Title game brings closure to long season

NEW ORLEANS - The moment was about as stilted as it could get, though Les Miles and Nick Saban certainly knew the routine.

Tebow Time has already come and gone

It was fun in a way the NFL often isn't, a midseason diversion that sent fans into a frenzy in Denver and prompted people around the country to drop to a knee. Even if you didn't believe in Tim Tebow, it was hard to take your eyes off him as he found ways to win despite passes that fluttered about like balloons on a windy day.

My vow: same fish, new rivers

Well, are we all ready? Are we standing on top of a grassy hill, fishing rods, hunting rifles, mountain bikes, ab-rollers, recycling bins and piggy banks raised above our collective heads, calling out "Freedom" like William Wallace, ready to attack the new year like "warrior poets"?

Good ways to keep warm & dry fishing

The best thing about rain this time of the year is that it knocks down the fog. The worst thing about it of course is staying dry. When it comes to purchasing rain gear, you get what you pay for.
