You may have noticed that Sports Agent Blog was down for about a 24-hour period this week.  I apologize for the downtime and am glad that the site is back up and operational.  The website crashed as I was in New York moderating a performance enhancing drug panel put on by Pure Sport, which featured Jose Canseco among others.  Happy New Year to all the practicing Jews who frequent SAB.  To non-Jews, I also wish you a very sweet year.  This week on FORBES: (1) Prince Tennis Pushes New Brand Direction And Product Line As It Bounces Back From Bankruptcy; (2) Spartan Race Growing Through Participation Surge And Reebok / NBC Partnerships; and (3) Victor Cruz Enters 2013 NFL Season With New Gillette Endorsement Deal; (4) What Is The Future For The NFL Fullback?  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:

Baseball
