Game 3 featured Neil Young…pretty cool, check it out:
Sad news yesterday…it’s interesting how the passing of certain celebrities will hit you harder than others, and yesterday I was really bummed to hear about James Gandolfini dying…after suffering a massive heart attack in Italy…he was only 51.

Here is the top 10 (some are VERY debatable…Willow? C’mon!):
