Penn: Not a Jew.
Suggestions from Juan from Texas and Ashley from Cambridge, MA.
We got a bunch of Hitchens suggestions before, but after he died... Well, it got to a point where this had to be written.

Personally, I find this site fun and free of any unhealthy aspect, unlike a software application of the same name was a scandal recently.
And here's the translation of our Emil Jellinek article.
I've actually never seen an episode of "Lost". Or "Alias". But Yakov convinced me to see "Super 8", and I quite enjoyed it...
Abrams was suggested by Layla from London, Pablo from Venezuela, Esther from Canada, Jones from California, Eddie from the Netherlands, Cheryl from Passaic, NJ, and Mike from Mexico City.
No, he probably is not the worst quarterback even if Lions history. Anyone remember Andre Ware?
Orlovsky was suggested by Bob from Rockville, MD, Robert from Cherry Hill, NJ, Mike from New Jersey, and Randy from Los Angeles.
I caved and watched the two seasons of "Louie". It's... often quite good, but I wouldn't exactly call it a comedy.
Suggestions by Moishe from La Jolla, Josh from Minnesota, Jacob from Toronto, Poktanju from Michigan, Itchy from NYC, and Josh from Santa Cruz, CA.
We didn't originally plan to run this on December 7th, but when it came up in the queue, it just made sense.
Not to be confused with race car driver Mauri Rose...
Rose was suggested by Ed from Olds Mar, FL, Scott from Bemidji, MN, Jerry from Virginia, and Steven from Slingerlands, NY.
Stones was suggested by SJ from Huntington Beach, but also by Lynda from California... We couldn't say no to you, Lynda!
I'll always remember Stones fondly from The Dream League, an ESPN game show he hosted in the mid-90s...
Thanks, commenter. Not a Jew. Details here.
Sindelar's goal against France in the 1934 World Cup means at least two Jews have scored at the world's biggest stage: Sindelar and Mordechai Spiegler.
Thanks to Patrick from Cork City for the suggestion.
The latest victim of Azaria's abilities was the American re-make of the British comedy, Free Agents, which last a whole four episodes on NBC. Yikes. Still, we can't help but like Hank for his Simpsons stuff, and well, maybe one of these days we'll get suckered into something good for a change...
Azaria was suggested by Harvey from Shaftsbury, VT, Devi from Winter Park, FL, Bruce from LA, Arthur from NYC, Simon from UK, Blair from Chicago, Ben from Spain, Daniel from New York, and Kristine from Florida.
I am 100% Jewish. My father’s parents were deeply religious, we had two sets of silverware when we went and ate over there. My mother’s side observed the major holidays. It was more relaxed. I went to Hebrew School as well. [...] I consider myself a progressive Jew.
However, strange for someone so accomplished, she is missing from both the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. And she was definitely inducted to the latter. So if one is to believe that she became a born-again Christian (maybe that's her definition of "Progressive Jew"), that would add up.
However, she does consider herself Jewish... Borderline Jew it is.
Poor Rachel, forever lost behind Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Ana Gasteyer. At least, her lovers with Will Ferrell never failed to crack me up. Debbie Downer, on the other hand...
Rachel was suggested by D. from Philadelphia.
Matthau has been in our queue for seemingly years, but he deserves his due.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Suggestions from Pat from New York, Brendan from New York, Silvio from San Marino(!), Michael from Canada, and Joshua from Texas.
Nicknamed "The Bronx Bull", and portrayed in Robert De Niro's 1980 film "Raging Bull", Boxing legend Jake LaMotta not only had a Jewish mother, but as he revealed to TJ, has also married four different Jewish women.
