Paul Newman 1925-2008

Paul Newman passed away today. Once on a skate trip to California some friends and I saw them filming a Paul Newman movie in Santa Monica, right near the triple set on the beach. Our friend Derek from Germany was with use and as we were driving away from where they were filming he yelled out "Paul Newman, you suck and you're lemonade burns my throat!" He yelled it super loud, Mr. Newman definitely heard him. I don't think Derek even knew who Paul Newman was, someone just feed him the line and he shouted it out. It was pretty funny, but the truth is Paul Newman doesn't suck. He was a bad ass, and I could watch Cool Hand Luke a couple thousand more times. His Lemonade is also delicious and refreshing. Rest in peace.
