Unbelievable Sunday - Federer Defies Age and Winter is Here

Most of the time when I write posts like this its because Jenn and I have gone out for brunch, or to a wine festival, or something out of our norm. But this past Sunday (July 16th) was actually a pretty average Sunday. It wasn't a particularly pretty day in Newport, nor was there anything major planned for the day. But by 7 AM it was clear, Roger Federer was about to defy age and reason once again.

Just Got Done Drafting My 2014 Fantasy Baseball Team

I've been involved with Fantasy Sports since I can remember. I used to just watch my dad as a kid pick his football team every year and track the stats on TV and in the paper the next morning. Oh the days before the internet. As I got older I got my own fantasy football team and even joined him in a fantasy baseball league as well. I've never won either of them, and I'm not sure this year will be any different, but I'm pretty happy with how I drafted.

A Quick Day of Golf With Jake

So Jake came over for the weekend and we decided to go play a quick round of 9 holes at Newport Beach Golf Course a Par 3 style course with a few Par 4 holes to let us drive a few times. It was a lot of fun and we decided to take some video of us playing to see how bad our strokes are. Have fun with the videos I am sure you will be making as much fun of us as we made fun of each other.

Federer Wins His 15th Grand Slam Title

What a day in sports. As many of you probably know by now I am a huge tennis fan. Last year I was lucky enough to be in London during the finals of Wimbledon getting engaged, so I was lucky enough to miss the the 5 setter with Nadal taking out Federer. Today's match between Roger Federer and Andy Roddick was just as epic as last years match if not even more so. Watching Roddick hold serve for 4 straight hours without letting the best player of all time break him was beyond impressive.

Federer Has Just Been Crowned The Best Tennis Player of All Time

I remember at the beginning of 2009 joking around saying that Federer was going to win the French Open, never really thinking he would, as much as I would have liked him to. With the field opening up as Nadal was ousted early on in the tournament all eyes then focused on Federer to see if he could finally take hold on the one trophy that he still had not yet hoisted that of the winner of the French Open. That all changed this morning when Federer was dubbed the King of Tennis as he easily pulled out his first French Open title. Not only has he tied Pete Sampras with 14 majors but he also did something Pete never was able to accomplish and that is win a career grand slam. In my opinion there is no question that Federer is now the King of Tennis. Go Fed Go!

Tiger Woods Just Keeps Getting Better! Another Huge Putt at the Arnold Palmer Invitational!

There is nothing like watching Tiger Woods playing on a Sunday in contention. Only Tiger Woods is in contention when he starts a round five strokes back and still everyone thinks he is going win. I decided with Tiger in the prowl on a Sunday I would sit down and watch the final round at Bay Hill. You may remember my post from this time last year, "Tiger Woods Does it Again" where Tiger putted the amazing winning birdie on 18. Well Tiger had that same opportunity this year, and guess what, he did it again! Tiger Woods is hands down the most exciting athlete to watch. After having knee surgery, he is back like he had never left at all.
