I came across a couple of good items in the Sunday New York Times. First, David V. Johnson writes about Tennis players. How come basketball players get bashed for specializing in their sport but no one says a thing about tennis players? Come on, you know who you are, explain to me why no one says anything or writes on their blog or their books about how these kids stop attending school at 14 to pursue their life long dream of becoming a professional tennis player at 16. Not to mention the 6 hours per day they put in trying to get better at the age of 10?
“You really need to start thinking about home schooling,” Smith, a coach for the United States Tennis Association, told Mkrtchian, 15. “You have a lot of potential, but the problem of going to a strict school is that you’re going to fall behind.”
Come on professional bloggers, go after the tennis kids like you do American basketball players.

I said this in another article but my priest, we sat down and talked about everything that happened and one of the things he told me was that before priests become bishops oftentimes they take a year’s sabbatical and they have to study and rest and pray and prepare themselves. That’s the way that I’ve taken this year. I know Coach Coughlin did it, took a year off. I read where he went around to a lotof places and studied.
