If you are looking for factual information and you don't want it tainted by any homerism, it's best to do it here. For example, I made a fact-finding thread about kris humphries because no Raptor fans know anything about him and would fill in the knowledge-hole with fabricated high opinions.
BTW: Jewish cousins are a bad idea. TWICE I have been dragged out all the way to Toronto to see a 3 hour bar mitzvah. Argh! What's worse? Going to lunch with said jewish vegetarians. Sure, the die-meat-die qualities cross over some, but it is still hell trying to eat 8 different types of beans.
