Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (1/29/2010)

We are currently live from the 2010 UF Sports Law Symposium.  Click here to watch the live stream of the event.  There’s no other way to celebrate the completion of the event other than a nightcap at my favorite Gainesville restaurant, Dragonfly.  See some of you there?  Next Wednesday I will be making the trek down to South Florida for Super Bowl related events.  I will be kicking it off at the Moves Magazine party on Wednesday night, following it up with the GQ Party on Thursday, Leather & Laces on Friday, Leigh Steinberg’s party Saturday afternoon, and Saturday Night Spectacular…you guessed it…Saturday night.  If you will be heading to any of those events, reach out to me beforehand.  Pete Parise is tearing up the Puerto Rico Baseball League playoffs.  The young man knows how to perform when it really matters.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week.

Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel.
