Every week, Magooby's schedule features established national headliners, including comedians featured on Letterman, The Tonight Show, and Comedy Central. Although many of the comedians featured have made nationally televised appearances, you needn't worry about two of them getting into an onstage fight over contractual issues or comedic supremacy. Magooby's is a down-to-earth comedic facility. In fact, it's so down-to-earth that it's in a root cellar. The parking is free, and guests are encouraged to show up prior to showtime and enjoy a drink—no waiting in a cramped space or standing outside required. If you do want to stand outside, be sure to wear moon shoes.
After taking down Villanova and Morgan State, the Towson University Tigers plan to continue their winning ways against NCAA FCS foes with team coordination honed by coach Rob Ambrose. The four remaining home games promise a thrilling Homecoming on September 24, when the Tigers hope to roar past Colgate's Raiders and claw their way to a collective nomination for homecoming queen. Throughout the season, look for sophomore quarterback Grant Enders—who recently was named CAA Offensive Player of the Week—or speedy running back Sterlin Phifer to celebrate touchdowns in the end zone against the Richmond Spiders and Delaware Blue Hens. Co-captain and defensive back Jordan Dangerfield will try to improve his status as the nation's 24th-ranked sacker by blasting through New Hampshire's offensive line using archaic tactics the Visigoths once used to sack Rome.
Sports International's football clinics make MVPs of 7- to 18-year-olds in an intensive, small-group setting with instruction from college and high school coaching staff. The Steve Slaton two-day camp, running July 10–11 in Sugar Land, gives potential pigskin purveyors a comprehensive crash course in offensive and defensive skills from renowned Texans running back Steve Slaton, talented high-school coaches, and a mob of disgruntled footballs. Working in groups no larger than 10, nascent Heisman candidates perform many of the same drills taught by the Texans' coaching staff. Attendees receive a free camp T-shirt and souvenir autograph football but must provide, rent, or manufacture their own playing gear.
The 24,000 sq. ft. facility boasts a fleet of ultra-modern workout equipment, more than 25 big-screen TVs, specialized fitness areas, and a long list of classes. Exercisers can chisel their figures with free weights or get their hearts pumping like pioneers on a handcar with the gleaming cardio equipment. In addition to the one-month membership, fitness buffs will receive one personal-training session guided by one of Fit!'s devoted instructors as well as two sessions in vertical tanning beds. The package also includes a dance-fitness-fusion Zumba class—the best union since Swedish Fish and Sarsaparilla—and a LIVEStrong Spinning class, which will help cut calories while training patrons to out-peddle bloodthirsty segways.
