It was a busy day in the Big Apple yesterday. My day started with a meeting with Dave Barger of JetBlue, followed by a meeting with Don Blaustein, CEO of Heineken USA. I also had meetings with Commissioner Gary Bettman and John Browne of the NHL, as well as two other sponsor prospects. I ended the day having dinner with my twin brother Brett, who is the president of the New Jersey Nets.

In between my meetings with Dave and Don, I took a quick look at Citi Field, the new home of the New York Mets. What a beautiful place. They really did a great job. It’s amazing what you can do with close to a billion dollars!

I am now at the airport waiting for my flight back to Ft. Lauderdale. I always fly in and out of the Ft. Lauderdale airport. It’s so convenient. The parking is great and the staff is so friendly. I highly recommend it for business or leisure travel.

Today will be another very busy day. I have a staff meeting at 10 am followed by a few internal meetings. I am having lunch with Panthers head coach Pete DeBoer, which I'm really looking forward to. He did such a great job this season and I would like to get him more involved in our business initiatives this summer.

After lunch, I have a few sponsor meetings as well as a meeting with our finance department followed by dinner with ADT. They are one of our very special partners and I always enjoy spending time with them. They have done a wonderful job making sure our facility is safe for all of our guests and needless to say, that's a huge priority for us. Without a doubt, ADT is the undisputed leader in security services.

Well, my JetBlue flight is about to take off. Can't wait to watch ESPN. You can only do that on JetBlue.
