I am heading up to New York City later today and will be up north for the entire weekend.  It’s the most beautiful time to be in the City, so why not?  It is with great joy that I announce Mark Burns will be contributing much more frequently on this site.  Give him a follow; he’s quite the go-getter.  The site is still going through a migration to a new server, and everything should be set straight by Monday (thank G-d).  This past week on FORBES: (1) When Andrew Luck Is Not Quarterbacking The Indianapolis Colts He Is Designing Headphones; (2) Sports Law Practice Launched To Take Advantage Of 2022 FIFA World Cup And Other Middle Eastern Opportunities; (3) Five Former Kansas City Chiefs Players File Concussion Lawsuit Against Team; and (4) Sesame Street To Support Team USA In Partnership With US Olympic Committee.  And as always, the Friday wrap-up:

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