Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (8/4/2017)
Well it’s been one hell of a week. The El Clasico Miami was an awesome event and my buddy Daniel Sillman did a great job as host. It is clear that Miami is a great host city for international soccer matches. Then, on Monday, I closed on a new house and home office, which is when the fun really began. There is no joy in moving and painting and organizing. There is also no fun in becoming a landlord for your other home, which I just became for the first time in my life. Headaches galore, but they all say it’s worth it in the end. I can tell you that the views of my new home make the bags under my eyes justifiable under the circumstances.
