Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (11/11/2011)
It’s 11/11/11…make a wish? How about thanking a veteran? Sports labor battles are not only occurring in the United States. The Israeli women’s basketball league is currently on strike. I am already looking forward to the 2012 World Baseball Classic…if Israel is able to successfully lobby its way into the event. Kudos to Shawn Green, Brad Ausmus, and Gabe Kapler for leading the charge. Now let’s get Ryan Braun, Ian Kinsler, and Kevin Youkilis involved. I will be heading up to Philadelphia next Thursday evening for the Ivy Sports Symposium. Looking forward to seeing many of you there. Here are some stories I missed over the past week.
