Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (11/6/09)

Come to at 1:00 p.m. EST on Monday, Nov. 9.  We will be running a contest with some giveaways that you won’t want to miss.  The Gators finally showed their skill last weekend.  Next up, Vandy.  It is also my fraternity’s Alumni Weekend.  It will be nice to see many of the guys I spent a lot of time with as an undergrad.  I turned in a 24-page paper today.  It was chock full of footnotes (92 total to be exact).  I will be adding to it over the next week and then most likely submitting it to a few law reviews.  It is concerning the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), which is basically an anti-sports betting statute.  It’s much more than that, but I guess that is why I was able to discuss it in 24-pages.  Anyway, I am glad to have that monkey off of my back.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
