This week’s Friday Wrap-up is heavy on Joe Flacco’s agent, Joe Linta, who publicly called the Baltimore Ravens “dumb”. This is probably my favorite time of the year, especially in recent past with the Miami Heat dominating the NBA. Last night’s game was a blast to witness in person. This week on FORBES: (1) Music Streaming Service Supplies Upbeat Playlists For The Fitness Freak; (2) Pacers And Racers: Indy 500 And Indiana Pacers Promote Each Other On Big Day For Indianapolis; and (3) Mobile App Connects Sports Fans In The Crowd And On The Couch. And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
