For those who can't get enough hockey and particularly those who might consider it a future career, the upcoming Hockey Business Career Conference on June 29-30 at the Marriot Marquis hotel in Times Square is worth a visit.
It is evident to anyone who kept up with this past NFL season that the Jets just never seemed to be ready for a successful season. Even before the season, the media seemed more fascinated by the backup quarterback than the actual play of the starter. Day in and day out, the media poured in Jets Training Camp to find out whatever they could about Tim Tebow.

As I had started this series back when the Nets were still based in New Jersey, that's why we're featuring the now-Brooklyn Nets next in this series. As one of the four ABA teams to join the NBA after the 1976 merger between both leagues, the Nets haven't had the same amount of success relative to their 37 NBA seasons as they had in their nine-year ABA run. But they're a team on the way back up, thanks to recent acquisitions like Joe Johnson, the brilliant trade that sent Deron Williams to the team in exchange for Devin Harris, and Brook Lopez finally enjoying a healthy, productive season as starting center.
The amount of money bet by NY sports fans on professional games from the NFL to the NBA, and MLB total billions of dollars annually. While bookmaking is still illegal in all US states except Nevada, NY bettors may have an option that’s closer to home if some Canadian lawmakers get their way.
The season is over half over and Tim Tebow is still the talk of the media. The Jets are 3-6 and Tebow hasn’t made a start.

Years ago, who would have predicted that three of the four major American sports leagues, NFL football, NBA basketball, and NHL hockey, would go through a players lockout? Yet, that is precisely what happened in 2011-2012, as each league struggled to restructure its costs and allocate fairly between players and owners. One lockout, the NHL Lockout, is still going on, despite repeated cries of dismay from fans.
“Getting Paul and Howard together.” No, this is not a headline from last February; it is the ESPN NBA insider story that greeted me on October 15th, 2012. Last I checked, Howard was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, Chris Paul was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers last November, and both are ensconced as the leaders of the cross-town rivals.
