Rick's Appearance on 92.9 The Game with Sam Crenshaw and Sports Holiday Gifts 12/17/17

I join Sam and Greg on Sunday Morning, Dec. 17, 2017 on SportsRadio 92.9 The Game, to talk some holiday sports tech gift possibilities.

What you can get at the last minute for the sports minded person on your list...

We discuss:

1. Airfree Tulip Air Freshener

Breathe clean air...
Airfree Tulip is the ideal solution for compact spaces, where design and wellness are essential in breathing fresh air. For just $239

Slim and powerful, the Airfree Tulip promises clean air and design that fits with your home décor.
This patented Thermodynamic TSS Technology destroys mold, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, pollens, pet dander, tobacco and other organic allergens.

Airfree also reduces indoor harmful ozone levels. It is perfect for mold contaminated areas as well as asthma and allergy sufferers.

Airfree ’s exclusive technology is completly silent and does not require any filters or maintenance.


2. SmartHalo Bike Sensor

$149 great for the biking enthusiast
Forget a rental car or a taxi: The best way to explore a city is often on two wheels. At the close of 2017, more than 60 U.S. municipalities are offering bike-share programs where at little or no cost, you can grab a bike and then return it when finished at any rack or station in the operating area. But how to know where you are going in a new city? SmartHalo is a sensor-like GPS device that attaches to any type of bike handlebar and pairs by Bluetooth with the SmartHalo app. While cycling, the phone stays in the pocket or the purse, and you get the fastest routes, answer calls and track fitness data.  

3.  CEP Compression Gear

CEP Compression is a world leader in performance compression socks and apparel. Perfect for travel and fitness themed gift possibilities in the new year. CEP has a big holiday sale ongoing, and they ship fast! Compression sleeves and socks are crucial for people who travel long distances and have to remain seated for long periods of time. When movement is constrained, blood circulation to the legs is restricted causing heavy legs, leg pain, swollen feet and ankles and even blood clots. Try the Recovery+ Pro Compression Socks.

The William Murray Golf line will break away from traditional golf apparel companies by bringing a new look and feel to the industry with a little irreverence and a lot of style. The style will truly be first-of-its kind in the golf world and not one you'll typically see on the course. The incredibly fashionable line will consist of uniquely designed polos, shorts and hats. And even a golf buttoned down, which has become Bill's signature look on the course. Bill was actually recently seen wearing one of the WMG polos at the Ryder Cup the other week. Here is an awesome photo with him in the gear.

July 3, Appearance on Sam Crenshaw's Sunday Morning Show 92.9 The Game

Talking Wimbledon along with grilling and outdoors gadgets with Sam.

Have a listen:


Rick's must haves for the outdoors and working the BBQ grill this weekend

1.  Mini Green Egg

If you already have the Big Green Egg in the backyard, but what would he take to the lake, tailgate or on that spur of the moment camping trip? Let me introduce you to the Mini Green Egg. Bet you ddidn't even know that the Big Green Egg's corporate headquaters is right here, in Norcross.
With a grid diameter of just 10 inches, the Mini Egg is the one and only perfect solution for picnics and tailgating when you want to take The Ultimate Cooking Experience on the road. It is also a popular size for grilling on apartment balconies or camping and boating. Leave those propane canisters at home and enjoy your favorite campfire meal on a Mini Egg. At one time, the Mini Egg can cook two chicken breasts, a few burgers, a sleeve of hot dogs or one large steak. Retails for $399, see more at

2. Grillbot - No mess, no work, just a clean grill - $130 on Amazon

Grilling is awesome, but cleaning all the blackened, caked-on food goo afterward? Not so much. Fortunately, we live in a time where where robots can perform most of the menial tasks we hate doing, and much like vacuuming and cleaning the gutters, grill maintenance can now be performed by a robotic slave. Just pop this little bugger on top of the grates when you’re done cooking, and he’ll go to work picking up all the baked-on burger bits you left behind.

3. Thermacall Mosquito Lanterns and Torches

The Thermacell lantern is odorless and runs on a single butane cartridge that heats a repellent mat and releases allethrin, which is a synthetic copy of the natural repellent found in those chrysanthemum flowers.  The high energy butane lasts 30 times longer than the energy of alkaline batteries.  The lantern creates a 15ft.x15ft. invisible protection cell or covers a 225-square feet area up to four hours per mat or 12 hours for a refill kit.  The lantern is prefect to use in not only the home area for grilling and gardening but also in the great outdoors for camping, hunting, and fishing.  Users enjoy that it is deemed safe by the EPA but that it is the exact product used by the U.S. Army in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan.  The Themacell Mosquito Lantern is cordless, small, lightweight, and fits snuggly into a small bag or backpack of any size and ideal to take when you are on the go.  The repellant mats are also easy to transport and replace.  The lantern is an ideal and effective alternative to the smelly and sticky lotions and sprays that must continuously be applied to the skin.  It provides up to 50 times more protection than mosquito coils or citronella candles, and is safer and cleaner than candles; no open flames. The torches accent your patio and backyard nicely.

4.  REKS Sunglasses - protect your eyes

Whether dad hikes, bikes, plays golf or just mows the lawn, he needs to protect his eyes. REKS is a new sunglass brand that is affordable and offers unprescenteded durability when it comes to sun eyewear.
REKS offers six unbreakable classic frame styles to go along with a broad array of proprietary highest grade shatter-resistant polycarbonate lenses and performance coatings only found in the most expensive eyewear, REKS™ Optics has broken all the rules and created a new benchmark in form, function and affordability.
