I stumbled across a book awhile ago called The Baseball Talmud. So I reached out to the author Howard Megdal. He is a very funny guy as you will see from his interview. There is a link to the book’s Amazon page below, as well as on the side of the blog. Enjoy.
The Great Rabbino: Howard Megdal, let me welcome you to The Great Rabbino. We are excited to have you on the blog.
Howard Megdal: It is an honor to speak to royalty, and I humble myself before The Great Rabbino.
Megdal: I’m a 6’3″ Caucasian male. I write for SNY.tv, MLBTradeRumors.com, NYBaseballDigest.com and a haiku recapping every Mets game at AmazinAvenue.com. I love corn muffins.
Megdal: Well, I’ve always been intensely interested in Jewish baseball players- the chance to reflect upon all of them, both anecdotally and statistically, was a siren song of a project.
Megdal: To learn, to laugh, to be entertained. You may even learn to love again- I wouldn’t be a bit surprised.
Megdal: I am Reform Jew, Orthodox New York Mets.
Megdal: Indeed- cooking up varying schemes with my agent. Probably, it will be baseball-related.
Megdal: Yes- I am currently booking Men’s Clubs for the fall and spring- happy to provide references upon request. For a reasonable honorarium, I will make your Sunday morning lox taste even better- and it’s hard to improve lox. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
