Havin' a Heat Wave The Pitch: So it was a billion degrees all weekend. Lucky we have a pool, but for those with no body of water close at hand, no need to stay indoors. High Caliber (asi/43442) offers item T-873, the Deluxe Water Misting Fan. It holds about 1500 sprays at a time and it not only cools you off, but is cool-looking as well. You can get it foras low as $8.45-R. This is perfect for outdoor events, summer camps, amusement parks and more. Click here: http://www.highcaliberline.com/. The Bottom Line: Spray away.
Cap It Off The Pitch: We took my nephew Ryan to the Hard Rock Café in Philly on Saturday. Of course, Steve says it's a tourist trap (and it is), but we wound up playing into it and buying a T-shirt and pin for Ryan and a souvenir pint glass and cap for Steve who, by the way, already owns about 20 million caps. I know, I'm really exaggerating today, but you get the idea. Well, Outdoor Cap Company (asi/75420)is similarly "passionate about headwear." That's their slogan. And they offer many great caps, including item GWT-116, asix-panel, unstructured, garment-washed version, available in a variety of colors. It's from their Value Line. For more info, click here: http://outdoorcap.com/. The Bottom Line: Heads up.
Clack On The Pitch: Here's a cool variation on noisemakers.Spirit Clakkers from Points of Light (asi/78825) are fingerless gloves with noisemakers on the inside, so when fans clap, they clack. Plus, they are touch-screen friendly. One size fits all and you can get them foras low as $3.59-R. These are perfect for sports, pep rallies and fundraisers. Check them out here: http://www.polpromo.com/. The Bottom Line: Fan favorite.
For Your Weiner The Pitch: Zipline (asi/99030) has just what any BBQ needs:A Bamboo-handled, telescopic, stainless-steel grilling fork. The shaft extends to 34 inches and the thumb roller ensures that food cooks evenly. Pricing starts at: 50; $6.99-C.
