Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (4/7/2017)

Hello my friends, and welcome to another edition of the weekly wrap-up. This week’s version comes to you from Philadelphia, where I will be speaking on a panel concerning esports at an amazing event put on by Andrew Brandt and Villanova Law: 2017 Jeffrey S. Moorad Sports Law Journal Symposium. It is also Masters week, which is something we look forward to every year. Hopefully the bad weather in the surrounding region will stay away for the weekend and give everyone enjoyable views in person and at home. It is the end of the NBA season and my Miami Heat need to finish strong. Never know what surprises they can/will bring once the playoffs begin. Big thanks to LatestBettingSites for keeping the lights on over here this week.
