. Not terribly expensive but do need to factor in renting the skates and purchasing an ice ticket

  • Water sports (Jet skiing, Water skiing, wake boarding, etc). All a ton of fun, but a little expensive by the time you hire someone take you out in a boat

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin to get real income.
It gets down to choose a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
