Happy Hanukkah to my fellow Heebs! As sundown approaches this evening, I’m happy to continue the Ladies… tradition of recognizing excellence in the world of Jewish athleticism and kick it off right with one of our old favorites – I’m sure the masses will approve…
Happy first night of Hanukkah, everyone! Following our now annual tradition of recognizing some of our favorite hunks in the sports world that will be lighting the first candle along with me tonight, I can personally promise that this year will be quite exceptional. Night 1’s hottie after the jump!
Okay, so I cheated a little. Let’s just say that Buffalita was partying a little too hard on the last night of Hanukkah and didn’t get the post up in time. But I promise you this – I made it WELL worth your wait. Big finale – I give you the amazingly gorgeous Benny Feilhaber – center/midfielder for Aarhus Gymnastikforening (AGF).
As we come closer to the end of the Festival of Lights, I realized that I had gone an entire six nights without any adorable Jewish hockey players! To make up for that oversight, I give you Trevor Smith.
After checking, double checking, and even just now triple checking, I find myself in a bit of disbelief that we didn’t include the Night 6 Heeb hottie in last year’s group. Regardless, I give you the Texas Rangers’ second baseman: Ian Kinsler. Drool over him and a doughnut some more after the jump.
Surprise, surprise. On the heels of the big 116-99 win against the Toronto Raptors tonight after the fifth of the candles on the menorah burned out, we bring you my newest favorite Jewish player in the NBA – NY Knicks’ star forward Amar’e Stoudemire.
Throwing everyone a curve ball for night 4…remember Ben Wildman-Tobriner? You will after this…
