Last night, I was sitting on my futon, watching what my DVR recorded during the day. There was this show on the Discovery Channel about a guy who gets dropped off in the middle of the Amazon and has to survive and eventually, find a way out.

The holiday season has come and gone, and that means that the tennis season is essentially over. It has become cold and has started to snow; outdoor play has become somewhat unlikely. Leagues and other players flood the indoor courts, which makes it hard to get regular hitting sessions.
