Not many Shabbat Shalom wrap-ups before the start of a new year.  Where did the time fly?  But before a new year comes a wealth of football, including some Thanksgiving Thursday match-ups next week.  I was at UNC-Chapel Hill last weekend to celebrate their homecoming.  Beautiful place, but boy was it cold outside!  Stay in South…

JR Rickert is the CEO of JR Sports Enterprises, LLC based and the former co-owner of National Sports Management.

Had a fantastic time in New York last weekend.  Spent all day Sunday chowing down on Mark Schlereth’s delicious creations while watching football at DIRECTV’s FantasyZone in Soho.  Life could have been worse for those few hours.  Today, I am off to Raleigh, North Carolina and will get to experience UNC for the first time…

Another week, another trip.  This Saturday I am off to New York City.  I hear that Sidebar is the spot to go to watch the Florida Gators game at night, so if you are in town you should feel free to stop by and watch the team that dominated Georgia last week.  I am also…

Happy Halloween.  I still need to find a good costume; you are never too old to dress up!  Another week of traveling, and it should remain that way until the end of the year.  However, I am not complaining.  Staying busy and having fun works for me.  In only about four months time, Heitner Legal…

A photo I took while playing the golf course at Keswick Hall.

This weekly wrap-up is coming to you from Keswick Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia, where the terrain is beautiful and the golf is a blast.  The food is not bad either.  Between the PGA National in West Palm Beach and Keswick Hall in Charlottesville and four days of golf in the past week, I am pretty…

Well I officially dismiss football from everything in my life.  The Florida Gators and Miami Dolphins proved their inability to win when it matters and choked in the final seconds of their respective games.  What is the cure?  Hopefully a weekend of golfing will help.  This week on FORBES: (1) Sports-Specific Crowdfunding Concept Created For Athletes…

Hello from sunny Gainesville, Florida.  I promise myself that I will take at least one trip to my alma mater (undergrad and law) per year.  This weekend is it.  The Florida Gators take on LSU Saturday night, which I predict will be a low scoring, defensive match-up.  Hopefully my Gators come away with a victory.…

Rosh Hashanah behind us and we get to look forward to Yom Kippur starting tonight (oh joy!).  To those of you observing, I wish you an easy fast.  Looks like the NFL Draft is moving to Chicago in 2015.  It’s been a busy first three months for South Florida-based HEITNER LEGAL, and the work is…

Floyd Mayweather may be making some changes with his team of execs.

Ever remember a crazier week for the NFL?  People are calling for Roger Goodell’s head, players are getting held out of games and practice but still earning paychecks and every day it seems like there’s a new domestic violence announcement.  After a terrible Thursday night game, can’t wait for Sunday to roll along.  And there’s…
