The Jewish Bracket Wins!!!!

Many of you laughed. Many of you tried to find problems with my logic. But look who is laughing now! The Jewish bracket which I had up about a few weeks ago now reigns supreme (if you don’t know what I am talking about check this out www.thegreatrabbino.com/2010/03/ncaa-bracket-with-jewish-twist.html).

Like I said, Jon Scheyer and the Dukies would win it all. I told you Tennessee was better than you all thought. I told you Syracuse wouldn’t be out in the second round. I told you that God was on the side of the Jewish bracket. And God was. Tomorrow in school when the shekels are transferred over I am thinking of giving a victory speech. I will show everyone how God is in sports. God defeated all of the CBSSportline “experts” and even Barack Obama. How could they not believe me?

But in reality it was all about Jon Scheyer. Critics said it was a mistake to go to the fast pace ACC and they said he was too skinny to play at the next level. But he proved us all wrong. I think Scheyer will be just fine as he now turns his attention to solidifying his status as a first round NBA draft pick.

At The Great Rabbino we will switch our attention to the drafting of Taylor Mays, the rise of the Mets’ Ike Davis, and of course baseball season. But I leave you with two videos (one funny/one unbelievable) of Jon Scheyer. Congrats man.



And Let Us Say…Amen.
