The state of Florida received some magic this morning when it Hurricane Fay was downgraded to a tropical storm, meaning that rain will still flood many towns, but the wind will not be devastating. As I write this post, the storm is actually just south of Orlando, where Jameer Nelson plays his professional ball. Lucky for him, he is hosting his Third Annual Building Magic week at Summit Sports Training Center in Villanova, PA and there is no threat of cancellation due to Hurricane force winds.

Building Magic week’s mission is to bring the Orlando Magic organization closer together in the offseason by having a week full of workouts, team-building activities, and other events. Tomorrow is Media Day, so anyone in the Villanova area looking to get some interviews can head to the Summit Sports Training Center starting at 9 a.m. EST.

A good friend of mine and noted expert on the business of sports, Marc Isenberg, will be speaking at 10:30 a.m. EST on Thursday. If you are unable to hear him speak at any of the college sports symposiums that he frequents (including University of Florida’s) and are in the region, I suggest you go check him out.
