The New York Jets home season will start off poorly this year for some Jewish fans. And at least one of them insists that the Jets knew about a scheduling conflict with the Jewish calendar and did not take action until now.
Just what Wall Street trader Jonathan Katz always wanted: a slice of the action.
Katz, who deals with hedge funds on weekdays, will handle pastrami and turkey on weekends this NFL season as a partner in Kosher Sports Inc., which will operate a pair of kosher food carts in Giants Stadium, in East Rutherford, N.J., during Giants and Jets game. The teams' home season starts Sunday, Sept. 7, with the Giants hosting the St. Louis Rams.
The Super Bowl, this Sunday’s National Football League championship game, isn’t the only notable sports event to take place on a Feb. 3 — there was also the 26 points scored by Phil Rabin of the Kingston Colonials against the Brooklyn Jewels in a 1937 American Basketball League game, and the Buffalo Bisons’ Max Kaminsky’s 1943 appearance in the first American Hockey League All-Star Game.
The social hall of the Queens Jewish Center, an Orthodox congregation in Forest Hills, will be filled with football fans watching the Super Bowl Sunday evening. But only one will be wearing a Super Bowl ring — Alan Veingrad earned it as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, who won the 1993 National Football League championship.
