    Edgar Davids

    Jew Score:



    March 13, 1973 —

    For those who don't know, the European soccer championship is going on right now. It's like a mini World Cup. For three weeks, teams will battle out to figure out who is the best country on the continent: Sweden or Spain. Germany or Poland. Poor Poland.

    But it's not Poland we're interested in today, it's the Netherlands. And we cheat a bit here, since today's subject is not included in the current Dutch squad. Edgar Davids is currently at the tail end of his career that saw him spend a decade at some of Europe's most glamorous clubs. During that time, he was considered one of the best defensive midfielders in the world.

    And yes, the Suriname-born dark-skinned goggle-wearing dread-locked Dutchman has Jewish roots. According to Davids himself, one of his grandparents is Jewish.

    Which means a couple of things: Davids is probably the first person with Jewish blood to be nicknamed "The Bulldog", and...

    Excuse us, we need to wrap this up. France versus Romania is starting.

    Verdict: Barely a Jew.
