    Dammit. Hopefully he's got a seat at the Aces up above.

    Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.

    Reggie Dunlop.

    My favorite Newman role.

    This just stinks. Prayers and condolences to his family.

    Just last night I flipped past an old movie with him and Julie Andrews....just in time for a classic old movie screen kiss. God, that man could do a movie kiss.

    83 is a lifetime, but still so sad. RIP to one of the greats. I'm going to hum 'Raindrops Keep Fallin on My Head' all day.

    I don't ever remember him doing a bad job in any movie.

    Hell, he was good just with his voice in "Cars."

    RIP, indeed.

    I feel the need to go eat 50 hard boiled eggs.
    RIP. My world has been getting a little less fun with each passing day and it took a big dip with this news.

    RIP Reggie.

    Hope that the Chiefs are selling out in the great rink above.

    The last of the true movie stars, who was also a superb actor. Lived one hell of an enjoyable and admirable life. A sad day, but Newman really got the maximum possible out of his alloted time on earth.

    When I was a senior in high school (1990), for some reason, the entire school met in the auditorium to watch a movie. The film of choice: Cool Hand Luke. It might have been the first time most of the kids watched a movie made before 1978. It was a huge hit that day and remains one of my favorite movies to this day. Newman's egg-eating scene is a classic.

    It seemed like a good, round number.
