    New Orleans Sports & Outdoors

    We attended the New Orleans Saints-Houston Texans game on September 25th, 2011, in which the Saints won an exciting come-from-behind game 40-33.

    Toronto Sports & Outdoors

    A fun thing to do in the winter in Toronto is going skating on one of the outside skating rinks. This one I saw at the Toronto Harbour. Wow, it was so busy, but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves a lot. There is some music playing to add to the atmosphere :-) The skating rink is open 7 days a week, 10 a.m.- 10 p.m., weather permitting of course...

    Puerto Vallarta Sports & Outdoors

    Snorkeling at Los Arcos, Baya Banderas, was a lot of fun, although colder than we had expected. We had no exposure suit, so we didn't stay in as long as we might have otherwise. Los Arcos is a wave-formed rock formation near Mismaloya. The rocks are a federal eco-preserve and named after the arching grottoes channeling through some of the rocks....

    Tijuana Sports & Outdoors

    I know there are alot of people that dont like the bullfights but I do. They are held mostly on Sundays and it is a brutal sport. It isnt for some people. The corridas go from around April to October. Prices are from around $8 to $45. I also recommend you bring a pillow because the seats are somewhat unconfortable. They also sell a cushion for you...

    Honolulu Sports & Outdoors

    The Pro Bowl itself was great fun. Even though I'm not a big football fan, I do watch and so it was thrilling to watch Peyton Manning and Tom Brady warming up side by side, throwing to recievers, or to see T.O. running by and making everyone cheer everytime he came in sight. My daughter and her friends had a blast performing at halftime and...

    I would be remiss if I did not pay homage to my childhood heroes of the 80's, the University of Miami Hurricanes Football program. During my time in Miami, I can remember a few games at the Orange Bowl. It is a unique experience in that when the crowd gets riled up, you can feel the stadium literally move. It is safe and sturdy, however it is a...

    Ottawa Sports & Outdoors

    Truly the most absurdly located NHL building imaginable - at the extreme west end of Ottawa beyond the suburbs. Why? When most new arenas were being constructed in city centres during the 1990s, Ottawa's new arena was not following suit. I believe the biggest reason for this was to be more than 120 miles from the Bell Centre in Montreal. I hope in...

After the game, many of the fans head up the nearby...
