Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (6/3/2011)

Really tough loss for the Miami Heat last night.  Chris Bosh is not living up to his role as part of “The Big Three” thus far in the 2011 NBA Finals.  Let’s see if the Heat are able to take at least one away from the Mavericks in Dallas.  The 2011 MLB Draft starts in only three days and will go from June 6-8.  It is a long process, with a total of 50 rounds, not including early supplemental rounds.  The Pittsburgh Pirates have the #1 overall pick and the Diamondbacks have two of the first ten picks in the Draft (#3 and #7).  Oral arguments in Brady v. NFL begin today in St. Louis at the Eighth Circuit Court Of Appeals.  Hopefully NFL football returns soon.  Shout out to The Sports Rabbi for having me on his Israel Sports Radio show yesterday.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
