My wife Lorraine and I were thrilled to share a day with Kristen and Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants.

Baseball superstar, Buster, is an MVP, Rookie of The Year, and three time world series champ with the Giants. I am honored he has united with me to raise money for kids battling cancer.

We spent the day at UCSB Benioff Children's Hospital where we got the opportunity to share words with a number of youngsters and pass out gifts. We gave away autographed basketballs and baseballs to the youngsters and their families.

Tonight Buster and I host a Gala at the AT&T ball park where we hope to raise a quarter of a million dollars for pediatric cancer research. Its been great sharing time with Buster who is an MVP both on and off the diamond.

I had a great time as guest speaker at St. Charles Prep School in Bexley, Ohio. I met so many outstanding students as I had the opportunity to speak in front of over 600.

It is a quality school that was established in 1923. 99% of every class goes on to to college and the discipline and work ethic from the young students is amazing.

I got a chance to meet some outstanding people including the principal, James Lower.

I also had the opportunity to speak at a banquet, which was a fundraiser for the school, to raise money for kids in need. Lorraine and I had an absolutely great time at St charles Prep. Thank you to all!

I am a big fan of tennis. My two daughters played in college ay Notre Dame. I love the sport and I really enjoy attending the U. S. Open.

You get to see the biggest names in the sport, up close and personal. Whether it is Serena Williams or Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray or Venus Williams, the big names are right in front of you. Catch them on the court at Ashe or even on the practice courts.

It is great to see the emotion of the sport in person. There were a lot of great matches while I was in attendance. I also enjoyed meeting a lot of avid sports fans. Flushing Meadow is a great venue and I had a blast at the Open!

The first full weekend of college football should be very special. California and Hawaii started the season last weekend, and there are eight marquee match-ups on tap for Labor Day weekend.

Think about the importance of some of these games. A loss could really hurt, though with so many teams playing competitive openers, you could see a team in the final four with a couple of losses.

USC takes on Alabama down in Arlington, Texas Heisman winner Derrick Henry is gone, but Nick Saban has lots of talent. Oklahoma and QB Baker Mayfield take on Houston. The Cougars would love to score a big win for the AAC.

UCLA meets Texas A&M, LSU battles Wisconsin, Clemson meets Auburn, Georgia faces North Carolina, Notre Dame battles Texas and Mississippi meets Florida State.

Wow, what a weekend.

I know there has been a lot of talk about San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick and his decision to protest during the national anthem.

He has a right to his opinion, but please respect the Flag as many of color have lost their lives protecting our freedoms. There are plenty of forums to express his opinion, but disrespecting the red, white and blue is not the answer.
