Geoff Schwartz is one of only nine Jewish players in the NFL, and he combines with his brother, Mitchell, to comprise 22 percent of the Jewish NFL population. In honor of Passover Tuesday, Schwartz, an offensive lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs, wrote a list of 10 random facts about being a Jewish athlete for Sports Illustrated’s Hot Clicks. We’ll share two of our favorite items from the list: 5. I carry my personal Menorah and have lit Chanukah candles in the hotel rooms the night before games. Last season when in St. Louis my Jewish coach joined me for the lighting. 7. There is a lack of Jewish groupies. Where are all the tall Jewish blonde women? Schwartz was with the Minnesota Vikings last season, so I’m guessing the coach with whom he celebrated is offensive line coach Jeff Davidson. Which one of them do you think held the chamash candle? As for his question about the Jewish groupies, well, … keep dreaming, buddy. Head over to Hot Clicks to read Schwartz’s full list. Relate...

Joique Bell To Remain Involved in Lions' Offense

Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz says running backs Joique Bell and Mikel Leshoure will still be part of the Lions offense, according to a report from detroitlions.com, but we don't see how.Fantasy Spin:Bush figures to be the starter and the pass receiver and Leshoure should get the short yardage and goal line work.

Oh hey, it’s an uneventful Wednesday in late March, so here’s an incredible video of a lamppost smashing through a bus windshield in China. Pretty remarkable that the driver survived.
