Sports Office Accessories to Conquer the Workday!

Silence in the office can be maddening, especially when the work is mundane.  The only thing you hear is yourself working and the air conditioner wheezing.  Every twenty minutes your eyes drift away from the desk or the computer screen, and you try to find a distraction that gives you enough energy to finish the day.  Sports are always a good distraction, but you can’t completely put your work to the side and watch a game.  Instead, click here for a more subtle sidetrack!

Since winter has not officially left, check out these awesome desktop gifts!  Here’s your chance to shake up the sports world.  These snow globes feature football and baseball stadium replicas.  The stadiums are painted with team colors and a song plays when it’s tapped.  Shake it up and watch the confetti drop.  These globes will definitely hold your attention long enough to charge your work battery back up, but if it doesn’t, divert your attention to a Personalized Day Planner.  Map your days out from start to finish in a planner that can be customized with your personal details.  These are small distractions to make your day easier!

How fast can you solve it?

For a bigger distraction, look no further than this Desktop Sports Game!  When your boss is not looking, work on your flick shot and become the office’s Kobe Bryant.  A desktop sports game offers an entertaining break from the normal work flow.  The Golf Puzzle Cube is also another great time killer.  Rubik’s Cubes are great brain busters that should make the rest of your office work a breeze.  Both of these items are equally satisfying!

Treat yourself to a fun diversion from the workday!

Fancy Zippo Lighters!

Back in the stone ages, fire was a delicacy and its production was an art form.  Two sticks had to be rubbed together the right way, and a stroke of luck was needed for the spark to flourish.  As technology progressed, lighting a fire became easier than blinking an eye.  At the stroke of a match or the pull of a lighter, fire can be generated on a whim.  Click here to bear witness to the latest!

You’ll need it!

Zippo Lighters are wind resistant and there a bevy of designs available.  Check out a few lighters bedecked with Chinese Symbols.  You have a choice between “Honor” and “Luck”.  Pick a trait that’s significant to your life and light a flame that burns in your favor.  Beyond the artistic side, the lighter is solidly built and performance will not be an issue.  It’s definitely better than rubbing two sticks together.  If Chinese symbols don’t strike your fancy, try your hand at the Harley Davidson Zippo Lighters or the Patriotic Zippo Lighters.  Either is a fine choice!

Take a look at our Pure Zippo Lighters for choice galore!  This collection features a variety of builds.  We have chrome lighters, brass lighters, matte lighters, and much more.  They all have unique and colorful designs with an elegant finish, and sometimes, an engraving.  What more could you ask for in a lighter?

Whether it’s for warmth, light, or a cigarette, our Zippo Lighters should do the trick!

Tricks of the Trade!

Super Bowl XLVII is almost here and fans are itching for their respective teams to win it all!  While the Ravens and 49ers are practicing and building a game plan, the die-hard fans are wearing their lucky shirts and simulating the game in Madden.  Some next level fans might even go so far as to try voodoo.  That’s dedication, but there are other ways.  There are a few tricks that you should stick up your sleeve!

Flag on the play!

Click here and take a look at one your secret weapons!  A referee costume is like sports voodoo.  Wear it, and whenever the opposing team has possession, throw out all kinds of flags.  Blow your whistle to no end, and if you’re bold enough (also if you have tickets) run out on field and take one for the team.  Concentrate hard enough, and you never know, your will might change the tide of the Super Bowl!  Another possible game changer is an electric football game.  Imagine the two sides as the two teams squaring off in the Super Bowl.  Skew the outcome in your favor by a big margin, and deeply believe that a simple game of vibrating football can affect the outcome!

Team specific gifts are a little bit easier!  Check out a nice selection of custom gifts for the San Francisco 49ers fans.  Choose a beer mug or shot glass.  The spirit in which drinking buddies take shots or toast to beer can go a long way.  Toast to the 49ers and push them on to victory.  Any bit of help is appreciated!  Baltimore Ravens fans should try a different route.  They’ve been the underdogs all season, and it’s now time to shock the world.  Try our Baltimore Ravens bedding on for size.  Go to sleep with the team in mind, and wake up in their sheets.  Let Mr. Sandman turn the tables in your favor.  It sounds unconventional, but according to everyone else, the Ravens weren’t supposed to be here in the first place!

Being different is key!  Face paint and foam fingers are not effective anymore.  Think outside the box and find a creative way to show support!

Show Support with a Sports Bracelet!

At every sporting event, you will find a combination of face paint, pom-poms, and jerseys scattered throughout the crowd.  It’s nice to see people rally together for once cause but the sports scene is getting convoluted, and it’s these same thing over and over again in every arena or stadium.  Maybe the fanfare needs to take a subtle shift.  Next home game, go for a slick approach.  Click here and witness the wave of the future!

NCAA sports fans are dedicated!  Alumni and students support their teams to no end, but they’re predictable.  Leave all of the regular fan gear at home.  Don’t wear the team colors or hold up signs.  Instead, only wear a NCAA bracelet, and when it’s time to cheer, have everyone raise his or her wrists to the sky and silence all the cheers.  Check out these cool bracelets, and find your school.  The opposing team and fans won’t know how to respond.  It will be a shock to their system!

Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”

The NFL can use a makeover as well!  Their crowd consists of beefed up face painters and beer chuggers.  Take a look at these football bracelets, and add a secret weapon to your fan arsenal.  It’s deceptive and probably not noticeable at first glance, but as they say in boxing: it’s the one you don’t see that knocks you out.  In honor of Baltimore’s upset over the Broncos, Ravens fans should pick up a bracelet.  Keep the momentum going and prove all of the critics wrong!

Wear a sports bracelet and provide the fan base with a change of pace!

Christmas Gifts for the Los Angeles Lakers!

Yes, the Lakers are struggling and the have no excuse.  Kobe Bryant is one of the best players of all-time and Dwight Howard is the best center in the league.  A team with those two players on the floor should not have a losing record.  The return of Steve Nash and Pau Gasol will help but let’s face it: Nash is old with a bad back, and Pau hasn’t played well since the Lakers championship repeat.  They may not be enough.  As insurance for lack of cohesion, it’s time for these players to work on their weaknesses!

Follow through!!

Dwight Howard, click here and meet the solution to all your problems.  Everyone knows Dwight Howard can’t make a free throw to save his life, but he’s now in luck.  A Franklin Breakaway Hoop can help his form and touch.  The smaller ball and hoop will force Howard to shoot softly.  With hours of dedicated practice, his rotation and touch will be damn near perfect!  Next up is Pau Gasol.  Point blank, he needs to toughen up.  Just like Dwight, Gasol can use the breakaway hoop to improve  his finishing ability.  Going up strong will be easier than ever on a small hoop.  A couple of dunks, fist pumps, and roars, and Pau should be feeling like a true big man again.  His confidence will rise to monumental heights, and the Twin Towers will rise in Los Angeles!

Kobe Bryant’s chore is simple.  Check out his prescription!  Yes, all he needs is a basketball.  He needs to carry this ball with him wherever he goes.  Bed, bathroom, or backyard, he needs to bring this with him wherever he goes, and never lose grip.  He needs to dribble the ball whenever he can and cherish it like a loved one.  Kobe’s turnovers have been way too high this season.  This should fix everything!  As for Steve Nash, our backboard padding will do wonders…for his back.  Instead of attaching the padding to a backboard, have Nash sit or lay on this during the game.  That lower back discomfort will go away in no time!

Not exactly what you thought right?  I bet you expected a proposed trade, lineup change, or new coach (needs to happen).  Teams need to start looking into alternative methods of development.  If it worked for Phil Jackson as a coach, it might work here as well!

Desktop Sports Games for Christmas!

We all dream of hitting that game winning shot or catching the game winning touchdown on the biggest stage, but unfortunately, it’s easier to win the lottery than it is to make the big leagues.  To compensate, dreamers turn to the recreational leagues and video games.  Now they can add another option to the list.  Click here and take a look at a nice selection of Desktop Sports Games!

FROM DOWNTOWN!

In the office or at home, a desktop game comes in handy.  Whether you want to kill time or destroy your buddy’s ego, a sports game is always in order.  Click here and use these games as a starting point for your game room.  Foosball is a game room and arcade classic the whole family can enjoy.  Wind up power shots, defend the goal, and have fun!  That itch needs to be scratched.  Hockey fans took a loss this season with the NHL lockout.  Luckily, Rod Hockey is always in season.  The rods offer intuitive control of the whole team.  It might be the best alternative to the NHL!

The NBA and NFL seasons are in full swing, but a true fan can always find a reason to vent.  Whenever your favorite team hits that inevitable slump, take out a desktop basketball game.  Click here to find most entertaining way to vent.  Work on your jumpshot, and hope that it transfers to your team.  Football fans should take a hard look at Fiki Football.  The flick is an art that dates back to elementary school.  Channel the bored student within, and score at will!

Sports fans need to find constructive ways to take out the frustrations caused by their teams.  Try out a desktop game, and keep the gray hairs from growing!
