Late night open thread

Oh what a giant of a man we lost yesterday. Classy, humble, amazingly talented and a humanitarian for the ages, we are all lessened by Paul Newman's passing. Beyond the brilliant acting, beyond his 50 year marriage to Joanne Wodward and beyond the 200 million dollars his Newman's Own products have raised for charity since their launch, a real piece of the American fabric was lost. Newman transcended celebrity, Johnny has yet to see a cross word written about the man or his life today.

He was, quite simply, Johnny's favorite actor ever. A few good minutes with Paul Newman tonight...

Language warning as Newman as player coach Reg Dunlop fires up the Charlestown Chiefs before a game against the Saginaw Gears and really reaches the Hanson Brothers.

Time for Ypsilanti, After Dark
