What an incredible group of inductees that went into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown over the weekend.

Think about this talented group. Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson, John Smoltz, Craig Biggio. Dick Enberg was also honored for his distinguished broadcasting career, now the voice of the Padres.

Johnson, Martinez and Smoltz were so dominant on the mound. Smoltz starred as a starter and a reliever. Then there is Biggio, who performed well at several positions. I am proud of him because he went to Seton Hall, where he still holds several records.

Congratulations to this great group of Hall of Famers.

I had a great time on Monday, speaking for Pinnacle Foods, a Fortune 1000 company. The event took place at the beautiful Chateau Elan Resort in Braselton, Georgia.

Pinnacle Foods is a producer and distributor of high-quality food products. I wanted to thank Chief Customer Officer Chris Boever for his hospitality. I also want to thank Sandi Dorer for her help in organizing the logistics of this trip.

How about a salute to Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic, Wimbledon single’s champions.

Serena won her 21st major singles title by beating a game Garbine Muguruza of Spain in the finals. She locked up the Serena Slam, holding all four major tournament titles at one time.

In tough moments, Serena used her tremendous serve to get her to the winner’s circle.

Djokovic got past Roger Federer in four sets in the men’s final. Djokovic is number one in the world for a reason, finding ways to get the job done.

Congrats to both great champions!

It was a real honor to be the guest speaker at the Raymond James Summer Development Conference at the beautiful Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Fl.

The crowd featured their top advisors, as over 700 were in attendance and their theme that they celebrated was “The Future is Now”. There were three concepts that they wanted to achieve. Reward their best advisors, networking, and educate on the latest concepts in technology.

It was a pleasure to be introduced by their COO, Tom Walrond. I cant thank President, Tash Elwyn, enough and Christine Hartman who was invaluable.

NBA free agency is under way and it has been absolutely wacky already. The piles of George Washingtons changing hands has been incredible.

On the first day alone, owners spent over $1.4 billion in deals. That’s billions with a B, baby!

You need a scorecard to keep track. DeAndre Jordan surprised some by leaving the Clippers to join the Mavericks. Greg Monroe turned down the Knicks and Lakers, going to the small market Milwaukee Bucks. Monta Ellis left Dallas and landed with the Pacers. Paul Pierce headed west, signing with the Clippers. Tyson Chandler ended up in Phoenix. Knicks fans should be thrilled with Arron Afflalo and Robin Lopez. Hmm.

Several players signed max deals to return to their teams, or long-term deals like Anthony Davis of the Pelicans and Kawhi Leonard of the Spurs. Dwyane Wade returned to Miami with a one-year deal.

If you think it is crazy now, wait until next year when the new NBA television deal goes into effect. The dollars tossed around then will be even wackier.
