Prices Plummet For Super Bowl Tickets

 

 

Super Bowl Ticket Prices

 

 

 

” Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history.

  However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive.

  On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league’s official resale site. That’s $409 cheaper than it was on the site with this many days left last year and $809 cheaper than the year before. 

  Since the conference championship games ended, ticket prices have steadily plummeted. The get-in price on the NFL Ticket Exchange was $2,700 on Monday.”

5 Big Game Rifle Rounds… For Beginners (Videos)

 

.30-30 Win

 

 

” Though in our minds big game season seems so close that we can taste it, the truth is there is still ample time for would-be sportsmen to dust off their deer rifles and get into the hunt so to speak. This invitation is especially directed towards the younger or beginning hunters, who I’m sure are filled with hunting questions, the most obvious being,what caliber rifle do I get?

While hard, long and flat rounds like the .30-06 and .308 appear to dominate the North American hunting rifle scene and even the popular .223 is making a name for itself as a surprisingly capable deer round, these cartridges are not really the best choice for someone who has never stalked whitetails before, let alone shot a gun. So what do you get the fledgling deer hunter who is looking for a rifle to start off with? A caliber that will get the job done with ‘minute of deer’ accuracy but also won’t send the shooter running back to the cabin with a sore shoulder once the gun goes off.

Well, there are actually quite a few choices out there with such a proven history:”

Fly-Fishing History: Video Profiles of IGFA Hall of Fame Members

 

 

 

 

 

” I was poking around on Youtube, and quite by accident I stumbled across this very cool series of video profiles created by the International game Fish Association. Each one is a short biography of an angler who has been inducted into the IGFA Hall of Fame, and there are plenty of fly fishermen (and -women) in the mix. Here are a few that I grabbed from the long list. You can check out the whole series on the IGFA’s YouTube channel. “

We Compare 14 Soft-Sided Tackle-Storage Systems That Make Carrying Gear A Snap

 

tackle boxes

 

” Do you remember your first tackle box? I remember mine. It was a battered, old, Army-green metal box passed down from my father. It had a single metal latch on the lid, a thin, bent-wire handle and three rickety, fold-out trays. It wasn’t pretty — but it served me well, toting what few lures I owned safely back and forth to the water.
Things have a way of changing over time, though. Today, metal boxes are a thing of the past. And while the hard-shell, molded-plastic tackle box that took its place is still used by many anglers, fishermen are turning more often to soft-sided tackle-storage systems.
There are many compelling reasons why “
