Goldberg – Jewish Warrior

An interesting feature article about Bill Goldberg in American Jewish Life magazine.  For those of you not familiar with Goldberg, he made his fame playing the role of a wrestler in the WCW bouts.  Some interesting excerpts from the interview:

After leaving his football career behind him, Bill Goldberg went on to become the world’s most famous wrestler — making millions by prancing around in nothing but boots and underwear. Now the 40 year old is reinventing himself again, this time as a reality television host, a family man, and a proud Jew…

Goldberg has fond memories of growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma with his accomplished parents (his mother, now retired in Miami, was a concert violinist) and siblings. “It was a great place to grow up — no crime, terrific Midwest values. It made me the nice Jewish boy that I am,” he chuckles. “Passover was always fun for me,” he remembers, calling his bar mitzvah a highlight. “From what I remember it was the biggest party on the planet, but I’ve been hit in the head way too many times and I can’t remember everything.”
