In honor of Purim, I thought we would decide the best costumes for some of our Jewish sports heroes. Here is the list below:

Omri Casspi as an Israeli Solider - Who else would I want “defending” our country.

Jordan Farmar as the number 64 - The combined number of points he and Deron Williams scored Sunday night.

Lawrence Frank as Larry Brown - Maybe that would get the Pistons to win.

Jake Cohen as Stephen Curry - Hopefully leading Davidson to an Sweet Elite Eight.

Sam Fuld as Super Sam Fuld - He wears the cape the Rays gave out last year.

Theo Epstein as a Goat or Steve Bartman - Hopefully, the tradition continues.

Ryan Braun as a Syringe - Laughing at all his haters.

Igor Olshansky as Dennis Rodman - He already has the tattoos.

Julian Edelman as Wes Welker - Come on when Brady throw Welker the ball sometimes you think is Edelman.

Taylor Mays as Mr. Universe - He is just that strong.

Gabe Carimi as a Teddy Bear - After his injury he will need a lot of hugs.

Colt Cabana as Scotty Goldman - That would just be hysterical.

Let me know if you have any others. Chag Sameach! Happy Purim.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
