Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (7/8/2016)

It still stings. I have justified the loss of Dwyane Wade as a wise business decision for the Miami Heat organization, but I spent 13 years of my life rooting for him as he wore a Heat jersey. I am one of the rare born-and-raised South Floridians. I cheer for the Miami Dolphins and Miami Heat every year and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Picturing Wade in a Bulls uniform gives me the chills, and not in a good way.
