How Adding a Sports Simulator to Your Man Cave Can Create a Sports Fanatic’s Paradise

Like every man, every man cave is unique. There are man caves for computer nerds, man cave for motor heads, even man caves for crazed golfers. Yet, maybe the most common man room is the hang-out for sports fans. A standard sports fanatic’s man cave may look something like this: A big screen TV to watch the big game, numerous sofas and sitting areas for friends to get comfortable, perhaps a bar – or at least a fridge – containing beer to fuel the fanatics, and various bits of sports memorabilia dangling off the walls, mocking the girlfriend or wife as mementos of her boyfriend’s or husband’s deep love for a game.

Still, a sports fan’s man room can be more than a simple theater for watching televised sports. Some guys like to spice it up with a video game console equipped with Madden™ or NBA Live™. This is because, men have a thirst for competition. For the die-hard fan, this is spurred on by watching competitive sports, which only encourages delusional thoughts of extraordinary prowess.

Besides video games, there are other pieces of technology can be added to improve a man cave. Some fellas may use a simulator. One simulator in particular, the mini home sports simulator, uses the man room’s already existing giant TV like a video game console.

Sports simulators may not be virtual reality, but they provide a very exciting experience for sports fans. They not only allow guys to beat each other at games, but allow them to fantasize about becoming pro athletes. Sports simulators engage the user by permitting the use of actual sports equipment. For example, users can throw a football, or shoot a hockey puck into the simulator.

A mini home sports simulator has all the capabilities a normal simulator has, but is more practical for a man room. It doesn’t take up the space needed for buddies to stretch out their legs and grub on nachos and beer.

For those die-hard sports fanatics, you are a good candidate for an official man cave. No rec room is complete without a simulator to test your grit against a computerized opponent or even your buddies.

Many simulators are too large to fit inside a man cave, but there is hope for the sports fan. A home sports simulator is the perfect substitute. Sports fans can install a mini home sports simulator into their television. Of course, a net is raised in front for the TV to guard it from projectile sports gear.

The miniature sports simulator can become the staple for the man cave. No longer will it be a room only used during game days, but one that can be used every day. Right after you get home, or long into the late hours of the night, you can spend more time enjoying the man room, even if the wife or girlfriend doesn’t approve.

How Simulated Forex Trading Can Improve Your Trading

Have you wondered how you can get better at trading faster? I think that simulated forex trading is one of the best methods and I will use a sports analogy to explain why. Even if you did not play sports, there is probably something you did or didn’t do in your life that relates to the brief story I will tell.

One of the most important things in improving in anything is gaining confidence, in particular gaining confidence under fire. Many of the people who read this website know that I grew up playing sports. When I was born, my dad was a coach and he loved basketball. I grew to love the sport as well and began playing at a very young age.

What does this have to do with Forex trading? Well, on the first day of summer and older friend and graduating senior stopped by my house where I was practicing and in 30 minutes showed me the fundamentals of a good jump shot. At that point I had been wondering how to shoot and what to practice all summer and how. The 30 minutes he spent with me, changed my life in terms of basketball. I began to shoot jump shots everyday and recorded them in a spiral notebook. I shot 1000 jump shots 6 days a week during the summer and more on Sunday when my mom let me.

I figured my friends may have shot a total of 200 practice shots in the summer. Most kids don’t really spend their time practicing a sport. But maybe, there was one player that might have spent enough time on the court to shoot 1000 shots for the summer. I was shooting 1000 plus 500 free throws 6 days a week, 6 times more than he was.

With about 3 months of summer that was about 10 weeks or 60 days or 60,000 shots. I was taking more practice shots in one summer than some high school players took during a whole career of games and practice. This practice put me much further ahead in terms of “practice years” of the other players and I ended up leading the league part of the next season in per game scoring average.

You can do the same thing with Forex. There are simulated Forex trading programs that you can purchase for a small amount of money, load in real data, and practice your technique.

If you are looking for a way to improve your trading, try a Forex trading simulator. I think you will see yourself gaining confidence and improving your bottom line if you do.
