Yelling at Ryan Braun

The Brewers were in town last weekend. I was sitting in leftfield and wanted to yell something at Ryan Braun to let him know that as a fellow Jew, I root for him.

It occurred to me that there's pretty much nothing I could yell at him that wouldn't sound unbelievably anti-Semitic. "Hey Braun, how was your Passover?... As a fellow Jew, I'm genuinely interested!" I thought about screaming out the Hebrew alphabet. I could have sung Dayanu. It all seemed anti-Semitic.

I finally came up with "Hey Braun, how about you, me, and Marquis go out for a nosh after the game?" But you can't really yell that intelligibly.
