http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/20/showbiz/gandolfini-main/ As many have heard since the news broke late yesterday afternoon, the actors guild lost a true sports fan in James Gandolfini. By all accounts a somewhat trouble man (as we all are at times) in this world, but recently getting his life back with a new wife and child. From what I've heard, he got the acting bug around 25 years of age after doing some jobs as a truck driver of all things. The rest is as they say is history. His biggest claim to fame in acting was of course "The Boss" of the New Jersey crime family known as the Sopranos. A very good show that had every TV outlet news service commenting they were hooked on the show, and couldn't wait for the next show or season to start. Just ask anyone on the TODAY Show who was around back then. YIKES! JG had recently attend a special sports banquet honoring his favorite sports figure Mohammed Ali in Las Vegas, and then left for his native country of ancestry Italy for some needed R&R. It was there he suffered an apparent heart attack that took his life. Strange...how the celebrities get all the fuss, and the locals who this happens too only gets an obit in the local town paper. If that. It is what is....so the saying goes...eh?! RIP Godfather of Jersey.

At least we know what killed JG...we still don't know about Tony Soprano.
