How about Mark Burns, Benjamin Haynes, Chris Lesley, Brandon Thorn and Sports Agent Blog’s newest contributor Josh Corriveau providing some quality articles to wrap up 2013?  Expect a lot more out of them as we get set to start 2014 off with a bang.  In a few days (December 31 to be exact), this site will be celebrating its 8th birthday.  Unbelievable.  Finishing up final edits to my forthcoming Sports Law book How to Play the Game to be published by the American Bar Association in March or April of 2014.  It’s a damn good feeling.  This week on FORBES: (1) J. J. Watt Surfaces As A Superhero While Houston Texans Continue To Suffer; and (2) Jay Z May Soon Compete With Drake, Lil Wayne And Birdman Over Blue-Chip Athletes.
