The best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for sports fans

Publish date:

For most sports fans, the day after Thanksgiving means absolutely nothing aside from a handful of college football, basketball and NBA games. But for millions of consumers, Black Friday means one thing: punching an old lady to get a better price on stuff you don't need. If you want to catch up on eating leftovers while catching up on HBO's The Leftovers, that's fine, but the rest of us are out to get some sweet, discounted merch. Unfortunately for those looking for insane 60-70 percent off deals on NFL tickets, NBA jerseys, or Final Four travel packages, they just don't exist. Never fear, though, we've rounded up some other sports-related bargains that will start your holiday season off on the right foot (straight to that old lady's teeth. Move it, grandma).

The Restock

Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden recently bought out an existing sneaker shop in downtown Cleveland, revamped it, and renamed it The Restock. The store will have a massive grand opening party on Black Friday. The Restock specializes in shoes that consumers can no longer find for sale elsewhere, which is great news for fans of the barf-worthy Kobe 2:

A handful of us will toss around the pigskin before and/or after stuffing our bellies with 5,000 calories on Thanksgiving, but that 10-15 minutes of borderline pointless exercise won't make much of a dent on your newly-expanded waistline. Luckily, Sports Authority has marked down this treadmill by $700 to help get that athletically-gifted body ready for winter vacations.

Thanksgiving is over, and it's time to show that snotty neighbor kid who's boss. Do so by embarrassing him with this arcade-style two-player basketball shooting game. At $99, it's almost financially irresponsible to pass it up.

Don't even think about it: The worst sports gifts you could possibly give

Raiders fans, I hear watching Super Bowl commercials is much better on a beautiful LED HDTV. And thankfully for you, Best Buy has kindly discounted their Sony 40-incher to a bargain price of $199. They must have had you in mind after dropping all that cash on meaningless regular season tickets over the last decade.

EA Sports UFC

The digital version of EA Sports UFC will appear for purchase for Xbox Live Gold members only for a bargain price of $13.20 sometime over the next week. Considering the game retails for $39.99 for most subscribers, the 67 percent discount is a steal for sports gamers. And it gives you another perfect opportunity to show that snotty neighbor kid who's boss. Get over yourself, Riley.
