By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
People have written about the Israeli national baseball team and how the team made it to the world baseball championships beating Cuba, Netherlands South Korea and Taiwan.
In the end they lost to Japan. But their performance was inspirational and certainly impressive.
Commentators around the world wrote about how the well the team did, only Israel seemed not to be paying attention. Israel just wasn't paying attention.
Israelis themselves were blase. That's because Israelis don't understand baseball.
They don't understand yo-yo either. Tal Mordoch, a 16 year old 10th grade high schooler from Ramat Hasharon, won second place in the European Yo Yo Championships which took place in Krakow, Poland.
He is now training for the international championships taking place in August in Tokyo. At last year's competition in Prague, Mordoch placed 30th.
Congratulations. Sports is big news.
