- Become a professionally ranked tennis player.
My uncle Paul wanted to become John McEnroe as a teen, and we've disagreed for years over whether I could become ranked if I devoted myself to tennis instead of web surfing and fatty foods.
I figured if the rankings went low enough -- the ATP Tour goes to 1307 -- I might have a shot.
Paul thinks I'm an idiot, but I haven't given up the dream. At the very least, I might draw a match somewhere against a ranked pro who had to withdraw due to injury or illness.
