Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (7/22/2016)

Not much going on in sports this past week, unless you consider the Republican National Convention a sporting event, which wouldn’t be entirely inaccurate. It’s the dead of Summer, with baseball and not much else until the Olympics roll around. Thankfully, there is some great TV to watch, including Suits, Mr. Robot and The Night Of. Well, let’s get to the wrap-up.
