Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (4/27/12)

If you are following the NFL Draft, you also want to follow this list of players selected (along with their agents), which will be updated as the Draft moves along.  I cannot complain with the Miami Dolphins’ pick of Ryan Tannehill.  His wife is thrilled as well.  Tough loss in 2OT for my hometown Florida Panthers last night, but I am really looking forward to the NBA Playoffs and hoping that the Miami Heat can make it through the tough Eastern Conference.  I will be speaking at the American Bar Association Forum On The Entertainment And Sports Industries next week.  If you are in South Florida, I would love to see you there.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week.
