Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (9/25/09)

We are one week into the Jewish New Year.  I hope everyone had a fantastic Rosh Hashanah.  Now comes the fun holiday…Yom Kippur begins on Sunday night.  Load up on those carbs before sundown!  I am down in South Florida for the weekend.  I’m enjoying it with my family and girlfriend.  I’ll also stop by and hang out with Pete Parise for a bit.  I have a surprise for him now that he finished his fantastic season.  I’m hoping that the Gators can remain undefeated and that the Fins will pick up their first win.  Wishful thinking the second half of that sentence.  Anyway, here are some stories I missed over the past week.
