Can you feel the Heat down in your soul? I was the guest speaker for a Middle School graduation yesterday. That was quite the experience. I am so tired of people saying that the Miami Heat play in South Beach. This article was rather refreshing to read. This week on FORBES: (1) Seth Jones Headlines Group Of New Reebok-CCM Hockey Endorsers; (2) New San Francisco 49ers Stadium Will Be Referred To As Field Of Jeans?; (3) DeSean Jackson Rumored To Be Interested In Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports; (4) Could Point 3 Become The World’s Best Basketball Apparel Company?; and (5) Heat Vs. Spurs NBA Finals Tickets Moderately Priced, Especially In San Antonio. As always, the weekly wrap-up:
