Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (3/31/2017)
It’s been a couple of weeks of non-stop travel, between Austin, Las Vegas and New York. Hopefully, I get to stay around home-base for the next few weeks before heading back to New York for some more Heitner Legal-related work. Amazing game-winner against Wisconsin followed by a heartbreaking loss to South Carolina for my Florida Gators. Fortunately, I was able to take in our big-time win on the front lawn of the iconic Swamp Restaurant in Gainesville, after an amazing symposium hosted by the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Now, with the NBA season wrapping up, I’m paying a lot of attention to the Miami Heat. What a turnaround from a dismal start to the season!
