Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (6/17/2011)

I do not watch much hockey at all, but I did tune in to see Game 7 between the Boston Bruins and the Vancouver Canucks.  The aftermath viewed through multiple pictures and videos is disheartening.  But it goes to show you just how powerful and meaningful sports and individual franchises can be to the general public.  It was tough to watch the Miami Heat go down in 6 games, but I congratulate the Dallas Mavericks on playing at such a high level throughout the series; it is a championship well deserved.  The NBA Draft is right around the corner.  Make sure to stop by this site next week for some good posts, including a new Interview with the Agent piece, which will be released Monday morning.  Here are some stories I missed in the past week:

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