Appearance with Sam Crenshaw on 92.9 The Game 5/7/17 for Mother's Day

If you are searching for that perfect gift for that active Mom, Rick joins Sam Crenshaw on SportsRadio 92.9 The Game, here are some suggestions:




HyperChiller Coffee Mug/Brewer

Iced coffee is the perfect summer drink and the HyperChiller is a cool coffee mug that turns hot coffee into iced coffee in 60 seconds, easy to use, and there is no work, it does it all. With the HyperChiller your beverage is exposed to the equivalent of over 30 large ice cubes, but protected by two layers of food grade stainless steel — so there's zero dilution in the process of cooling. The HyperChiller also works on beverages like wine, spirits, tea, juice, water, lemonade, sports drinks or any other non-carbonated beverage you’d like cooled quickly.

The HyperChiller is ready when you are. Just leave it in your freezer, then take it out, pour your beverage in and the HyperChiller will rapidly chill it in just one minute. Mom can even use it a couple times in a row. When she's done, just stick it back in your freezer to use again later. It's compatible with all brewing methods and even fits directly into most full size single cup brewers. A bargain for $29.99 at http://hyperchiller.com.
 

NapAnywhere Travel Pillow - For Neck Support and Health

Is Mom a frequent flier? Maybe she just deserves a nap. The NapAnywhere is a portable head-support pillow developed specifically by a physician for frequent travelers, or those looking to catch a few z's in a tight place.  This comfortable, portable device can be used effectively while traveling on planes, subways, trains, buses and cars as a passenger. Small and compact, it fits easily into Mom’s carry-on, backpack, diaper bag or purse. The NapAnywhere is available in five colors, including Crimson, Cobalt, Lime, Pink and Black. It is stain-resistant, and can be wiped clean with either mild soapy water or a light solvent like rubbing alcohol. A carrying pouch is included to help protect the NapAnywhere when not in use. The NapAnywhere® travel pillow is the winner of a 2014 Product Innovation Award at the International Travel Goods Show. Suitable for ages 8 and up and just $49.99 at  http://napanywhere.net.

No More Fidgit Gadgets at School?

The devices spin, click, and twirl, and they’re billed as a way to help both kids and adults focus.

However, some local schools are telling parents to have their kids leave them at home.
