October really is the ultimate sports month, isn’t it? I mean, think about it. Football is in full swing, Hockey is just taking off and oh yeah, playoff Baseball! Other stuff happens in October too, like Halloween and Leif Ericson Day. But we all know that the month is really about sports. So you know what we did? We put together a huge selection of sports Halloween costumes and decorations so even when you’re celebrating the other things October has to offer, you can still be focusing on what’s really important.Throughout the month, we’ll be highlighting these cool new twists on the traditional Halloween decorations.
The first products we’re sporting really hit the sweet spot. Inject some college life into your decorations with some College Halloween Pumpkins and College Halloween Pumpkin Candy Bowls!
Made by Cumberland Designs, the Halloween Pumpkins are realistic looking resin pumpkins that emblazon your favorite school’s logo.
The Halloween Pumpkin Candy Bowls are ceramic treat jars that not only contain your favorite candy, but also show off your alma mater/favorite school’s logo prominently on the front. Continue reading “Halloween Gifts: Part 1 – NCAA Halloween Pumpkins and Halloween Pumpkin Candy Bowls”
Today we embark on a new milestone here at The Sporting Goods – our first “Top Rated Product” post. Yes, I agree; it is very emotional indeed. Over time, “Top Rated Product” posts should become a staple on this blog. “What are they?” you ask? “Top Rated Product” posts will be pretty straightforward: they are posts about specific products that have been highly rated by customers who actually purchased the good. Think of it as your fellow peers offering a friendly recommendation of a product you were either unaware of or unsure whether to buy.
This week’s landmark “Top Rated Product” is the Kwik Goal 6 Seat Kwik Bench Soccer Bench (quite the tongue-twister). This Kwik Goal Soccer Bench gives your squad a much needed centralized location to rest, bond, and strategize as one unit while they’re on the sidelines.

Now that summer is over, it’s time to gear up for the cool days ahead. What better way to do so than with The North Face outerwear? At our home site, sportsunlimited.com, we have added a ton of new The North Face products for the Fall 2010 season.
I’d blab on about how great The North Face is, but I think this quote from our newsletter says it best:
“Every year when Fall comes around, people look to The North Face to keep them warm and cozy throughout the cold months. This year, we bring you the best collection of The North Face jackets and outerwear ever, including fleece jackets for toddlers and infants. Whether you are looking for more casual style fleece or a high-performance softshell jacket, The North Face offers you quality and dependability that can’t be beat. Don’t miss out on the best-selling Denali Jacket that delivers that iconic The North Face look for the whole family.”
Boom. Told ya.
The days are getting shorter. The temperature is dropping. The leaves are beginning to change colors. Which can mean only one thing: Mid-September baseball! Now I know that much of the drama has been drained from the pennant race (See the AL Central, AL West and NL Central races for examples). But both the NL and AL East races are still full of excitement, and the NL West, like every year it seems, is a 3-team dead-heat towards the finish line. To top it off, two intense series start tonight; the Braves and Phillies, and the Yankees and Rays.

Tomorrow, the wait finally ends. Football is back and all is well in the world! Thursday, The Minnesota Vikings travel to New Orleans in a rematch of January’s epic NFC Championship Game. To refresh your memory, the Vikings dominated play, but self-induced wounds (fumbles and interceptions) cost them dearly, especially Brett Favre’s inexcusable INT late in the fourth quarter that forced an overtime and eventually sent the Saints to Super Bowl glory.
Tomorrow, the Saints open up the 2010 season as defending champs, while the Vikings seek redemption and revenge for January’s falter.
Check out some pics from that game if your memory is still just a bit fuzzy:

Because of the overall confusion that comes when buying a new baseball bat or softball bat, we decided to try and help simplify the process.
The following is our guide to purchasing baseball bats / softball bats. If you’ve been through this before and have any comments or advice for anyone having difficulty purchasing a bat, feel free to help them out buy commenting at the end of the post.
