World's only New York sports recap show with its roots in Talmud-Torah

NEW YORK CITY, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sportz Schmooze, the world's only "sports show with kishkes," has launched on YouTube as an ongoing sports highlight and review program covering teams and players from the greater New York area. And you don't have to be Jewish to enjoy the show's chutzpah-laden Yiddishe take on the New York sports scene. 

Sportz Schmooze Hosts; Moshe, Yossi and Walter

Daily, Orthodox hosts Yossi, Walter and Moshe offer their unique perspectives on the Giants, Jets, Knicks, Nets, Rangers, Islanders, Yankees and Mets. Bottom line: These guys really know their stuff! All those years of learning Torah and Talmud equip the threesome with the super-human acuity of sports computers! Aside from delivering an endless stream of sports trivia, the zesty repartee alone is worth regular visits to their YouTube channel.

Moshe Kravitsky, who specializes in solo stream-of-consciousness commentary and man-on-the-street interviews, brings an irresistible zaniness to the program. Think Woody Allen meets Robin Williams…both wearing black hats, beards and tzitzis (trust me, you don't even need to know what that means to dig this show!)

Sportz Schmooze is the brainchild of Jerusalem-based media company O2T (On Second Thought), founded by Gedaliah Gurfein and Cathy Lawrence, two seasoned veterans in the entertainment industry. Gurfein is former Director of Creative Development at IDT Entertainment; Lawrence was at Walt Disney Company, 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros.

"You know the joke: If they were going to have a Hall of Fame for Jewish sports stars, it would be as crowded as the North Pole," says Gurfein. "However, Jewish sports fans? None can compare in terms of knowledge, dedication, and passion! There's nothing on the air like Sportz Schmooze and that's why we anticipate a huge following in the Jewish community and far beyond."

For a taste, check out the Sportz Schmooze sizzle reel-at the top of their YouTube page-featuring New York Giants' great Leonard Marshall, who schmoozes football sports with the guys over kosher deli and his first bialy. Also, see Moshe's roving riffs and L'Chaims at the 3rd Annual Whisky Jewbilee charity event at Studio 450.
