Brilliant Game Plans
Comment of the Week
Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at email@example.com with his or her mailing address).
This week’s winner is Eli Spielman, who added the following insight to Matthew Hiltzik’s (Alec Baldwin-approved!) comparison of Jewishness to New York Jets fandom the following insight: “Being a Jets fan is like a microcosm of Jewish history: Decade upon decade of martyrdom punctuated only by a brilliantly game-planned upset in the late 1960s.”
Come to think of it, an eyepatch would have totally worked on Joe Namath.
Spielman gets a copy of Shimon Peres’ biography of David Ben-Gurion, the Weeb Ewbank (or perhaps Sonny Werblin) of the Six Day War.
