Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (11/10/2017)

I made it back from a week trip to Turkey for the Turkish Airlines Open and I am still quite jetlagged. I'm also currently in Costa Rica, where I'm celebrating my bachelor party with 11 of my closest friends. I don't think I have any more trips planned (other than

As Hurricane Irma makes its way through the Caribbean Islands and approaches the State of Florida, potentially affecting other states as well, I hope and pray that everyone is safe and that the worst of damage is to properties, and not anyone's health. Please make sure that you have taken

Sorry ladies, I'm off the market. Last Thursday, at Thanksgiving dinner, I dropped to one knee and proposed to my then-girlfriend. Thankfully she said yes. Let the wedding planning commence! This weekend I'm sticking in Fort Lauderdale, but I'm off to Las Vegas the following weekend for one of my

Another busy week in the books. And another heart-breaker of a loss for the Miami Dolphins, a team that is 0-2 and somehow is the biggest favorite on the board this week (sure, it is the Browns, but still). I was in Las Vegas last weekend and had a quick

I hope everyone had a very Happy Holiday (whichever holiday was celebrated) and wish all a Happy upcoming New Year. This past week on (1) Who Cares About The NHL Lockout?; and (2) Brooklyn Nets Nix Avery Johnson, But Player Contracts May Cause Concern.  New Years Eve will be Sports Agent

No more replacement refs!  How long until spectators start complaining about the old fashioned NFL referees?  On that note, I had a couple of articles on Forbes that touched on the referee drama: 1) NFL Replacement Referees Have Compromised The Game's Integrity And League's Position On Sports Betting; and 2)

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (6/1/2012)

I am certainly going to be paying attention to the formation of Israel’s National Baseball Squad.  I hope Shawn Green blasts some homers in the World Baseball Classic.  Perhaps I should send Ian Kinsler a personal letter requesting that he shows his pride by joining the team.  I have two
