Alabama synagogue warns against sharing football scores during Yom Kippur
Jewish football fans in Alabama are going to have a serious conflict of interest next week. Two of the biggest college games of the calendar year, Auburn vs. Mississippi State and Alabama vs. Texas A&M, are taking place on Saturday. Those who are recognizing Yom Kippur will not be able to watch either game.
As a result, a Deadspin reader pointed out that Temple Emanu-El in Birmingham is trying to get the Jewish community to band together to prevent spoilers. In other words, people want to be able to DVR the games without finding out the results ahead of time.
That sounds reasonable, but you know there will be at least one or two people who play the role of Ari Gold and have to check the score of the game on their smartphone. Hopefully that guy keeps it to himself.
