A couple of weeks ago I went to a Christmas Party (a little late, I know!) hosted by my favorite skydivers, those from Green Bay.  That got me really excited about the upcoming spring and summer.  Because that equals warm weather, weather where I want to jump.  Yes, I know the crew at Green Bay jumps year round, I don't like the cold.  Because for how cold it is here on the ground, it is WAY colder up in the air.  
With all that said, what I am most excited about is the prospect of doing a static line jump.  Till now I have only gone tandem, and nothing to worry about there jumping with a seasoned veteren.  I hope I can work up the nerve to hang on the strut, let go, and land safely not in a corn field.  There are corn fields and a llama farm up there people have landed in, I don't want to join that!  Plus if you land off the airport, you have to buy a case of beer.  Free beer is better than bought beer.

NFL Football Picks from Wunderdog Sports

Picking NFL games is one of the most difficult things to do when football betting. While most sports bettors and sports gamblers think that Vegas makes money off of football betting, loses money on pro baseball, and breaks even on basketball. Still, people can’t seem to stay away from making NFL football predictions. Making NFL picks on games isn’t rocket science but their are simple rules that can help you become a much more successful bettor and your sports book balance will reflect that.
The NFL is a league loaded with parity. That is why you won’t often see lines that are inflated much past a couple of touchdowns. The majority of lines will be within a touchdown and are often decided by less than a field goal. Therefore, you can’t really expect to find any so called locks. Instead, you have to look for value with each pick. There is one category of teams that is constantly a winner in NFL football betting. Home underdogs are some of the best value sports picks year in and year out.
Home underdog lines often look like they should be an obvious bet on the favorite. It looks like that favored team should roll into the underdog’s house and blow them out. More times than not, the home underdog will cover, though. This is especially true in high profile games, where Las Vegas makes a killing off of people who are willing to bet on those big road favorites.
In addition to betting on the home underdogs, there are other NFL picks that sports bettors should always consider. When a team is coming off of a Monday night game they arn't as likely to play well the next week. Likewise, it is always smart to make your against teams that have to travel all of the way across the country. Football players and teams are impacted impacted by things like jet lag and travel.

The Joy of the Jump!

Why people jump out of a perfectly good airplane can only be fully understood once you have done it and can never be fully explained in words. After I made my first jump I felt like I could do anything! It was amazing, and for the first time I understood why this sport is addictive. You don't need drugs, it is absolutely the most amazing experience. The rush you get in the free fall, followed by the absolute silence after the canopy opens. And every time I jump, it can only get better and more enjoyable.

Benefit of Tandem Jumping

After making my first skydive a tandem jump, (but I sat through the static line class before that jump), I have definatley decided there are benefits to making your first jump out of an airplane with a professional and a tandem rig!!!

1) It is harder to chicken out. In my case, I was strapped to a guy bigger than I am and where he went, I went. There was very little time after the door opened and we jumped out of the plane. I had no time to think about how crazy what it was that I was leaving a perfectly good airplane at 10,000 feet! This was a good thing.

2) You get to enjoy the ride. The person I jumped with is currenlty breaking the 1,800 jump mark. They know what they are doing. That brings a sense of calm to you as you are doing something many would say is crazy.

3) The landing. You don't necassarily realize how quickly you come to the ground after a jump until you are doing it. And if you don't flare at the right time the landing could be kinda rough. And even before you get that far, you might totally miss the landing area. This whole thing scare me a bit about going it alone, but with the help of someone, your first jump, and landing can be very pleasant. My first landing was stand up.

So I must say, I think going tandem your first time out would increase the likely hood someone will think Sky Diving is awesome and be hooked from then on!!!
