Our partner, Upstart Sports, has developed an incredible program that will enable your team or organization to own the wildly popular Sideline Team Shelter with zero impact on your budget. In fact, there’s a good chance it will be cash-positive, meaning you’ll actually MAKE money when it is all said and done. This may be one of the best programs we’ve seen in some time and wanted to pass it along.

And, luckily, we won’t have to long. College offers a full slate on Thursday and then begins wholesale Saturday. The pros wait another week. It is finally that time of the year when there’s a good gridiron contest nearly every day. And don’t forget those boys playing on Friday nights everywhere as well. Hut, hut, HIKE!

Our favorite sports cartoon, In the Bleachers by Steve Moore comes through again with humor…and with a message about parents in today’s sports-obsessed, competitive society. (Courtesy of Go Comics.com).

In a contrast to yesterday’s post where a league shut down due to possible financial mismanagement, this threatened basketball league has gotten a little better news. Nice to see that, in this case, it looks like the kids are going to be able to continue playing.

What happens when a basketball league signs up teams, has them reserve gym time, collects their registration fees, then goes under? Hopefully there will be an equitable resolution to this story.
