Good piece but ironic given the prominent headline Haaretz features - not just in the paper but in the Maccabi section - Jews second in brawn but first in brains. It's not just Hollywood Jews who love to indulge the stereotypes, it's lots of writers, perhaps because they were wanna-be-athletes or, worse, sucked at sport and trying to drag the rest of the tribe into their personal dilemma. Too bad cause it discourages young Jewish kids from trying and that attempt on the writer's part - as my high school gym coach (Jewish) is not just lazy but bigoted stupidity.
