Ki Yachol Nuchal!

New olah; mom and wife. In small ways, every day, trying to rectify the error in judgement of my zaydies, the meraglim. "See these big grapes? We can make really big wine!"

The B-More Backers Bring the Four-One-Oh* to Israel!

Posted by rutimizrachi on 11/11/2008

Yom revi’i, 14 Cheshvan 5769.

Back in Elul, we former Baltimoreans shared a sad memorial service for a very sweet kid named Chananya Backer, a”h. The boys wanted to do something to remember Chananya in a positive way.

So when it came time to come up with a name for their American Football team, they decided to honor their friend, and their old home town. Thus, the “B-More Backers” were born.


Tonight, I can happily report that the Sports Guy and the Bookworm, two of our favorite 14-year-olds, received their team shirts. After the game, the good news was cell-phoned home: The B-More Backers are now two and oh! “Pizzeria Efrat” and “Your Moms Mistakes,” notice is served: watch out. The field belongs to the Four-One-Oh!*

Chananya, your homies are doing okay. I think you’d be proud of the way they are becoming Israelis, with a Baltimore “ta’am.”

#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%#%
*410 was the area code of Baltimore for some time, only recently joined by 443. “Bringing the four-one-oh” is some of the only teenager slang I have mastered, much to my sons’ embarrassment.
