Professional Sports: An AltUse to Experience


We're in the throes of an exciting Baseball Playoff season, with one World Series participant crowned, the Philadelphia Phillies. The final spot could be filled tonight if the Yankees close out the Angels.  What is the best seat in the house; at the ballpark, home in front of your big screen TV, or listening to the game on the radio?

Have you ever wondered about an alternative way of experiencing the action on the field? Tried Fantasy Baseball?  For a complete explanation on the history of Fantasy baseball, check out  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantasy_baseball.  Also available are Fantasy Football, Basketball, and Hockey Leagues.   This is big business, too.  It is estimated that there are more than 27 million fantasy sports players in the US, generating between $800 million to $1 billion in revenue, according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (http://tinyurl.com/my984q).

AltUse is not only about alternative uses for everyday products, it also about alternative ways of doing things.  If you have an alternative use for a sports equipment article, such as a baseball bat, a football, etc. please submit it to AltUse.com.  For example see an AltUse for a tennis ball at http://tinyurl.com/yhy32q6
