Yesterday was a long day, but for a very good reason. Our latest New York Sports Business Networking event was a big success. This was easily our biggest turnout, and we had a ton of great feedback (even saw a little buzz among friends in the Twitter world). Thank you to everyone who came out – we organize these events because we feel like there is a need to help others in the industry connect with one another, and as long as that need exists, we’re here to help!
Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of time to write today, but I want you to have your sports business fix, so here are some good articles I’ve seen over the past couple of days. Enjoy!
