First, I have to thank the Miami Heat for scheduling a great slate of games on my birthday weekend.  Between a game against the Clippers tonight, my birthday tomorrow, and the Lakers vs. Heat on Sunday, this is sure to be a fun filled number of days.  Articles this past week on Forbes.com include: (1) Value Of Super Bowl Branding In And Around The Mercedes-Benz Superdome; (2) Super Bowl Prop Bets That Provide Plenty Of Entertainment; (3) Tide’s Super Bowl Campaign Is A Winner; (4) Department Of Justice Steps Into Fight Over Sports Gambling In New Jersey; (5) National Signing Day: From Fax Machines To Digital Recruiting; and (6) Stop Calling Chris Culliver A Bigot.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
