Has anyone see the Domino's commercial from a few weeks ago that claims Papa John's has engaged in "puffery?"

As a computer semi-illiterate, I have read very few blogs and I have just a superficial understanding of the blog format. I have, however a clearer understanding of the significance of blogs in today's technology driven news world.

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.

So you want to be a professional tennis player? And you just don’t want to be one of those players who makes it to 700th in the world, and then gets a job becoming a teaching pro at a country club ... you want to be someone special! You want to travel the world in your private jet, with all the bags of honey-roasted peanuts your heart desires!

This year has certainly been one of the more stressful in my life, not to mention one of the most exciting and scary. All in one year, I have gone from a high school senior, at the top of my game in my high school both academically and athletically … to a graduated high school student anxiously awaiting the beginning of a new chapter in his life, to a green, wet-behind-the-ears college student without much knowledge as to how things would work in this new place.

So I’m at the U.S. Open this past year, and I’m enjoying my fifth Grey Goose Honey Deuce (for those of you who don’t know, this is the official drink of the 2009 U.S. Open … at least that’s what the bartender told me as she made eye contact with the tip jar). I’m walking the grounds with a smile on my face and without a care in the world. I take that back … I’m “stumbling” around the grounds with a smile on my face and without a care in the world, but I don’t care. It’s the two weeks of the year that I have always looked forward to ever since I was a kid.

A couple of days ago, I was in a bar somewhere in New York City. This bar wasn’t your trendy, place-to-be-scene bar you see on television and in the movies. It wasn’t a bar where you have a bouncer out front that won’t let you in because you are wearing a hat. There were no long lines in front or beautiful women all decked out in short skirts and high heels. No cover charge. No bells and whistles go off when you see this place. The bar looked like the sun never shined in it. The few patrons that did inhabit it were scattered throughout on bar stools and looked as if their ex-wives took everything. This was a bar where you can think about all the mistakes that you have made in your life. This was the perfect place to be miserable at and just drown your sorrows away.

"Can you teach me how to hit a serve like Roger Federer?" I am asked that question almost on a weekly basis from a variety of students. I study the serves hit by the best professionals.

I recently participated in the inaugural Long Island Tennis Expo, hosted by Long Island Tennis Magazine at Farmingdale State College, and the USTA College Showcase held at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Both events were well-attended by hundreds of families with the intentions of having their children play collegiate tennis. The two most surprising things I learned from speaking with a multitude of parents at both locations was that many, if not most, were not aware that help was available to them through the use of a college tennis advisor.
