Last night I had the privilege to sit in a room with over 150 other Jewish sports fans and hear the legendary Mad Dog Russo. Mad Dog talked sports and give us insight in some pivotal moments in NFL history. The night didn’t end there. Silent and live auctions featuring everything from a Yankees dream outing to a Justin Tuck signed helmet. After dinner everyone gathered for dessert, pool, pop-a-shot, and an amazing poker tournament.

Yasher Koach to Dan Burton (one of the hosts) and the entire UJA group who organized it. The group has brought in the likes of Stephan Marbury and Bob Costas in the past. And every year the group grows.

A tremendous night of sports talk and enthusiastic Jewish people helping the UJA raised money.

Well done everyone.

And Let Us Say…Amern.
