The Smokies, a Double-A minor-league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, hold a commanding lead in the North division with over 30 wins in the season's second half. As the team heads into the 2010 playoffs for the North Division of the Southern League, they are led by three of the top five current batting leaders in the league. You and three other humans can enjoy a night of watching potential future Cubs, and potential (and unlikely) future Grammy-winning recording artists battling a soon-to-be determined rival. All tickets purchased will be seated together in the field level seats, so groups that want to perform synchronized cheers, with a hot dog in one hand, a small soda in the other hand, and a program in the other hand, should have one person purchase all of the tickets.

Knoxville Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu's expert instructors work to hone combative jabs and harden muscles during kickboxing classes and functional training boot camps. In kickboxing sessions, students of all ages, genders, species, and athletic abilities embark on a full-body workout where they can practice foot strikes, punching combinations, and punching combination locks off lockers. Alternatively, a four-week boot-camp program lights a fire under unwanted fat with intense routines, adjusting its moves and pace to accommodate each client's fitness level. Patrons might heave russian kettlebells, make waves with battling ropes, and roll medicine balls in between military-style bodyweight exercises.
