Every year, I love going to the Big Apple to spend time at the U. S. Open tennis tournament. 

It is always great to see the biggest names in tennis in action. Watching Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova is a treat. And it was extra special having my family there in attendance.

I also got to enjoy great dinners and a trip to Broadway. It is always a fun time in New York City, baby!

The NFL preseason is under way. Let's face reality; the prices for these games are a rip-off.

I wish the league would play two preseason games, but they make too much money to cut it back. You won't see much of big names like Tom Brady and many players in these games won't make the active roster to start the season.

So don't put too much stock in these games. You want your players to stay healthy,
