Rough week for inhabitants of Miami, Florida. Hayley Mick of The Globe and Mail asked me for my thoughts on the trade between the Marlins and the Blue Jays. A business decision is a business decision. Let’s move on. This week I was very active on Forbes.com. Here are the stories I published: (1) Why Jerry Jones Still Hasn’t Sold Naming Rights To Cowboys Stadium; (2) Buffalo Bills Sued For Sending Too Many Text Messages To Subscribers; (3) Annual Ping-Pong Tournament Brings Sports Stars Together To Support Youth Education in NYC; (4) The Livestrong Foundation Will Live On Despite Lance Armstrong’s Demise; and (5) NASCAR Sponsor Mars, Inc. Thrilled With Partnership; Boasts 4-to-1 Return On Investment. And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
