People say stupid things all the time. Here’s one for you: a San Francisco Chronicle writer believes that because NBA Commissioner David Stern Hanukkah, has no real feel for Christmas in the first place. This is a good digital holiday card from the Arizona Diamondbacks. I especially like the part where an employee guesses that dreidels are made out of cornbread. On Forbes this week: (1) Former Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn Will Send Two Fans To The BCS Championship Game; (2) Why Louisville Should Top The List For An NBA Franchise; and (3) Nike’s Second Quarter Earnings May Reconcile North American Surge With Europe Stagnation. That Louisville article generated quite a bit of buzz. And here are some stories I failed to cover this past week:
- Probably the best article I have read regarding the pending legal fight between the NHL and NHLPA [NHL lawsuit claims dissolving union would be a ploy].
- For the Sports Law junkies [Weil Set to Face Off Against Skadden, Proskauer in NHL Labor War].
- I love the picture in this article [Agent: Anibal Sanchez left money on the table].
- Short Q&A with the 43-year-old baseball agent [Sports Agent Darek Braunecker On What He Looks for Athletes, Changes in the Business].
- New agent Rich Paul under the microscope [Sources: NCAA to suspend Texas guard Myck Kabongo for season].
- Randy Livingston says he is owed money for helping with Tyrus Thomas and other clients [Former NBA player suing sports management agency over contract linked to NBA and former LSU basketball player Tyrus Thomas].
- Twitter is hiring; need 12+ years work experience (or equivalent), primarily in the sports world [Media – Manager, Sports Creative Relationships].
