4 ways to save money during football season

first_imgIf you love football like I do, you’re pretty excited when this time of year rolls around. As fun as it is, it can be expensive. Here are a few things you can do to enjoy yourself and save a few bucks.1. Fund your football addictionIf you’re going to spend a lot of money this football season, try figuring out a way to raise some dough before the season starts. Having a yard sale could be a great way to raise some pocket cash for a ticket you want or that party you want to throw. Have an old guitar or piece of workout equipment you don’t use anymore? Throw it up on Ebay or Craigslist and turn it into cash.2. Go big or stay homeWe all love the big games, especially when our team is involved. When those weeks roll around, do it big! If you’re throwing a party, grill it up and stock up on beer. Having a big event is always fun. If you’re going to the game, plan out an exciting tailgate and do it up right. When your team is in a less exciting matchup, watch your game, but keep it light and try not to spend any more cash than you would on a non-football Saturday.3. Split those season ticketsFeel the need to be at the stadium as much as possible? Trying splitting those season tickets with a buddy. You can go to games together or divide the games and take other friends and family. Even that way, you’ll get to see 3 or 4 games for a decent price.4. Involve everyone in your party plansIf you love to constantly have people over on game days, just make sure you’re not footing the bill every weekend. Make it a potluck and get your friends to all contribute to the spread. It’s a lot easier to have a great party week after week if it’s not costing you hundreds each Saturday. 233SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Robles (2-3) was making his Angels debut after he was claimed off waivers from the New York Mets.The 35-year-old Morales made his major league debut with the Angels in 2006 and played for them for six years.center_img Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Toronto jumped in front on Travis’ three-run homer off Felix Pena in the second. Diaz hit a tiebreaking leadoff drive in the sixth, and Granderson added his seventh of the season with two out.Justin Upton hit his 17th homer for the Angels, and Maldonado had two hits and four RBIs. Pena, a converted reliever making his second career start, allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings.“We battled back. We didn’t do enough things in the end,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “We couldn’t keep it in the park. They hit four home runs off us. We do a good job getting back in games.”Free timeAngels star Mike Trout has some free time during games when he serves as the designated hitter. His sprained index finger has kept him from playing center field, which can make for some restless moments.“I’m going to tell him to go play catch in left field and roll it back left-handed so he can feel like he plays some defense. He goes crazy in the dugout,” Scioscia said. “DHing is not easy, especially when you’re used to the everyday separation of going out there and focusing on defense. The best thing to get an at-bat out of your head is to go out and play defense.”Pitching with purposeToronto right-hander Sam Gaviglio was charged with three runs and five hits in 4-2/3 innings in his first start back from paternity leave. Gaviglio’s daughter, Livia, was born on Tuesday.“It was nice. It’s like riding a bike,” Gaviglio said. “It’s just another baseball game.”AlsoAngels LHP Tyler Skaggs, who was scratched on Thursday because of hamstring tightness, came out of his bullpen session Saturday with no problems and will start Monday in Kansas City.

He’s always been a dangerous hitter,” Gibbons said. “I was telling somebody the other day, he got rid of his glasses. The glasses were screwing him up.”Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

Diaz had two hits and scored three times.Travis praised Gibbons for sending Morales to the plate in the 10th.“Two outs, putting Kendrys in in that situation. He’s a good hitter. That was awesome,” Travis said. “Kendrys has been swinging the bat so well really all year. You can look at his numbers and they don’t quite tell the story. I feel every time the guy goes to the box he puts the barrel on the ball, he puts up a good at-bat and just happy things have been going better in the luck department lately. That was a big one right there. He’s a guy in this locker room that gels everyone together.”last_img read more
