I watched Slapshot last week for the first time in years, and was struck by how well it holds up... funnier than hell, but at its core a brutal level of honesty that you just don't see in movies anymore. It's sad to realize that a movie like Slapshot (or a leading character like Reg Dunlop) could never be made today.

God bless Paul Newman, he will be sorely missed.

Thanks Kim.


Reggie Dunlop: What are you guys doing?

Steve Hanson: Puttin' on the foil!

Jeff Hanson: Every game!

Jack Hanson: Yeah, you want some?

That's what I want to do. Put on the foil and play hockey for Reggie Dunlop (Paul Newman)
