I interviewed Leigh Steinberg on Wednesday. We were only supposed to talk for 20 minutes. Instead, it took an hour and 20 minutes before the conversation was over. I look forward to posting the interview late Sunday night. Subscribers get to see it first, right when it’s posted, so stop stalling…subscribe now. Besides that, I am done with 2 of my 3 Spring semester finals (goodbye Contracts and Civil Procedure). That means that there is only 1 test left (Property) before you can officially refer to me as a 2L. The headaches from my concussion are starting to subside and my overall health is beginning to improve. Still no taste or smell, but I am keeping up hope! Anyway, here are some stories that I missed this past week:
