Doing the Maccabiah Games justice

The Canadian Jewish News is running a cute story about Justice Minister Irwin Cotler, who will be taking some time off his parliamentary duties next month to compete in the upcoming Maccabiah Games. His field: table tennis.
“I’ve been playing ever since I was a kid, but I haven’t played for a long time. I may end up being an embarrassment to the game, but my enthusiasm will be there,” Cotler told The CJN...
Cotler did not have to qualify because he was the only Canadian entrant for the event, said Maccabi Canada national athletic committee chair Allen Gerskup.
Oh well. That's a gold medal for spirit!
