I hope everybody had a lovely Valentine’s Day.  I am looking forward to head up to New York next week to speak at the 4th Annual New York Law School Sports Law Symposium.  Slight change: I will be speaking on the Concussion Litigation panel as opposed to the Negotiating Media Rights Acquisitions Panel.  I will still be sitting on the Breaking Into The Sports Industry Panel, as well.  Heavy dose of football links in this week’s wrap-up.  Before we get to that, on Forbes.com this week, I wrote: (1) Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Offers Big Bumps To Featured Brands; (2) Sochi Winter Olympics: The State Of The USOC One Year From 2014 Games; (3) LeBron James Reminds The World That He Is Not Michael Jordan; and (4) Is It the NHL’s Turn to Make Drastic Rule Changes to Thwart Brain Injuries?  And now, the wrap-up:
