Every two years, it happens like clockwork.
Someone the general public has never heard of makes a name for themselves at the Olympics. And that someone has a possibly Jewish name.
And we, Jews, get excited. Could it be? Is it possible? Is there a hidden Jewish gem that we weren't aware of?
More often than not, our enthusiasm has to be curbed. Oh, there are Olympic Jews, but, with rare exceptions, most are known before the Games begin.
So, no, American snowboarding gold medalist, lover of bacon Sage Kotsenburg is not Jewish.
Maybe if he was a Katzenberg...
