Why are people wondering whether Jim Schwartz is Jewish?


It’s discomforting to discover that the most popular story on my blog right now is a two-year-old post about the Detroit Lions head coach, Jim Schwartz. That’s because I can imagine only one reason this post is drawing visitors from Google.

Schwartz was involved in quite the dust-up with Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, after the Niners beat the Lions yesterday. It’s been all the talk of ESPN and sports talk radio. And when I looked to see why folks were checking out this old Schwartz post, Statcounter told me that the Google searches were for phrases like “is the coach of the detroit lions jewish” and “Jim Schwartz Jewish?”

He’s not. But the bigger question is why would people wonder that after seeing Schwartz and Harbaugh go nose to nose?
