The "Godfather" of the Sopranos died suddenly of an apparent heart attack yesterday while vacationing in of all places ITALY.

By all account Gandolfini was a HUGE (like his physical persona and self) sports fan, and had just recently attended a private sports banquet honoring his man Mohamed Ali in of course...VEGAS.

From what I understand the guy was an ordinary truck driver until he got the acting bug at around 25, and the rest is history. I get a kick out of seeing celebrities in "B" movies or TV shows now, and I've even seen JG in a few of late.

Here's to a fellow sports fan, and a pretty good actor to boot. RIP Godfather.
