RIP Paul Newman

Obituary here. I'm going to have to go and watch Slapshot again, I think.

Everybody should watch Slapshot again.

Just for the heckfire of it!

(truth be told, I always wondered why, given his stature, why Newman made that movie....)

The only real speculation I've heard about it is that he was just looking to do something different. Strangely, given the film's current popularity, it was a move that actually backfired on him a bit at the time.
