This week’s Bagels and Jocks analyzes March Madness, and poses 12 burning Jewish baseball questions for 2012. As if that’s enough, we also take a quick look at Tebow and Tiger. So, let’s begin.
As the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow figure to dominate the headlines after bouncing the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime with a dramatic victory yesterday, this is a day to reflect on the convergence of religion and sports. Not really, but Bagels and Jocks does salute Mr. Tebow, while again looking at some prominent Jewish sports personalities in a variety of sports. Well, we do throw in a little Theology.
In today’s edition of Bagels and Jocks, we provide updates for Jewish players in the NHL and NFL, check in on Theo Epstein, question what NBA commissioner David Stern was thinking, and oh yeah, hope that there was a good reason that National League MVP Ryan Braun allegedly failed a drug test this past October.
