The Boston Marathon bombing was shocking, disappointing and sad.  My thoughts and prayers are with the families of anyone who was killed or injured in the attack.  There have been excellent columns written about the atrocities, and I implore you to scour the web to read some of them.  Shifting gears.  A couple of nights ago I moderated a “Baseball and the Law” panel at Penn State Law school.  It was a fantastic event and I thank the law school for inviting me to participate.  This week on Forbes: (1) Jay-Z’s Partnership With CAA And Recruitment Of Victor Cruz Has Agents Crying Foul; (2) Ultra Music Festival: Smashing Records And Global Expansion; (3) CAA And Lagardère Eyeing Sports Expansion With IMG Worldwide On The Market; (4) Adam Scott’s Masters Tournament Win Will Bring Back Belly Putter Debate; (5) IMG Worldwide Purchases Golf Management Company As Talks Of Sale Continue; (6) Myck Kabongo’s Choice Of Basketball Agent Should Be Of No Surprise; and (7) San Francisco Giants Lead All MLB Teams In Fan Engagement.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
