There is a growing trend for people to create bucket lists of all the things that they want to do before they literally pass away. This odd expression is now common on the internet and many people from all walks of life, including celebrities have started up their own ‘must do’ registers. For those who are mad about anything to do with team games or activities, a sports vacation is also taking off in a big way too.
There are many sites on the net where like-minded people can come together and talk all about their favorite players etc. However, the specialist ones have ratings so that the enthusiast can fill in a virtual passport every time they see favored game or two. For this, he will receive virtual points and then be ‘awarded’ when he meets certain thresholds. Of course, there is nothing tangible on offer. All he will get is kudos for having completed ever wish that he has written there.
Some ideas for this register may be following a favorite team all over the country when they are playing in league matches. Not only does this give the enthusiast an opportunity to see the team in action, he also learns about all the places that he will visit en route.
Even the World Cup or the Olympics can be included in this register and imagine the points to be picked up next year if anyone gets to the UK for the opening ceremony? In fact, it is events like this that most people would wish to go see anyway so what better way to do it than with the envy of everyone who visits the same site?
Closer to home, some people take one month off to visit certain states and will want to see every game, of every description, going on there over that period. By using online search templates, the job is made very easy and the enthusiast can pick and choose just where to visit when he is passing through. This can be mixed in with visiting famous places too if the kids are along for the trip so everyone is satisfied.
Some sites have some wonderful offers online too since travel companies have realized that they have a captive audience here. They know well in advance where all the fixtures will be played so they can usually set up good deals for those who come through the site to book. They may also be able to give discounts for group bookings too since it should not be too hard to get a certain number to travel together.
It is obvious then that anything to do with these register is big business for those who advertise on the sites. However, for the enthusiast, it gives him the opportunity to talk, eat and sleep his favorite game without anyone complaining that this is all he talks about. Wives in particular will be happy that they know where their husband is, while still being accessible for the kids etc.
