The Sopranos has been heralded as the best series of all time. The American crime drama first burst onto our screens in January 1999 and due to its incredible popularity ran on HBO for a whopping 86 episodes until 2007. Despite going down in history as one of the best TV shows ever devised, the creator of the cult Mafia series did reveal it almost never got made because the first script didn't feature a single episode. Thankfully, David Chase completely rewrote the show and added some brutal deaths - with 88 unfortunate souls losing their lives across six seasons. At the centre was the late, great James Gandolfini as mob king Tony Soprano, who struggled to balance family life while running a dangerous criminal organisation. While several of the show's cast members were famous before they joined it propelled many into stardom and made household names out of Gandolfini, Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco. The Sopranos paved the way for other violent crime shows and without … [Read more...] about The Sopranos cast now – tragedy, failed music career and vegan pasta sauces
Denver Post Broncos writer Ryan O’Halloran posts his Broncos Mailbag periodically during the offseason. Submit questions to Ryan here . Hi Ryan, I am wondering about the mindset of Drew Lock. I do think he can be a good quarterback if he would stop getting hurt. How is he handling all of this talk about the Broncos looking at quarterbacks in the draft or even bringing one in? I know last year he was told he was outright the starter; now the Broncos say he is their quarterback, but they are looking at other options. This has to be weighing on him mentally and I am sure it will affect his performance during training camp and during the games. — Del, Lamar Lock is a professional so even if he doesn’t like the chatter about his replacement being acquired, he will understand this is a production-based business and if he hadn’t thrown nearly as many interceptions (15) as touchdowns (16) last year, new general manager George Paton would be ready to move forward with him. … [Read more...] about Broncos Mailbag: Would left tackle Penei Sewell be pick at No. 9 if he’s still on board?
By Ryan Wagman, McKeen’s Hockey lead prospect writer After months of waiting, the NHL Draft is suddenly, almost surprisingly, upon us. Round 1 will take place Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN ( livestream ) and Rounds 2-7 be Wednesday beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET on NHL Network. With so much about 2019-20 that didn’t go according to plan (but some that did – congratulations to the Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning!) and so much still unknown about what we can expect out of a 2020-21 season, a draft now seems somewhat anticlimactic. But outside of the fact that hundreds of players and their families – not to mention your humble analyst – will not be gathered in one cavernous hockey arena to experience the event together, there is still a lot to be excited about as we seek to put this traumatizing year behind us and look to a brighter future. I think that is something that fans of all 31 teams can get behind. The contents of this final mock NHL draft are based on the … [Read more...] about NHL Mock Draft: Who gets selected after Alexis Lafrenière?
