Sometimes it's fun to think that you write these posts, blogging about things you think you know about and maybe, just maybe, some of the ballers are actually reading them. Fine - not likely but weirder things have happened (right … Continue

A step closer to history was made at the Italian Open this past weekend as the Bryan Brothers picked up their eighth different Masters shield. This got me to thinking, are they two of the greatest male players of all time? They have a wider range of major titles than almost anyone. I think so, and here's why.

I attended the USTA Tennis Block Party on Saturday at the HCC Campus in Tampa, Florida. One of the events at the block party was One on One Doubles..... this is a new concept in singles play that is highly competitve, fast paced and a great workout!
Basically you play a cross court singles match using the doubles court. Serve and volley or you lose the point! (Good volley work for baseliners like me!) The founder, Ed Krass, is a Blues aficionado and pumps out the tunes during… Continue

I am very nervous about moving down to Houston, but at the same time it brings about an essence of excitement. I love the thought of venturing out to a new place full of untrodden possibilities. I have so much to look forward to. I am young and I have so much that I would like to accomplish in life before I actually decide to engrave it in stone. This is the takeoff to my new beginnning...the stretch of runway awaits my departure.
