Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (10/28/2016)

Off to Las Vegas this evening for a real quick getaway before another busy week at Heitner Legal, which includes even more travel. Skipping the sportsbooks on Sunday to partake in some golf, which I hear is superb in and around Vegas. But on Saturday, it’s a big rivalry game between my Gators and the Georgia Bulldogs! The Miami Heat looked pretty good against a weak Orlando Magic team, which has South Florida excited . . . until the first loss comes around.
