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

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.
