My niece is getting Bat Mitzvahed this Sunday, which means it is time to celebrate (and start realizing that I am not as young as I think).   Greg Oden is back on the basketball court and playing for the Miami Heat.  Can’t say that is a statement I thought I would be making a year ago.  The Jewish athlete is back, baby!  Apologies for the brief down-time Sports Agent Blog experienced early this week, and many thanks to Craig Brissell who got us back up and running.  This week on FORBES: (1) Chelsea’s Samuel Eto’o Is Wealthiest Foreign-Born English Premier League Player, With Net Worth Of $64M; (2) Alex Rodriguez Will Fight On After Suspension Reduced From 211 To 162 Games; (3) Court Denies Preliminary Approval Of $760 Million NFL Concussion Settlement; (4) Smithfield Foods Increases Investment In Richard Petty Motorsports As Part Of Three-Year Extension; and (5) Jay Z Brings CC Sabathia Into La Familia.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
