Happy Chanukah!

I grew up in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood on the far north side of Chicago and though I'm not at all religious I do call myself culturally Jewish.  Having moved to another state a few years ago, I now live in a small town that as far as I can tell is exclusively Christian.  As a way of staying connected to my roots I've started collecting cards featuring Jewish athletes.  Here's one of my favorites, a vintage Sid Gordon from the 1948 Bowman set.  Happy Chanukah!
This as Adam Sandler's most recent version:


  1. Happy Chanukah! I don't care for Adam Sandler, so I'll mentally play a Tom Lehrer video instead ("I'm spending Chanukah in Santa Monica... wearing sandals, lighting candles by the sea...")

  2. Thanks guys. You're a couple of mensches.
