Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (9/4/09)
I have to start by quickly thanking Mizuno for a huge shipment of spikes and training shoes, and Swenson Baseball for sending some high quality gloves to a few of Dynasty’s baseball clients. Our boys are enjoying the equipment and showing it off as they put an end to their successful professional seasons. Is everybody excited for the start of college football? I am pumped to be in Gainesville, and hoping that the Gators bring home another National Championship trophy. I am two weeks through my final year of law school…it doesn’t even seem like it has started yet. Before I get to the stories, I have to give some props to a two-time All American, Super Bowl champion, sports agent, first President of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and member of the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, Bob Stein. Okay, here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- You don’t have to be against “education” to be against “one-and-done” [Would amateur reform and a return to Frosh ineligibility help?].
- We will have to continue to wait and see whether the court believes paying creditors off is worth more than heeding the unanimous vote of NHL owners [Judge says Balsillie should reconsider deadline].
- Regarding the Mets moving 75 prospects from Florida to the Dominican Republic [Mets Say Moving Prospects Is About Sense, Not Money].
- A great piece to show all of your baseball clients, no matter what level they are at [Psychological issues are no longer taboo].
- Why first round picks should think long and hard before deciding to reject a team’s final offer [Always A Gamble].
- A quiet and easy agreement made without the use of an agent [Williams signs with Dolphins through ’10].
- Philip Rivers signed a very nice looking contract [Under the Cap: 2004 QB Class Cashes In].
- For now, everybody is in a holding pattern [Sports Agent Donald Dell Says Sponsorship Will Recover in 2010].
