Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (7/20/2018)

My two-week cruise and Santorini vacation was a blast, but it is good to be back. The vacation took me from Venice to Dubrovnik to Olympia to Athens to Split and then finally five nights in Santorini. If you want to see some pics, you can follow me on Instagram. It was definitely a needed break from the action and now I’m refreshed to grind out the rest of the year. How about that Kawhi Leonard trade to the Toronto Raptors? Before I left on vacation, no one was even speaking about Kawhi potentially moving across the border. I bet he didn’t even envision that Toronto was a real possibility when he began to play hardball. Meanwhile, my Miami Heat have done little-to-nothing this offseason and I’m quietly preparing for the worst.
