Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (11/25/2016)

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. Earlier this week, I made my first trip to Mexico City and watched the Oakland Raiders beat the Houston Texans. Overall, it was enjoyable. However, the traffic and parking was a pain, and the paper airplanes as well as green lasers hitting the field made for a bit of a distraction. Nothing like a cup of soup as the most enticing food item. Need a win from the Gators this weekend and then it’s on to Atlanta to face Alabama for the SEC Championship! Thankful to Borgata bonus code for the love this week.
