    Jew Score:



    March 14, 1991 —

    Since this profile is first going to run during Super Bowl LII, you might have come to our website for the first time to find out if Julian Edelman is Jewish. For returning visitors, that's old news! Instead we're going to profile another, Jewier athlete Edelman.

    Adam (AJ) Edelman is all set to compete in the Winter Olympics, where he will become the first (on record) Orthodox Jew to participate. AJ races skeleton, the sport where you lie down head first on a sled and zip down ice. It was banned from the Olympics for half a century because it was deemed too dangerous. Jewish mothers certainly don't approve.

    Edelman, who is an MIT graduate (Jewish mothers approve!) is not exactly a skeleton superstar. He only qualified because the Swiss gave up its Olympic slot. Thanks, Switzerland! AJ is obviously not supposed to medal, but that won't stop us from rooting for the "Hebrew Hammer"...

    Yes, AJ is yet another Jewish athlete to be nicknamed the "Hebrew Hammer". But, for returning visitors, that's old news...

    Verdict: Jew.
