Tucson in the Roaring '20s had nothing on today's booming metropolis when it comes to sports. There's Wildcat basketball, for example (LUTE! LUTE! LUTE!), baseball spring training, El Tour de Tucson, and of course, cable. Sure, dance marathons and flagpole sitting were fun in their day, but now we have virtually all sports 24/7, whether your game is watching or playing, inside or out, on a team or solo. If you play, where better to get outfitted than Play It Again Sports. These folks buy, sell, and trade used and new sports equipment, and you'll find some roaring deals.
