Ike Davis Hits Two Home Runs

     New the Jewish New Year
     Ike Davis hits 2 home runs
      Israel's Baseball tean beat 
South Africa near the Jewish New Year
            My late father used to speak about Sid Luckman,
world famous football player 
       Around the time of the Jewish New Year
Newsflash - Sandy Koufax(the left arm of G-d) is 
  still alive 
He took off on the Jewish New year
Newsflash - Samuel Reshevsky 
  was U.S. Chess Champion 
     and turned to Orthodoxy 
  ethnic pride is certainly permissible 
And we have some great members of the tribe!
(despite having a few bad apples - like every other ethnic group)

    i think that being in the minority causes people to look for members of their tribe to brag about (and yes, there are many!). people in the majority probably can't relate to the need to do this...
