I survived Costa Rica, which I count as a major win.  It was an absolute blast, but it is always nice to come home to a city that you love (Miami).  Tough first loss for the Miami Dolphins this past Monday, and it will be interesting to see how they rebound against the Ravens.  Basketball season is near; the Miami Heat host their first scrimmage open to the public this Sunday.  You have to love this time of the year.  This week on FORBES: (1) Is Alabama Vs. LSU Now A Bigger Rivalry Than Michigan Vs. Ohio State?; (2) Former NFL Kicker Matt Stover Finds Business Opportunity With Motion Analysis App; (3) The Presidents Cup’s Most Appealing Golfer Is Phil Mickelson; (4) Jay Z Credits Drug Dealer Past For Preparing Him As A Sports Agent; (5) Exclusive Licensee Of LeBron James And Kobe Bryant Tattoo Artwork Preps To Profit Off Of Images; and (6) 2014 Super Bowl In New York / New Jersey Shouldn’t Give Brands Cold Feet.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
