Quick trip to Los Angeles, but I’m back in Miami for the rest of the week.  August 9 is my half-birthday.  People celebrate that, right?  At the end of next week I will be traveling to Detroit to moderate a NASCAR panel.  I’ve never been to Detroit, so I’m looking forward to the trip.  This week on FORBES: (1) Johnny Manziel Shows Off Marketing Muscle With New Endorsement Deal; (2) Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier Brawl Bruises UFC’s Educational Crusade; (3) Baseball Agency Blows Up Standard Agent Commission Model; (4) The Battle Of Online Vs. Land-Based Casinos.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:

Football
