This winter season keep your home sports-friendly. Pintereset


For sports fans and lovers, winter can be a tough season. It often means that you have to put on pause your love of playing the game, as it’s not always easy to get outdoors and play – depending on the sport, of course. But does that means that sports have to come to a hard stop in the home until spring? Not at all, there are all kinds of ways to make your home more sports-friendly this winter and help feed your passion for the game.

Let’s take a look at some of the things you can do to keep sports alive in your home this winter.

Subscribe to the Top Sports Television or Streaming Service

One of the first things you can do is subscribe to the top sports networks on television, or if you prefer, look into sports streaming services. These networks and services offer sports programming 24/7 so you’ll never be without a game or action. If you have a couple of favorite sports, you can make your selection based on those favorites.

This type of programming also tends to have a lot of commentary between games, which can also be fun and provide a more in-depth look at your favorite sports, teams, and players.

Start Collecting Sports Memorabilia

Winter can also be a great time to shift your focus to your sports memorabilia collection. If you don’t currently have one, why not use this winter to start one. There are so many different types of items to collect which will allow you to really personalize your private collection and make it even more fun.

Don’t forget if you’re going to start collecting sports memorabilia, you’re also going to need to think about display and storage. This will likely take some time to plan and set-up, but once completed it gives you a way to show off your collection and keep it safe at the same time.

Get Yourself Professional Grade Equipment

Of course, you can’t have a sports-friendly home without professional-grade equipment on-hand for use. This can include the basics for the sport as well as the extras that make it easier to practice and play.

If baseball is your game of choice, it would be wise to look into a pitching machine, such as the top of the line machines on this site, which would allow you to practice your swing all winter long. You don’t even need someone else around to help you practice. Pitching machines such as these are able to pitch at various speeds, just like in a real game, so it gives you a chance to better read the ball and your swing.

Once the weather gets too cold and yucky to be outdoors, look for gear that can be used inside like golf putting green to help you stay on top of your swing.

Make It a Habit to Get Together with Friends to Play

The long cold months of winter can often cause a sense of isolation, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Why not set up a schedule with a group of friends who share your love of sports, and then get together for a pick-up game. It’s not meant to be serious or super-competitive, it’s just a great way to get together with friends, take part in the sport you all love, and get some physical activity.

Winter Doesn’t Have to be a Hard Stop on Sports

Just because the winter months are here, your love of all things sports don’t need to take a backseat. In fact, it’s quite the opposite as this can be the perfect time to switch up your focus and feed your passion in different ways all in a sport-friendly manner.

Doris Lessing who won a Nobel Prize in Literature

London (CNN)- At five o'clock in the morning, the esteemed 86-year-old astrophysicist Jim Peebles was woken suddenly by the telephone ringing.

"In previous experience, the only phone calls at that time of night are bad news," he said. This one was great news. "The opening sentence from the caller was: 'The Nobel committee has voted to award you the Nobel Prize in Physics. Do you accept?'" Peebles recalled. The wording threw him. Who wouldn't accept a Nobel Prize? "You know the Bob Dylan fiasco?" he said during a phone interview with CNN. "That might have put the wind up them."The "fiasco" Peebles mentions refers to the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was controversially given to an utterly unimpressed Dylan.Aside from being ever-presents on college campuses in the 1960s, little connects Peebles, an expert in theoretical cosmology, with Dylan. But one of the starkest contrasts might lie in their reactions to winning a Nobel -- and the songwriter is far from the only laureate whose crowning turned out to be an awkward affair.

The five committees are notoriously secretive, fiercely shielding their choices from the outside world -- including the laureates themselves, who are told of their victories just minutes before they are announced to the public.

Sindoor implies the longevity of a woman's marriage to her husband in the Hindu tradition

Married Hindu women are recognised by a red streak of vermillion in the middle of their foreheads. This is traditionally called 'sindoor', which is derived from the Sanskrit word sindura, meaning 'red lead.'. Sindoor is traditionally powdered turmeric and lime, sometimes red saffron, or red sandalwood. It is also called vermilion, or Kumkum.
