Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (7/14/2017)

I attended my first Home Run Derby and boy, was that a blast! Aaron Judge is surely a strong new face for baseball and Miami did a wonderful job hosting the event. It was shocking to see the stadium filled to the brim, as usually it’s just you and your best friends in attendance. Still non-stop news reporting rumors concerning who will win the bidding war for the Marlins. My prediction remains that it will be Jorge Mas along with whomever he brings into the investment team. Peyton Manning put on a good show at the ESPYs, which I thought was produced quite well. And not much else going on in sports other than fantasy football drafts coming up!
