So the days are dwindling down as we get closer to December 23, when I am getting married. Yeah, we even have a website. I also posted a picture this past week that our marvelous photographer took during our “Engagement Shoot.” A lot goes into getting married! But before the wedding, there’s a lot more traveling to do, including two stops over the next week. First, I’m headed to Austin for my first SxSW experience. I’ll be speaking on a sports business panel (surprise, surprise). Later in the week, I’m headed to Las Vegas for an annual March trip. Let me know if you’ll be in either location! I will definitely be placing a bet on Team Israel if they’re still in the World Baseball Classic.
