Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (11/18/2011)

It feels like every week the Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up is coming to you from a different town.  This Friday, I am at University of Pennsylvania for the Ivy Sports Symposium.  I am here to listen to the amazing panels, network with a lot of friends in the sports industry, and accept my 10 Next Award (I am extremely thankful for the recognition).  I have been battling a lingering cough for the past couple of weeks, but hopefully will put it fully behind me very soon.  There has been a lot of press about a Complaint that was filed by myself and Richard Wolfe on behalf of Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino against Abercrombie & Fitch.  If you have not heard about it, here is one of the many articles that have been written about the pending lawsuit.  NBA heavy wrap-up!  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
