Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (5/20/2016)
Phil Mickelson is making a lot of headlines right now. Apparently the pro golfer made a lot of money off of an insider tip and used the money received to pay off some betting debts. Let’s see how the PGA Tour reacts to that news. The NFL Pro Bowl is purportedly moving from Hawaii to Orlando. I’m not sure of the rationale on that move. I’m hanging around South Florida this weekend and then off to Italy from Tuesday-Sunday of next week. Our amazing contributors will keep this site active in the meantime.
