Reggie Dunlop R.I.P.

The world lost one of it's greatest actors and humanitarians this week with the passing of Paul Newman. Old Blue Eyes career spanned over 50 years, entertaining everyone from my grandparents (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), to my 4 year old son (Cars). During that 50+ years he was married to the same woman. "Why go out for hamburger, when you got steak at home?" In between, he raised over $250 Million dollars for charity. A charity that started off by selling salad dressing. Makes you wonder what we all may be capable of?

My favorite Paul Newman movie of all time is Slap Shot. This film could arguably be called the best sports movie of all-time. Its definitely got to make every ones top 5. The dialogue in this movie is awesome. Take a look at this classic scene from the fashion show
So I invite you guys to celebrate a real man's man. Pop "Slap Shot", "Cool Hand Luke", or "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", in the old DVD player. Get yourself something to snack on like Newman's Own Salsa w/ Chips, or some Newman's Own popcorn, and grab a cold one. Because its true what they say "they just don't make them like they used to".
