Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (11/3/2017)

Shabbat Shalom from Antalya, Turkey, a place that I am visiting for the third time in my life and despite the current ban on Visas provided between Turkey and the U.S. I am here as a guest of Turkish Airlines, which is hosting its annual Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour. It’s an amazing time to be out here — zero chance of rain, temperatures between 55-75F and some good relaxation for my ankle that is still rehabilitating from a nasty high sprain. Early next week I am back to the U.S. and then I venture off to Costa Rica on Thursday for my bachelor party. November is certainly a very busy month between work and play!

Sports Law

By Darren Heitner

Darren Heitner created Sports Agent Blog as a New Year's Resolution on December 31, 2005. Originally titled, "I Want To Be A Sports Agent," the website was founded with the intention of causing Heitner to learn more about the profession that he wanted to join, meet reputable individuals in the space and force himself to stay on top of the latest news and trends.

Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel.
