    Ok, so I am struggling here. My brother's birthday and Christmas are coming up and he is the absolute hardest person to shop for. If he wants something, he gets it. Gift cards are really no good. He does have a basically empty house though...

    Help...any ideas?

    I would think that is his own personal stuff that he does not want to share.

    You could have the seating in the South Bowl of Jack Trice named on his behalf with your generous lead donation... :yes: :wink:

    My brother in law is the king of buying us things we would never buy for ourselves.
    A fishing and hunting game for the TV
    Light-up flashing beer mugs
    adjustable putting green for the house
    Gun-shaped remote control
    All sorts of pointless stuff that we can bust out when the occasion warrants it.

    Basically he is just into golf and sports... Big Gator fan... He is in some celebrity fishing/nascar tournament this winter so I was thinking maybe a fishing pole or something...

    He just got a new i-phone. Are there any accesorries or aps he may not have thought to buy?

    I'd look for something consumable. Are there any services he could use? House cleaning? Car washing? Any food he'd like? How about golf balls with a Gator logo?

    What kind of fishing? Large mouth? Where does he reside when he is not playing baseball?

    He lives in Frisco, Tx (just north of Dallas). He really only fishes at spring training (Indian River, FL...flats), but has this thing coming up. I guess they are teamed with a driver and a pro fisherman and do some combo of both. The tournament is near Dallas so I am assuming bass.
