    Edouard de Rothschild

    Jew Score:



    February 24, 1868 – June 30, 1949

    The 2016 Olympics are promising to be special because two sports are making their long-awaited return. Golf and rugby, absent at the Summer Games for close to a century, are both on the schedule for Rio.

    One sport that is not coming back? Polo.

    That's right, polo (yes, POLO) was an Olympic sport five times. When it debuted at the 1900 Games, five teams took part. The one of interest to us is Bagatelle Polo Club de Paris, who finished joint third with Mexico (yes, in 1900, MEXICO had a NATIONAL POLO TEAM). Bagatelle featured two Brits and two Frenchmen, including one Edouard Alphonse James de Rothschild (yes, a member of the Rothschild dynasty), quite likely the only Jewish polo medalist in the history of the Olympics.

    Polo last appeared in the Summer Games in 1936, and has since been relegated to goyishe country clubs, Ralph Lauren shirts, and a somewhat memorable scene in "Pretty Woman". And no, it's not coming back to the Olympics.

    And neither is tug-of-war, absent since 1920.

    Now THAT one is a shame.

    Verdict: Jew.
