Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/15/2018)
Happy Father’s Day to all the papas celebrating this Sunday. While my Florida Gators have had a few down years in football and basketball, they continue their dominance in baseball. Congrats to the reigning champions on making a fourth consecutive trip to Omaha for the College World Series. The Gators flag is blowing proudly at the front of my house.
