Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/9/2017)

Good morning from Amenia, NY, where I will be spending the day playing a round of golf at Silo Ridge Field Club. I considered taking a trip from there to the Belmont Stakes, but decided to do Saturday in Manhattan instead. With my fiancee by my side (we are celebrating her birthday), it should hopefully be a very enjoyable weekend. A bit more enjoyable than the Cavaliers’ experience thus far through the NBA Finals. I can’t say that I’m upset. Game 3 was a thriller and my boy Draymond Green is a bit closer to a second championship. Let’s get it Money Green!
