Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom!  Rosh Hashanah is right around the corner, followed by Yom Kippur.  Nothing like looking forward to a day of no eating and drinking.  How about Oregon State last night?  Looking good for the Gators.  Hopefully they aren’t too busy thing about LSU in two weeks and instead, make sure to blow out Ole Miss tomorrow.  I had a return to my undergrad days of glory last night…rough night indeed.  I don’t think you can ever get too old to enjoy a fraternity crush party.  I have been receiving a lot of calls and emails from sports management students in need of interviewing an agent.  Keep them coming, I am more than happy to help out.  Here are some stories that I did not cover this week:
