So we wrap up the week of Lance Armstrong and Manti Te’o.  Sure, there were other sports-related stories (and many are linked to, below), but they took a backseat to the two aforementioned athletes.  Also, Mazel Tov to Marc Trestman, the new head coach of the Chicago Bears, who is a graduate of the University of Miami’s law school and now the only Jewish coach in the National Football League.  On Forbes this past week: (1) John Starks And Rick Barry Believe And Invest In Basketball Shoes With Ankle Support Technology; (2) NASCAR And Hewlett-Packard Are Driving Innovation With New Fan And Media Engagement Center; (3) The Business Of Colin Kaepernick; (4) Lance Armstrong’s Statement Unlikely To Turn Former Sponsors Into Litigants; (5) Disappointed Fan’s Lawsuit Against San Antonio Spurs Puts “Benefit Of The Bargain” To Task; (6) Bellator MMA Set To Air On Spike TV With Surplus Of Sponsors In Place; and (7) New Public Relations Trip Up Turns Manti Te’o Hoax Into The Latest Notre Dame Disaster.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
