Roger Federer

A lot of people close to me know that I am a huge sports fan. I love all kinds of sports and I do follow all  American sports very closely. I admire a lot of our professional athletes but there only are a handful that I admire greatly - and they are Tom Brady, Kobe Bryant, Roger Federer, and Josh Hamilton. These guys were on my list back in 2007 and they still are as we approach 2013. Nothing has changed except for more glory, MVPs, and championships won. They are still at the top of their respective sport. As far as my number one favorite athlete goes it's close between Tom Brady and Roger Federer, but Roger wins hands down because of what's he's doing now at age 31.

It would be very difficult for me to rank these guys, but I have Roger Federer as #1 because he returned to the world's number one ranking at age 31. Anyone who follows Tennis knows that it's a young person's game and it's virtually impossible to dominate the sport as long as Federer has. A guy like Federer comes around once in a life. He's that rare and to be able to watch him play at an elite level is why I love sports so much.

You can say the same about Tiger Woods and his talent, but Golf is a different breed. You can play until well into retirement so time is on your side. With tennis, time is not your ally. Federer realizes this and you can see it in his eyes how much he loves the game and how much he wants to keep on excelling against all odds. You cant help but to root for him. It's like watching a movie, but it's real life. That's what sports is about.

P.S If you happen to be in New York, you should attend the US Open. It's a great event that just started tonight and will run until September 9.

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree. I told my mom, my aunt, my dad and basically everyone on my social media. I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.



Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
