Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (7/15/2011)
I am not one for making predictions, but I have heard a lot of people guess that today would be a very important day in NFL Collective Bargaining negotiations for months. In fact, many believe that at some point today, a new deal could be reached, effectively ending the NFL Lockout. Sticking with the NFL, this job opening for Assistant Counsel, Intellectual Property looks fantastic. Big time congratulations go out to my client Jason Belmonte for winning the Best Bowler ESPY. Congrats to all other winners and their agents, as well. Last, I want to send my support out to Bruce Feldman, who used to write about college football for ESPN. Make sure to join the #FreeBruce movement on Twitter and/or ReTweet this. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
