Comment of the Week

(Ravi Joshi/Tablet Magazine)

Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at 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.
