Hey Kid: Take the Cannoli

I have an annual birthday tradition.  Each year, on or around my birthday, I watch two of my favorite movies:  The Godfather and The Godfather Part II.  (There is a third one, and I guess you have to watch it once, but once is more than enough.)  As much as I love the first one... I really love the second movie with all of the flashbacks and RobertDe Niro.

"A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man."

Sadly, I am alone in my family when it comes to my obsession with these films.  Chief indulges me each year by sitting through them but he's not a big fan.  (Hence the reason it's a birthday tradition... he feels guilty if he misses out.)  Each year when the first one is over, he always says... "That is one loooong movie!"

"I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse."

I'm hoping you will share my appreciation for these films and all things "mafia" in general.  It's just fascinating.  These movies are classics and when we're through with these, we'll move on to another favorite, mafia classic... Goodfellas.
