Looking for a last-minute stocking sports-related stocking stuffer for that hard to buy for person?
Okay, maybe you'd have trouble stuffing these things in a stocking, but Right To Play has come up with a pretty neat sporting auction featuring many of the Olympic athletes that support their cause of bringing sport and play programs to the most disadvantaged parts of the world.
The centrepiece of the eBay auction which ends Dec. 30 is a dream day for any fan of the Chelsea Football Club or most soccer fans in general. It's a chance to be chairman of the team for a day, watch Chelsea FC players train and then watch a game from the directors box.
As of this blog post, there were some incredible bargains to be had with much of the bidding still at under $200.
Among the experiences available:
Figure Skating Pros and their Prose: Sticking with that idea of Christmas stocking stuffers for the moment, there's a couple of excellent figure skating books out there right now that would please both the fan and the novice.

Triumph on Ice by figure skating judge Jean Riley Senft with photography by Gerard Chatigneau explains to the reader the new world of the sport and helps to demystify the new system.
