Trestman Out

Reporting the unfortunate news about the only Jewish coach in the NFL. This week the Bears let go of Marc Trestman who failed to make the playoffs in both years with the Bears. Even worse his locker room was a mess all season long. Click HERE for more.

But on the bright side someone is coming to Trestman's aid. Guess who? Click HERE.

Baseball Updates

The Cubs have claimed former Red Sox, Ryan Lavarnway off waivers. Love Lavarnway, still hating the Cubs.


In better news Craig Breslow has resigned with the Red Sox where he has enjoyed so much success.


In other news, in the Justin Upton trade from Atlanta to San Diego, a key piece was Jewish prospect and phenom Max Fried. Good luck to Max on his journey to the Bigs.
