If you are following the NFL Draft, you also want to follow this list of players selected (along with their agents), which will be updated as the Draft moves along. I cannot complain with the Miami Dolphins’ pick of Ryan Tannehill. His wife is thrilled as well. Tough loss in 2OT for my hometown Florida Panthers last night, but I am really looking forward to the NBA Playoffs and hoping that the Miami Heat can make it through the tough Eastern Conference. I will be speaking at the American Bar Association Forum On The Entertainment And Sports Industries next week. If you are in South Florida, I would love to see you there. Here are some stories I missed over the past week.
