Away From the Golf Course: Create a Practice Plan in the Privacy of Your Own Home

golf clubs with blue sky

It’s every golfer’s dream to spend each day on the greens, but those who can’t make daily trips due to price, weather, or life responsibilities, assume the hunched position at home, practicing with whiffle balls, nets, and electronic devices while daydreaming about making outdoor rounds.

Whiffle Balls

Golfers use the balls indoors for putting practice. Being incredibly light, the balls attract wind resistance, so one can hit at full speed.

Golf Nets

Taking a full swing in a small yard is no good, so a number of avid golfers buy nets. That way, they can swing away without worrying about affecting those around them or losing balls. Nets come in a variety of sizes and shapes, with some that look more like baseball cages, allowing golfers to take notice of ball trajectory.

Bullz-Eye interviews New York Giants linebacker Jon Beason for Duracell

New York Giants All-Pro middle linebacker Jon Beason hung out at MetLife Stadium (with Taye Diggs in tow) last week and explained to a throng of dudes how Duracell’s Quantum batteries power the NFL. We were part of that gaggle of dudes.

Talk about how you hooked up with Duracell.

“Duracell reached out, and being the “Mike” linebacker in our defense and equipped with the headset, I’m powered by Duracell Quantum. It was an eye-opening experience to work with Duracell. Through the course of an NFL game, 650 Duracell Quantum batteries are used, and that’s just mind boggling. And I thought, ‘Where do they all go?’ You can go to facebook.com/Duracell to find out all the others ways they are used to make sure the fans have the best experience possible.”

This preseason, I’ve noticed more than ever opposing QBs calling out where the mike linebacker is a lot more. Why is this?

“In a 4-3 scheme, there are 11 guys on both sides of the ball. There are two of everything except the mike linebacker; cornerbacks, defensive tackles, outside linebackers and safeties and then the one mike. Based on where he aligns, he is the X-factor, the extra defender, the guy you have to account for, because when the offense overloads a side in terms of protection, that is where we can gain an advantage. They usually point me out as mike based on what we’re in, but based on how were spinning the safety down, what we’re showing when we are showing pressure, they can call someone else the mike and say he’s the guy you are responsible for. If he comes, he is the X-factor in terms of pressure.”

Over the last couple years, you’ve had to play both “Sam” and “Will” linebacker positions. How nice is it to go back to mike, your native LB position?

“It’s funny. The reason I played outside is because I got drafted as a will and got moved over in week five of my rookie year due to injuries and played the mike backer, and [that] ended up being the best possible fit for me and my personality. It’s home; it’s like riding a bike. It’s something you’re never going to forget and something I’ve done at a consistent level, so to be back at that position is something that I’m grateful for and appreciative of.”

Is this the hardest period of time in the history of the NFL to be a defender?

“Absolutely. They’ve completely made the game too passive. That’s what they want — they want more points. It is what it is.”

Is there a guy you look forward to tackling the most when you are actually allowed to?

“Everybody! I’d love to tackle everybody! It doesn’t matter to me – I don’t discriminate!”

Relive the 90s with the Blast basketball shoe from Reebok

Reebok is bringing back the uber-successful Blast basketball shoe from the 90s, mainly worn by the great point guard Nick Van Exel, aka Nick the Quick. The Blast has reached celebrity status with its reverse contrast and OG style, and now history is about to repeat itself, because the best of the 90s is back.

We tested a pair to be sure that the 90s were as good as everyone remembers them, and these kicks stand the test of time, guaranteed to give all Bullz-Eye ballers out there both the style and lift they’re looking for when on or off the court. The Blast features Hexalite cushioning and a supportive cut, allowing players to explode to the hoop without worrying about rolling an ankle, while the stark contrast of the black and white with a touch of red really pops.

On Friday, August 29, 2014, limited pairs of the Blast (white/red/excellent red) will be available in adult sizing for $119.99 at retailers including Finish Line, Champs, Eastbay, Jimmy Jazz, Footaction, Villa and Reebok.com.
