Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (5/8/09)

I am back home in Hollywood, FL. enjoying a little time off from school and working hard as ever on existing and new business opportunities.  If you trust me to read one article, read this one.  It is amazingly inspiring and a terrific piece.  So, I own stock in Blackberry (RIMM).  It has received a nice boost as of late.  Interestingly, its CEO offering to buy the Phoenix Coyotes.  Don’t forget that this Sunday is Mother’s Day.  Make sure to show your mommas and baby mommas some love.  Want to follow some sports agents on Twitter?  Check out the current short list.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:


  • Think people would shower in Strasburg’s sweat at this point? Lots of love being thrown around and he hasn’t pitched an inning of professional baseball yet [The kid named Strasburg]
  • I have to hand it to this guy for his persistence. Good luck paying back those loans! [‘I never saw it as hanging on’]
