Kippot In Haiku: A-Rod’s Yarmulke?

I know it’s not the sort of thing about which I usually write, but I though the visitors to this blog might find this amusing. I certainly did  …

For some Yankees fans
A kippah signed by A-Rod
Could be appealing

But they might prefer
To bid on a yarmulke
Signed by Ibañez

Was A-Rod autographing Jewish ritual garb in the dugout as he watched Raul Ibañez win last Wednesday’s game for the Yankees?

Last week I received email notification that the company from which I purchased by Official MLB Licensed Chicago Cubs Kippah  is selling a Yankees “Pro-Kippah” signed by “super star 3rd baseman Alex Rodriquez”.

They’ve already sold at least one for $300. So if this is your sort of thing you may want to act fast.

No word on whether or not a Raul Ibañez kippah is in the works.

    It’s not my minhag to wear a kippah, but if there was a signed tallit…well, that’s another story. =)
    Go Yankees!

    My husband, biggest Yankees fan ever, is getting a little frustrated. Here’s his haiku:
    A-rod grips the bat
    Fastball slices night-time air
    Long walk to dugout
