Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (12/11/09)

No more Gators Football Championship talk out of me.  Alabama played one heck of a game, and it was readily apparent that the multiple injuries + Dunlap’s stupid arrest held us back from putting up a serious fight.  I hate to see Nick Saban win after the way he treated the loyal Miami Dolphins fans in his former exit from South Florida, but life goes on.  Last Friday I had the opportunity to sit on an excellent “Rising Stars” panel at the Princeton Sports Symposium.  The various panels throughout the day were ripe with interesting information, there were many outstanding people that I was able to meet and network with, and overall, it was a great time.  I am excited about some football players that we are speaking with about representing in 2010 and we continue to grow our baseball and basketball divisions.  Dynasty now has a theme-song.  I found out yesterday that I am in the running to be an AXE Hair Game Changer.  I have to say, if it were not for my hair, I do not know where I would be today.  Got a second?  Vote for me.  It will ensue that I am properly gelled at all times. For all my fellow members of the Tribe, have a very Happy Hanukkah.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
