Start a pickup game: Start an informal game of football or hockey at a local park

Does your favorite football team have a bi-week? Pick up the ol’ pigskin yourself, call up some friends, and organize a pickup game at a local park. All you need are hand towels, a pair of pants with belt loops, and some good friends and you are well on your way to hours of fun on a beautiful, Saturday afternoon. Is the snow holding you back? Then strap on some skates, grab a hockey stick, throw down the puck, and hit the open ice at one of the indoor or outdoor hockey rinks around town.
