No College Football Chatter

During Yom Kippur Services
(JTA) Saturday is Yom Kippur. It also
includes a rematch between the University
of Alabama and Texas A&M, the only
team to beat Coach Nick Saban's national
champion Crimson Tide last year.
But Bama fans at Reform Temple
Emanu-El in Birmingham, Ala., are under
strict orders — no football talk during
Yom Kippur services, or even during the
break-fast event.
According to AL.com , a message was
handed out at Rosh Hashanah services
banning scores and high fives at Yom Kippur.
"If even a peep gets out, our pages in the
Book of Life will be compromised and all
of us will suffer; it chided in part.
