    Cock Fighting-10


    For years, the Sioux Falls, SD professional baseball team and member of the American Association independent baseball league was known as the Canaries.

    Uh, the what?

    What's worse, the Sioux Falls Stadium where games were played was known to fans as The Birdcage, and the team mascot was a big yellow0-feathered creature wearing a baseball uniform, named "Cagey."

    Free Condoms-15


    Sometimes here at the Outdoor Life Newshound, the blog just writes itself. And this week we have received an especially wonderful gift from a highly unlikely source—one of the country’s most radical environmental organizations, the Center for Biological Diversity.

    Based in Tucson, Ariz., the Center for Biological Diversity has made a name for itself primarily as an environmental litigious entity. Over the years it has successfully blocked everything from public land timber sales to expansion of water projects in the West through creative use of lawsuits and the court system.
