    Especially being a Law & Order buff, this is very disappointing.

    Re: RIP Dennis Farina

    One of the quintessential 70's and 80's character guys.

    I never did quite feel right with him on Unsolved Mysteries, but he did a good job there too.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Former Chicago cop.

    First thing I remember him in was a great period cop show called Crime Story (they used a cover of Del Shannon's "runaway" as the theme song)

    Dude turned into a great actor

    I really enjoyed the first season of that show. It jumped the shark after it went to Vegas.

    Crime Story still comes to mind for me. That, and I had a trainer at a job once who was from Chicago with the last name Farina. I kept intending to ask her if she was related, but never got around to it.

    I always figured he was a lot like the characters he played.
