Led by veteran players Clint Dempsey, Tim Howard, and Carlos Bocanegra, the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team faces off against CONCACAF rival Honduras. Holding an 11-3-3 series advantage against the Central American team dating back to 1965, the U.S. team will attempt to kick its way to victory like a kangaroo escaping the circus. With both teams angling for World Cup berths in 2014, the international friendly match will offer players and coaches a chance to size each other up in the vast Sun Life Stadium, which ensconces spectators in a patriotic red and blue color scheme. Today's deal also includes an American flag, allowing fans to excitedly wave banners during dazzling plays or to carefully examine stars to ensure that Hawaii is, in fact, a state.

Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into a Ferrari or Lamborghini on a closed course and whip their more than 500-horsepower drive three times around the autocross track, learning how to tame their power with the aid of an instructor before coming out of the third lap on a straightaway to open the engine up to its full potential. Drivers conduct an orchestra of firing pistons and camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine. Gotham Dream Cars snaps pictures of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to parade before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts.

Like a 24-hour caddie, Golf Pipeline empowers golfers to make tee times, keep tabs on improvement, and follow the on-course exploits of their fellow club swingers. After signing up and creating a profile, golfers enjoy access to the website's tee time reservation system, where they can search for available time slots by date, time, location, and cost, and then invite contacts from their network, Facebook, or LinkedIn to join them. The score tracker lets golfers log rounds and monitor their own performance trends such as stroke average, putts per hole, and greens hit in regulation. If they choose to join a Golf Pipeline handicap club and log five rounds in the system, golfers can submit the data in exchange for a handicap number that is helpful to know when assessing one's own game and betting their parents' house on a round of golf.
