Ike Davis Hit Two Homers

            Near the Jewish New Year 
            Ike Davis of the New York Meetropolitans hit 2 home runs
           Near the Jewish New Year 
           Israel's baseball team beat South Africa
          My late father used to speak about Sid Luckman
          World Famous Football hero 
News flash 
          Sandy Koufax (the left arm of God) is 
           is still alive
         And took off on the Jewish New Year
        Samuel Reshevsky 
         was U.S. Chess Champion 
Ethnic pride is permissible
        And there are manyy good member of the tribe 
Despite having some very, very bad apples 
     like every other ethnic group

    hey, matt, so looks like I am first here. Just as you said. Sorry this is not getting more "hits" for you. I am not too familiar with all the references made to famous things here. But I love the way you inserted News Flash between these lines. Very nice.
