Hebrew Nationals ... and Angelos

"Peter Angelos" and "American Friends of Lubavitch" have now been mentioned in the same sentence—with "Nationals Park" appearing in between. According to an item near the end of yesterday's "Reliable Source" column in the Post,

"Peter Angelos [was spotted] at Nationals Park, of all places, for the annual American Friends of Lubavitch benefit dinner on Monday. The Orioles owner joined Nationals owners Ted and Mark Lerner to honor team President Stan Kasten; Rabbi Levi Shemtov gave a shout-out for two kosher hot dog stands at the new ballpark."

I heard the Pope gave a shout-out for the kosher hot dogs when he visited Nationals Park, too. But my sources aren't reliable.

I would like to move that this year's PH4H football league be named after Florida State alum and recent mugging victim Javon Walker.

Even though he's only been a fair-to-middling PH4H-league player, being found unconscious on a Las Vegas Street after a night of partying is just about as PH4H-worthy as you can get -- without getting arrested.
