No, I am not posting just to remind the world that I am here. I have risen from the dark depths of unemployment to point something out- something crucial, something at once life-altering and life-affirming, not to mention mind boggling. Alright, it might be none of those, but if NOFX can sing about jews, I can certainly post about them. Rex Grossman is not Jewish (rexgrossmanisnotjewish.com), but this man (look above) is: Michael Cammalleri. Shawn Green might be gone, but we have Camm, and he should be embraced and cherished every season he's playing for the Kings in LA (afterwards too, but not as much). The Kings' abysmal season has most people ignoring them- which is understandable- and even when attention is given to the team, most of the talk is centered around Anze Kopitar's outstanding rookie campaign with minimal leftover mentions of Frolov's breakout year. Cammalleri has 51 points in 55 games, including 20 points on the powerplay, and has a ridiculous plus-7 rating on the worst team in the conference. To put this in perspective, that's significantly better than Eric Staal is doing this season. So, the next time you're watching the Kings, check out the little man in between your grimacing and vomiting sessions. And the next time you're at shul--scratch that, there's no way he ever goes to shul.
