Mark Lazarus is a rights’ man on the move. The NBC Sports Group Chairman is in England this week for meetings with the Premier League, the U.K.’s top soccer circuit. He'll spend two days in Paris for the French Open tennis championships and then attend a Stanley Cup Final game or two. Then he’s off to Daytona for the start of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series coverage with the Coke Zero 400 on July 2. Later next month, Lazarus will land in Scotland for Open Championship at Royal Troon, before decamping in Rio de Janeiro from July 25 to Aug. 22 for the 2016 Summer Olympics.
