Baseball Fan Loyalty Rankings in the Major Leagues | Infographic

October 19th, 2011 - 2:58 PM
This weekend, my husband and I watched Moneyball at the theater.  If you haven't seen it, you should.  Great movie— whether you're a baseball fan or not.  While the story and concept behind what Billy Beane did with the Oakland A's was super interesting, it made me think beyond how the game is won because it's also a story of fan loyalty.  It's not difficult to show-up for a team when they're on top, with all of the best, well-known, highest-paid players.  But it's a little more difficult when they're on a losing streak and the talent pool doesn't seem quite as awesome.

Universities With High On-Campus Populations Infographic

October 12th, 2011 - 10:33 AM
In my former life, I worked as a residence hall director at a university.  During that time I picked up on the importance of living on-campus, especially for underclassmen.  Studies show that students who live on campus have higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate, do a better job of making friends and getting connected, have less stresses about money, become more successful leaders, and have a better over-all college experience.  I'll take that.

Top 5 Must See Baseball Parks

October 3rd, 2011 - 10:44 AM
One of my co-workers just recently started doing something I think is really cool.  He and his wife have a goal to visit every Major League baseball stadium in the U.S. So far they've marked four off their list:  Rangers Ballpark to see the Texas Rangers, Chase Field to see the Arizona Diamondbacks, Busch Stadium to see the St. Louis Cardinals and Kauffman Stadium to see the Kansas City Royals.  They've got somewhere around 25 more to go— that ought to keep them busy for a while!  What an awesome addition to your bucket list.

By Jeremy
September 28th, 2011 - 3:54 PM
One benefit customer's love about U-Pack is the ability to easily track their shipment 24/7 while it's in transit.  There seems to be so much more peace of mind in knowing where your belongings are and when they're expected to arrive at your new home— especially if you've selected the money-saving estimated transit option.  Though you may not have a specific day it has to arrive, it stands to reason that it's at least helpful to know what to expect as it's traveling. 

So U-Pack offers two ways to track your shipment:

5 Best NFL Stadiums

September 14th, 2011 - 9:10 AM
It's football season.   Know how I know?  The DVR is full, my husband is glued to both his laptop and the television, and  most nights of the week include much more aggressive jumping and yelling that you would have seen last month, or the month before.   Of course, my husband is the manager of an NFL team…kind of.   Fantasy Football is alive and well at our house.  

The U-Pack® College Packing List

September 12th, 2011 - 2:37 PM

You're sitting in the lavish, spacious bedroom of your parents' home— complete with private bath and walk-in closet.  You have a garage full of sports equipment, bikes, and plenty of storage space throughout.  Suddenly you realize your new dorm is about the same size as said closet (and you have to share it with a roommate)! 

There will be no storage space.  There will barely be enough room to sleep and study.  What are you going to do without your 52" flat screen, the linen closet full of stuffed animals, and the Bowflex?  Welcome to college, baby!  It's called "roughing it."  Below is a list of essentials.  (You probably won't have room for much else.)

Here are some other differences that may not be quite so obvious:
