Wearing a jersey reveals one's love for their favourite sports team, a loyalty to a town, or that they are really a dummy posing as someone playing hooky from school. Don sportswear for a less devious reason with today's Groupon: for $24, you get $50 worth of sporting goods at Bishop's Centre Mad Dog's Source for Sports.

Drape gyrating shoulder blades in a Vancouver Canuck jersey ($99.99) or summon the gods of hockeyopolis with a Phiten power balance bracelet ($39.99). An Easton one-piece hockey stick ($49.99) is ideal for fielding a carom or defending a fort made from sleeping bags and pop bottles. Mad Dog's also sells infer-red energy efficient heaters ($399) which safely warm tree-dwellers and campers alike.
Bishop's Outdoor Living Centre
The winter-sports division of Mad Dog's Source For Sports began with a meagre stash of five skis, five bindings, and eight boots. Over the past 30 years, the superstore has expanded into all seasons and terrains, equipping athletes with name-brand gear and personalized services. Staff prep hockey players for the ice with custom skate fittings catered to each player's foot type, and keep preowned blades crisp with their Blademaster sharpening system. Baseball and softball players charge out into the dirt with new cleats, gloves, or slow-pitch aluminum bats, and lacrosse players glide over the grass with a newly strung STX Proton head. The multiskilled staff strings tennis racquets for hard-court play, and tests each hockey stick they vend to make sure their flavour pairs well with this season's stick tape.
