Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (12/2/2010)
It was painful to be at Doak Campbell Stadium while the Florida Gators got destroyed by the Florida State Seminoles. And then we get beat by the University of Central Florida in basketball. It just is not the year for Gator sports. I went to my first Miami Heat game of the season this week. The rumors are true; the Heat are not filling up the stands. But how about that Heat performance last night in Cleveland? Want my thoughts on the lack of punishment for Cam Newton? Follow me on Twitter. I tweeted a whole lot about my thoughts on the matter. I booked my flight to New Orleans for the beginning of February. I will be judging the Tulane Baseball Arbitration Competition and speaking at its mini-symposium along with an amazing group of people in the business of baseball. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- Not in the article, but apparently Marbury did not have a signed contract with his former CBA team [Ex-NBA player Marbury switches teams in China].
- Looking forward to seeing what becomes of Sportsality [Keyon Dooling Talks Business].
- 6’3 at 11-years-old, but it still doesn’t feel right [Baylor Offers a Scholarship to 8th-Grader Adrian Moore].
- A minor-league posting system for non-protected players [Something to think about from Scott Boras].
- Keith Law defends Scott Boras’ loans to Edward Salcedo [Boras playing by baseball’s rules].
