Now is as great a time as ever to send a thanks to Full Sail University, which has been a loyal partner of Sports Agent Blog for many years.  Be sure to check out Full Sail’s sports-related course offerings and see if anything interests you or those you know.

Finally a week without travel, but unfortunately also a week without any bread, beans or oatmeal.  Such is the state of affairs whenever Passover rolls around.  There will be a worthwhile Sports Law event in Miami next week — check it out.  Lots of interesting transactional and litigation type of work down here in South Florida, so it is good to be stationed at the office for a bit.  Book sales have been strong; make sure to pick up a copy of How to Play the Game: What Every Sports Attorney Needs to Know.  This week on FORBES: (1) IBM At The Masters: A Sponsorship Unlike Any Other; (2) Sports Business Power Player Alan Zucker Moves From IMG Worldwide To Excel Sports; (3) Jordan Spieth’s Scintillating Performance Shines Spotlight On Under Armour Golf At The Masters; (4) NFL Players Able To More Successfully Sell Social Media Access With New Activate Platform; (5) Surge For 2014 World Cup Tickets Shifts To A Still Cheap Secondary Market; (6) New York Yankees Gain Sponsor Directly Tied To Derek Jeter; and (7) Report Highlights Importance Of Soccer To Hispanic Millennial Market Segment.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
