    Today was a sad day in baseball. It is true that my favorite player of all-time is Frank Thomas. But if Big Frank wouldn’t have been on the White Sox I probably would have had Ken Griffey Jr. posters all over my room. Griffey was the greatest player of my generation. People can argue... read on

    Tekiyah. Tru-ah. Shevarim. Tekiyah Gedolah. We hear those sounds during the High Holidays when the shofar sounds. The kids stand on chairs to see an older man standing on the bimah blowing everything he has into a large ram’s horn.

    Before there was Omri Casspi there was a man by the name of Tal Brody. Brody was a sensational player for my Alma Mater, The University of Illinois.

  • Lebron James’ Jewish Dilemma

    By Jeremy Fine

    Unless you are a Celtic or Laker’s fan right now you couldn’t care less about the playoffs. I mean I guess there is a little bit of hope left in Phoenix, but really can anyone stop Kobe and Gasol. Seriously, the NBA should have vetoed the Gasol trade, arguably the most lopsided trade... read on

  • Wayne Odesnik Gets a 2 Year Ban

    The Great Rabbino doesn’t cover too much Tennis. We did post an interview with Paul Goldstein, but really we have not done too much.
