I started with Yahoo Voices in May 2014. They are shutting down July 31, 2014. My timing is always perfect.Facebook page for that tho. I bought a $25 online screenwriting class from James Franco. Amazon has a self publishing service I might look into. I found an article that inspired me to hang out for a day or two on eLance. The internet is a great medium for great literature. Yahoo Voices along with many other yahoo products gives me an avenue to explore and contribute. Thank you Yahoo Voices. It was a short lived relationship, but it was an awesome discovery for me for other possibilities.

Originally published on YahooVoices on May 16, 2014Rafael Nadal have been veritable shoe ins for winning any and all of the 4 major tournaments. Roger and Rafa have lost their grip on The Austrailian Open, French Open, Wimblendon, and The US Open. Everyone who is anyone in the ATP has lost to one or both of them sometime in their career in the past ten years or so. In the past 4 years you can add Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray to the short list of shoe ins for the final 4 standing at these tournaments. These superstars have an international appeal that transcends the sport. All four of these guys are still expected to win at these tournaments, but it is no longer a given...especially since Stanislas Wawrinka took home the trophy this year in Australia, the first major of the year. Stan represents the field both young and old who are popping up in final stages of tournaments where they haven't been before in their short or long careers. It is very inspiring to watch for some. But how could it affect the masses of fans who came to see Roger? Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are being asked at every turn if their tennis will ever be the same again? It's no wonder the greats from the past seemed to retire early! Each of these guys could probably play tennis forever if they didn't have to answer really really stupid questions over and over again. Why yes. Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lenl. Heard of them? They have finally followed John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg out onto the senior tour...Thanks to Jim Courier and his Inside Out production genius there is a senior tour where these geezers compete and draw thousands of spectators. When you think about Rafa's or Roger's fan base their potential for exhibitions or alternative competitive play outside the ATP could be pretty tantalizing for many venues. Both the ATP and WTA have founders who are active in promoting the sport. But change is inevitable. In America there isn't a lot of interest in tennis especially as a spectator sport. In California both the San Jose Open and the Los Angeles Open have shut down after decades of distinguished championship play. Avid players aren't necessarily watchers of tennis and random TV watchers aren't likely to find tennis as they channel surf in the USA. The networks who hold the rights to the final stages of the major tournaments don't even play the matches live! Whether it is a changing of the guard or not, Stan's win in Australia makes the standings shifts way more than just a blip on the screen. There is some tennis to be played this year! The draws are going to make a bigger difference now. Dangerous floaters are numerous in every round. Time to stock up on popcorn for Summer tennis viewing :)

Solvang Anyone? a Girl Can DreamCasey Candaele or Napoleon Kaufman could be in the stands and on the grounds for photo ops. Who knows maybe sometimes local Jimmy Connors would play. With his clout we could round up some old timers and do a ProAm or a legends exhibition. With the courts we have right now at Ryan Park we may have to build a few courts, but that is just a formality. A town the size of Lompoc is under-served in tennis courts. Advocating tennis at the highest level makes sense. Kids days are always on at ATP events. Sponsors will adore Lompoc. We have rocket scientists and we are a mecca for the mentally and chemically disabled. Not a well known fact perhaps, but the Special Olympics and organizations such as LOVARC and VTC are organizations that larger corporate sponsors love to be associated with. Scheduling is a whole nutter kettle of fish. American experts such as John McEnroe and Justin Gimelstop have been screaming for years for the American tennis market to come up with new and different formats that would appeal the home of Baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie crowd. Tennis has to find a way to be as sexy as an NFL Monday Night Football games. With the history and traditions that are kept in many longstanding tennis events the international flavor of the game could be lost in America. But we don't care...remember we are Americans after all. Lompoc is the best city on the central coast to host the next new ATP World Tour event. Anyone who has driven from Los Angeles to San Francisco will always wish they could go back to the Jalama Coast. Solvang has all the tourist appeal too. Tourist Central Coast dot org here I come!!
Does John McEnroe Have Any Answers?
