Although he didn't do well on "Dancing With The Stars," Mark Cuban still enjoys the occasional Chicken Dance.

Being a sports fan requires a lot of time, effort, energy and emotion. It also doesn't hurt to have some fun knick-knacks and memorabilia to further boost and prove your loyalty to your team -- especially this time of year. Hockey, basketball and football (NFL and NCAA) will be dominating the sports airwaves this weekend and, if you're like us, then you've got your TV schedule all set. However, do you have everything you need to properly cheer on your respective teams? That's why we present For Sale Friday each week; to help you find the goods you need (and not this broken toothpick for sale).


New York Rangers at New Jersey Devils

Tonight 7 ET

One of the NHL's hottest, ugliest rivalries is renewed tonight at the Prudential Center (aka The Rock) in Newark, New Jersey. Rangers fans who enjoy stirring the pot a bit have no problem showing up in the enemy's arena while wearing their jerseys and hats and starting "Let's Go Rangers" chants. However, fans who like to take it to the next level would be proud to show up with a Rangers team gnome in tow.

Northwestern at Penn State - JoePa Goes For No. 400

Saturday 3:30 ET on ABC

Although it's far from being high profile, this game does feature the possibility of yet another milestone for the Nittany Lions head coach Joe Paterno. If he gets another great showing from the running tandem of senior Evan Royster and true freshman Silas Redd, JoePa will be rewarded with win number 400 -- a number that will probably stand for eternity. What better way to show your support for Penn State's beloved coach than with this JoePa action figure.


Denver Nuggets at Dallas Mavericks

Saturday 9 ET

There's always some fun and intrigue when it comes to a Mavs home game. Why? Two words: Mark Cuban. The flamboyant owner of the Mavericks has been best known for his occasional outburst and wacky stunt. On a lesser level, he's also been known to shake his groove thing on "Dancing With The Stars." In case you forgot about his stint on that show, you can get an autographed pic of Cuban dancing to keep as a reminder.


Indianapolis Colts at Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday 4:15 ET

This game promises to be a great QB match-up between tried and true Peyton Manning and the return of previously injured Michael Vick. With the way this NFL season has gone, this might even be a preview of the Super Bowl. But, if it's not, Indy fans out there can act like it is by wearing this 1970 Colts Championship Ring (no, we couldn't believe it was on eBay either).
