Each week I am planning to look at some of the stories and news that I found most interesting. This space will include some sports, but not all of the sports stories that I normally follow in the areas of sports philanthropy, sports law, sports business, Jewish sports, concussions and otherwise. If you want to see more of what I am following in those areas, let me know and I can point you to the best spots on my blog or various websites. You will see that I love to find some of life’s little absurdities and point those out as well as other interesting stories that I follow.
