Super Mishmar Takes on the Super Bowl
Cold vs. warm, indoor vs. outdoor, bowl vs. mishmar, wings vs. wings
It was the first time the Super Bowl was played in NY/NJ, in a cold weather outdoor stadium, but Super Mishmar was a return in Queens, in the warm beis medrash at LCM. While some watched the disappointing game, many headed to the beis medrash. Mimon Mamane says the turnout was awesome, and the room was packed. Rabbi Meir Shalem’s shiur on “Halachos of Gambling” was a great success and especially apt with active fantasy football betting pools nationwide. Rabbi Moshe Crystal gave his navi shiur on Sefer Shmuel Alef about Eli who would travel to the mishkan for the regel.
And of course, like most parties that day, there’s the menu. “I saw some Super Bowl party menus and they didn’t come close,” Mimon said. Hamburgers, poppers, wings, cornflakes chicken and burritos were only the start of an all-star Super Mishmar menu. Super Mishmar might just have won out against the Super Bowl.
