Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom/Merry Christmas Friday Wrap-Up (12/24/2010)

I made my 4th appearance as a Panelist on Rick Horrow’s Beyond the Game this past Saturday, which airs on CBS 12 in Palm Beach, Florida (video is embedded at the bottom of this post).  So who wants to represent me in my broadcast journalism career?  I’m heading into the Championship Game of Fantasy Football; I hope to bring home the championship for the 2nd year in a row…and I refuse to play in more than 1 league per year.  Anyone have fun plans for between now and New Years Eve?  No days off here at Sports Agent Blog!  Buy this book. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:




What makes the NFL championship game more fun than anything else is the huge range of Super Bowl prop bets we salivate upon each and every year. You can bet on anything from the national anthem to the commercials, but perhaps no Super Bowl prop provided by BetUS bet enjoys more love than who wins the MVP. Only eight defensive players have won the award, while receivers and tailbacks combine for just 13 MVP trophies. Yet if you’re going to play this Super Bowl prop bet, the first choice should always the quarterback position, which has won it 52-percent of the time.
