Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (2/10/2017)
As of yesterday, I am 32-years-old. Beyond my fiancee reminding me “how old I am,” I still feel rather young. It’s a combination of mentality as well as physical routine. And in reality, I am still young. At least I’ll keep telling myself that. This Saturday, I’m excited to serve as Keynote Speaker at the St. Thomas University School of Law’s 2017 Entertainment & Sports Symposium. I have spoken there in the past, but never as a Keynote Speaker, which is a tremendous honor. Now I just need to figure out whatever the hell I’m going to say. I’m back from seven days in Houston. It was amazing and exhausting, but I can’t complain with being able to watch a tremendous Super Bowl live.
