| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Actor Dennis Hopper has died at the age of 74, according to multiple reports. His long career featured several memorable roles, but sports fans will always remember him as Shooter in the timeless "Hoosiers."

Perhaps no film has done the David vs. Goliath story better. Not that it's ever out of the spotlight, but Butler's improbable March Madness run conjured up constant comparisons this spring.

Hopper's performance as a town drunk who finds meaning as an assistant coach earned him an Oscar nomination.
