Gilad Shalit Lands First Job

..as a sports commentator!

Former Hamas captive and recently discharged IDF soldier Gilad Shalit has just landed his first post-army job — and it’s a plum one.

A long-time sports fanatic (he’s especially fond of the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team), Shalit will be the new sports commentator for the leading Israeli newspaper, Yediot Ahronot. Israel’s Channel 2 News reported today that Shalit will write a regular column, and that his first one will be on the NBA championship.

The newly-minted journo is expected to fly to the U.S. very soon to cover the finals games between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat, which start today with Game 1 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

Shalit is also expected to write about the championship game of the Euro 2012 tournament. 

Meanwhile, I really wish his father would find another job  – one which doesn’t involve politics.
