Sorry for the absence the past couple of weeks, but I was busy exploring South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia and Botswana with my newly minted wife as we thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon. It was a trip full of animal viewing (we got to see the “Big Five” — lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard — and much more), went to the top of Table Mountain, viewed Victoria Falls and so much more than that. I think I’m fully recharged after the wedding and honeymoon, and ready to attack 2018 with vigor. I really disconnected from politics and sports while I was gone, but saw updates about which teams were advancing in the NFL playoffs. Anyway, here are some sports biz stories over the past week:

Football

Baseball

Soccer
