After looking up various sources it appears the U.S.A. National Soccer team playing in the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brasil does indeed have a Jewish player on their team. Whether or not it is both parents, just his mother (which would satisfy all Jews requirements) or just his father (something that would not satisfy the most traditional within the religion’s ranks) I do not know. But I do know he is referred to as Jewish. Good enough for me.
For the record, even if we didn’t have one I’d still be cheering for them to beat Germany today. Just a little tidbit I know a bunch of you out there will appreciate. Maybe he makes it into Adam Sandler’s next Hanukkah song. That might depend on whether or not he helps us win. Go U.S.A! (unless you play The Netherlands).
