Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (4/30/2010)
Woohoo! As of 3:43 p.m. yesterday, I was officially done with law school. Technically, I am not a law school graduate until May 14, but as long as I don’t have to step foot into the Levin College of Law’s library for the next couple of weeks, I’ll take it! The next two weeks will be nice, but then it will be time to buckle down again and start preparing for the two-day Florida Bar Exam, which is offered at the very end of July. Only a little over a month until the MLB First-Year Player Draft. We are deep into preparations on the guys that are being advised by Dynasty. All of you who dream of Ari Gold venturing into sports may soon get your wish. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- It’s nice when you have the luxury of limiting your rookie client list to six names, all of whom are picked in the first round [NFL Draft: Financial Winners & Losers].
- While Pat Dye Jr. graduated from Auburn, he racked up rival Alabama’s pro prospects for the draft [Alabama players turn to Dye Jr. as agent].
- Agents have little-to-no control on draft day – before and after is when the real work is put in [Draft weekend for agents].
- Bryce Harper is certainly talented, but his makeup has some people concerned [Future Shock].
- Don’t forget that these agencies also make money advising players for the draft [Which Agency Had The Biggest Offseason?].
- More black executives, less black players [Study: MLB gets ‘A’ for racial hiring].
