My wife Lorraine and I really had a great time in Charleston South Carolina as the guest of Tech Data Corporation, the largest company in the state of Florida. I was the guest speaker at their event honoring their top clients throughout the nation. It was a very special meeting.

I really enjoyed the people I met including Bob Dutkowsky and wife Lorraine. I also met Tom Richards and his wife Mary Beth who are big in the world of basketball as well as the technology world. Tom was a star card for the University of Pittsburgh and his son Jason played for Davidson College with Stephen Curry who is now an NBA super star.

It was great to be introduced and I really appreciated the introduction by Marty Bauerlein, Senior Vice President of US Sales for Tech Data Corporation. Marty has now utilized me for five different corporate events speaking to various groups within their organization.

The event Friday night was first class in every way, as they had a dinner party at the beautiful Geddes Museum in Charleston South Carolina. My friends, it is great breaking bread with such outstanding successful people who just understand -#1 how to make the most of everyday.

I spoke to them about the Game Of Life, about perusing your dreams and goals to the best of your ability. I can tell you, that audience was filled with greatness.

That is why they play the games. Excitement, baby! That is why we wtahc every week.

The NFL is under way and several teams stand out already.

The Steelers are 2-0 and looking good on both sides of the ball. LeVeon Bell will get better and better. The defense has been solid.

The Ravens have been outstanding on defense too. Baltimore beat the Bengals and Browns, so the jury may still be out.

The Bucs got out of the gate well with a big win over the Bears. Tampa Bay will win at least 10 games this season.

,The Bears, Browns, Bengals and Saints are among 0-2 teams struggling early.

It was a great weekend for sports fans.

Sloane Stephens and Rafael Nadal won U. S. Open tennis championships. Stephens was ranked in the 900s earlier this year; what an amazing story to win. Nadal won his second slam tourney of the year.

College football had many exciting games and great performances. Lamar Jackson of Louisville put up more big numbers against North Carolina. Baker Mayfield had a brilliant second half in a big win at Ohio State. USC played well against Stanford. Clemson's defense dominated against Auburn. Notre Dame played with energy but came up short vs. Georgia.

The NFL kicked off with the Chiefs stunning the Patriots. Green Bay got past Seattle. The Ravens pitched a shutout against the Bengals. The Rams were big winners over the Colts. 

The Cleveland Indians rolled on in baseball.

I am also thinking about everyone in Florida affected by Hurricane Irma. Bless you all.
