Are these the top Jewish athletes of all time?

InGameNow.com is a sports blog that tracks scores in real time -- games as they are played.

Today, in honor of Yom Kippur, they published their list of the top Jewish 37 athletes -- seven winners and 30 nominees, as well as this photo of Olympic medalist Dara Torres (photo, left). The photo sort of squicks me out, but that's for another blog post.

Here are the Top Seven:
o Dara Torres
o Corey Pavin
o Kevin Youkilis
o Larry Brown
o Kurt Angle
o Hank Greenberg
o Mark Spitz
My personal hero, Dodger Sandy Koufax, is #8. Ergo, this list is nuts.

First, I don't consider a coach an athlete, and I don't consider professional wrestling a sport.

With Larry Brown and Kurt Angle off the list it makes more sense.
