Paul Newman dead at 83
Rest in peace, Mr. Newman. I am a huge fan of Newman in Cool Hand Luke and of course, Slap Shot. Newman once said of Slap Shot: "Ever since Slap Shot I've been swearing more," he said. "I knew I had a problem one day when I turned to my daughter and said, 'Would you please pass the f---g salt?"
Hilarious. I didn't mind his salad dressing either.
There is a great story on Newman's life here.
A great piece by Wyshynski about what Newman meant to hockey can be found here.
Below, Newman brings out the Hansons:
Great little piece of Cool Hand Luke cinema right here:
