Re: Generals Folding

Who's Dickie Dunn? The announcer from Slapshot?

Wonderfully talented, heavyset character actor (from New York, but regularly playing Southerners) M. Emmet Walsh has made a solid career of playing corrupt cops, deadly crooks, and zany comedic roles since the early 1970s.

Michael Emmet Walsh was born in Ogdensburg, to Agnes Katharine (Sullivan) and Harry Maurice Walsh, a customs agent. He is of Irish descent. Walsh first appeared in a few fairly forgettable roles both on TV and onscreen before cropping up in several well remembered films, including a courtroom police officer in What's Up, Doc? (1972), as the weird Dickie Dunn in Slap Shot (1977).

Re: Generals Folding

Sorry to say for those hoping but they aren't folding. They are recruiting and committed to next year. You think the owners are going to pay a lot of money for a team and walk away? Have you been to a game? They aren't good but have pieces to build on for next year. Owners aren't bad dudes and in it for right reasons.

Re: Generals Folding

Good luck to them. I'm sure if TL is coaching they will at the very least be respectable.
