Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (7/13/2012)
Yesterday was a long day of work intermingled with moving my residence from downtown Miami to Brickell. I am in love with my new apartment. Pretty dead week in actual sports. Obviously, the Freeh report is the news of the week. I heard that Judge Louis Freeh’s next project is to focus on the bounty allegations concerning the New Orleans Saints. And how about my Miami Heat? I have two new articles on Forbes.com this week: (1) Will Andy Murray/Roger Federer Wimbledon Final Reinvigorate Interest In Tennis?; and (2) New York Giants CEO John Mara: Claim That NFL Knew Concussion Long-Term Effects Is ‘Ridiculous’. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
