Dodgers were the chosen team today



I just got home from Dodger Stadium after catching Clayton Kershaw second consecutive home start. Today’s turned out much better than the managerial and bullpen meltdown Tuesday.

Coincidentally, today was Jewish community day. For the second straight year, Brad Ausmus, the Dodger’s back up who is may be the greatest Jewish catcher to ever play, didn’t get into the game (after a crucial RBI yesterday).

Nothing special happens on Jewish community day. No longer is the occasion used to bring in kosher hot dogs, and the Dodgers don’t parade the great Jewish ballplayers to ever put on Dodger Blue.

They did at least have some “Jeopardy!” Jewish-themed trivia, which should have been pretty easy for most Dodger fans, Jews and gentiles alike.

1. This former Dodger and Met slugger ranks second all-time among Jewish home run hitters.

2. Mets owner Fred Wilpon attended high school with this former Dodger Jewish legend.

Answer in the comments. Don’t forget to use proper “Jeopardy!” form.
