A few weeks back the world lost a pretty cool actor in James Gandolfini. Now, although I enjoyed his acting abilities, I wouldn't say he was a "hero" of mine. So why is it that his sudden passing has kinda' affected me the way it has? I think I finally "put a finger on it" a few days ago..Jimmy and I are the same age!! I mean, here's a guy who has the world right where he wants it, and.....BANG-GONE!!!! And he's 51 freakin years old!!! So now I'm like..."Hey, let's go on a hot air balloon ride" or "Anyone wanna join me on a wild boar hunt in Georgia?". Yep, thanks to Tony Soprano's unfortunate death, now all the sudden my "bucket list" has taken on a newfound importance! All kidding aside though, live, love, laugh, enjoy, because our time here really is kinda' short.
