Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (5/28/2010)

I am ready for a new phone.  I don’t think I hate anything or anyone as much as I hate the hourglass on my Blackberry Curve.  The damn icon is the death of me.  I have to take out the battery at least five times per day.  But not for much longer.  Yesterday, I went to Radio Shack and pre-ordered Sprint’s new HTC Evo, which comes out next Friday.  I cannot wait.  I’ll have it configured in time for the following week’s MLB Draft.  Dynasty is advising some great players, some of whom will sign and others I am sure will end up going to college or staying in higher education.  Bar Exam studying has been a grind, but I knew it wouldn’t be easy going into it.  I am also starting to get serious about looking for possible tenure-track professor positions in higher education for post-completion of the Florida Bar.  I am thankful to all of my friends who are giving me guidance in that area.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

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