It's time for another installment of our "Ask Jew or Not Jew" feature, where young readers write in for advice. Here's a letter we recently received.
Dear Jew or Not Jew, I just read your Daniel Snyder profile (you need to update it!), where you suggest that Jews who want to get into the NFL become franchise owners. Is there another way? — Ben Tuchman, 15, Las Vegas, Nevada
Dear Ben, have you considered sports journalism? There is a large tradition of Jews covering the NFL through the years: from Howard Cosell to Chris Berman to Rich Eisen to Jay Glazer. And that's just on TV; we're not even talking about print media. (Of course, by the time you enter the job force, there won't be any print media...)
Yes, before you ask, Jay Glazer is Jewish! Doesn't exactly come off as one, but he definitely he is. Somewhat of a blowhard, too. Where were we?...
Oh, yes, sports journalism! Just don't expect it to pay well. If that's what you're into, better hold out for franchise owner.
Yours in disappointing career choices,
Jew or Not Jew.
