Major League Dreidel

The names Spindiana Jones, Goy Wonder and Spinona Ryder may not be as universally known as Michael Jordon, but in the world of Major League Dreidel (MLD) they are stars. From the article: "Eric Pavony, 31, is MLD’s founder and 'knishioner.' 'I remember enjoying spinning the dreidel more than actually participating in the traditional rules of the game,' says Pavony, who has seen his league grow from 32 competitors to 120 since 2007. MLD events have since spread to San Francisco, Denver and Miami, while Pavony has refined and mass-produced the crude contraption the game was first played on and branded it the Spinagogue -- the official spinning surface of MLD."

TSN? (2)

When will TSN start televising this? If they can televise Poker, then can Major League Dreidel be far behind?

Perfect Idle Article (1)

This is the dorkiest thing I've read all year, and perfect Idle fodder. This is why Idle is a good idea; where else could you ever read about this stuff.
