Recently I tweeted an article by Dave Feldman about MLB Jam (Click HERE to read), a spinoff from NBA Jam the popular ‘90s video game. The article is awesome besides the fact that there is no mention of Mark Buehrle. Anyway, TGR decided to tackle the subject and show everyone some recent Jewish combos that would make our Jewish Sports Jam (All sports included).

2010/11 Montreal Canadiens -

Mike Cammalleri is coming off a dominating 2010 playoffs and currenly has 13 goals and 18 assists. While Jeff Halpern has 7 goals and 12 assists.

2010 Dallas Cowboys

- Kyle Kosier started on the Cowboys O-Line and Igor Olshanky on the D-Line.

2009 Texas Ranger

- Ian Kinsler joined the 30/30 club and batted .327 while Scott Feldman went 17-8 with a 4.08 Era.

2008 ATP Doubles

- Andy Ram and Jonathon Erlich won the Australian Open.

2007 San Diego Chargers

- David Binn was a NFL Pro Bowl Long snapper and Olshanky had 35 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and 1 Int.

2004 Boston Red Sox

- Kevin Youkilis and Gabe Kapler were World Series Champs.

* 1976 New York Yankees

- While this is not too recent I thought it was cool to mention Ken Holtzman and Ron Blomber played for one season together on the Yankees. While Steve Stone and Holtzman missed each other by a year (for the “other” Chicago baseball team).

Feel free to comment with more tandems.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
