Yossef Stauber’s job is to guard the lions’ section at the Ramat Gan Safari Park just outside Tel Aviv. He stays in his observation tower all day, opening and closing the gates for visitors in their cars. The rest of the time, between cars, he sits and learns.

This is Oakland’s Josh Donaldson, scoring on a wild pitch by Yankee CC Sabathia Tuesday night, on the West Coast. Sabathia went 6 really bad innings and was ejected. Say it ain’t so, CC.

This is a Chinese tiger from the Ramat Gan Safari. I can just picture him prowling restlessly in our living room in Netanya, waiting for his lunch. How beautiful he would look on our big couch.
