Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (3/5/2010)

It sure is nice to be back in South Florida for a semi-extended period of time.  I will be down here until March 14, when I start the last month of my life as a college student.  Law school is so close to being over, but even after I graduate, I will never stop learning.  I am so hungry to learn, not only in the area of sports, but in all facets of life.  In fact, I would love to not only learn, but also teach.  I have been speaking at my different institutions of higher education over the past few months, and it has left me a desire to teach along with continue to build my agency.  Know of any good openings for me?  Anyway, now that I have a short break, I will be able to travel the state and see a lot of my guys in Spring Training.  This will be a big year for a lot of the guys in Dynasty’s Baseball Division, and we cannot wait for their seasons to get started.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
