Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (9/14/2018)

Greetings from Chicago, where I’ll be for the weekend for a wedding. Part of the trip is taking in my first-ever Chicago Cubs game tomorrow. My Dolphins are off to a surprising 1-0 start after breaking a record for the longest game ever. I stayed through the first delay and half way through the second delay before I had to leave to ensure I made it to my parents’ house for Rosh Hashanah. As for my Gators, it was not such a great weekend. So many frustrations. But hopefully they will get things sorted and come back strong against some tougher SEC opponents the rest of this season.

Here are just some of the articles posted this past week on The Sports Biz:
