    Art Shamsky

    Jew Score:



    October 14, 1941 —

    To a certain constituency of people, former New York Mets outfielder Art Shamsky is a hero.

    Here's how it works. If you were

  • living in the New York area in the late 1960s
  • rooting for the Mets
  • young enough to base your life around the team
  • Jewish

    Then chances are, you love Art Shamsky.

    Sure, we're talking about a really small group in the end. But it's still not bad for a guy who had basically one good season in a career that lasted less than a decade.

    Of course, now that his divorce has turned ugly and all sorts of sex scandal slime is being thrown his way (true or not), it looks like poor Art Shamsky is going to lose whatever tiny fan base he has left.

    Oh well, maybe Marv Throneberry will turn out to be Jewish...

  • Verdict: Sadly, a Jew.
