How To Pay Tribute to James Gandolfini’s Life Like Tony Soprano Would

There’s no question that the world lost a phenomenal actor yesterday.

As people across the globe mourn the death of icon James Gandolfini, I’d like to propose an idea. Why not honor Gandolfini, his incredible career, and his all-too-short life in the very way that his best known character would?

I’m certainly not an expert on the afterlife but I like to think there’s a chance he might be able to look down on all of us doing so and get a kick out of it. At the very least, it would be a good time – and if we’ve learned anything from the controversial last scene of the show, it’s to remember the good times.

3 Ways to Pay Tribute to James Gandolfini’s Life Like Tony Soprano Would

1. Pour Yourself a Glenlivet On the Rocks
Tony loved scotch on the rocks and Glenlivet was his “better than ok” brand of choice. (If you’re not a scotch drinker, it’s acceptable to go with red wine instead.)

2. Head to the Humidor and Enjoy a Good Cigar

3. Host a big family dinner (Italian food of course), feed the ducks, do some illegal horse betting, read The Art of War, put on some classic rock, or find something good on The History Channel and forget about it

(or just do what I’m doing and host a Soprano’s marathon where you drink scotch and smoke stogies with your friends.)

Rest in peace Mr. Gandolfini, your legacy (and Tony Soprano’s) will live on forever.

    Glenlivet is a Single Malt scotch and is best drunk straight.
