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.
