Shabbat Shalom my friends. And a Merry Christmas to those celebrating the holiday next week. A lot of interesting occurrences this week, including a featured interview on Above the Law and some coverage of a trademark application I filed for Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (“Money Green”). As the year wraps up, I am looking back on my idea of starting HEITNER LEGAL back in June, and it tough to tell whether creating that law firm or this website was the smartest business move I have ever made. Thanks for the support, as always. This week on FORBES: (1) Will ESPN, Yahoo! Or CBS Buy This Fantasy Sports Startup?; (2) Sports Ugly Sweaters In High Demand This Holiday Season; (3) Joe Philbin May Be Done After Miami Dolphins Miss Playoffs Yet Again; (4) It Won’t Be Easy For Adrian Peterson To Set Aside Arbitration Award; (5) Who Will Earn A Hefty Commission On Russell Wilson’s Second Contract?; (6) Athlete Training Leader Adds Corporate Offerings Through MediFit Acquisition; and (7) Daily Fantasy Sports Makes Its Way To Facebook.
