I don't know if the story is true, but it's a good one, nonetheless.
Uncle Harv forwarded this to me via email:
Red Sox Opener Postponed For Passover
Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein, announced that the Boston Red Sox home opener will be postponed to April 14, to avoid the eight days of Passover. He noted that because three of his starters were also Jewish, as were many of his box seat holders, he was forced to make this change in scheduling.
The non Jews in Boston are enraged at Epstein's decision. The protests are being tendered to the Commissioner of Baseball's office in protest; however, Bud Selig, Commissioner of Baseball, will not be able to address these protests, mainly due to a scheduling problem caused by the family Seders he and Mrs. Selig will be attending.
Also unable to attend the opener, were former Vice-President, and Mrs. Al Gore, who will be unavailable to be at the opener, as they will be attending the Seder at Al Gore's son-in-law's home.
Bill and Hillary Clinton, also at Seder at the home of their daughter's "steady."
Further, former Mayor of New York City. Rudy Guiliani, whose wife will be busy preparing their Seder will also not be in attendance at the "opener."
I'm so proud of my Jewish people!
