With the holiday season upon us, here are a few ideas for the sports fan in your life.
All I've asked for this Christmas is anything that has to do with the Phillies' World Series title. T-shirts, hoodies or caps that say "World Series Champions" or anything celebrating the crown is all any Phillies' fan could want under the tree on Dec. 25. If you can't find it at your favorite retailer, all this stuff is available at mlb.com. You can even get a Philadelphia Phillies 2008 World Champions Collectors Edition of Monopoly.
A set of golf clubs is always a good idea. If you want to do something a little less expensive for your favorite golfer, golf accessories or a gift certificate to their favorite course would do the trick.
How about some tickets to see their favorite professional team in person? You can't go wrong there. Unless you are thinking of buying Eagles' playoff tickets.
If your sports fan likes to read, get him or her a book or two. A great selection can be found at Amazon.com.
Another good gift is a sports-related day-by-day desk calendar. Your sports fan could quiz his friends and co-workersr with the trivia items for each day of the year .
Or buy your fan a jersey of their favorite athlete. That's a good idea --unless it's an athlete who hasn't run into trouble with the law, that is.
Those are just a few ideas to get for the sports fan in your life. Happy holidays!
