Long Live Patrick Swayze

I was 12 years old when I saw the movie Road House.

Monster Trucks, Killer Tits, Roundhouse Kicks with a Knife Boot, an Elder Master and a Superior Disciple.

Road House was 114 minutes of awesome, and this was how I was introduced to the man known as Swayze.

The Swayze SNL outing was also one of the funniest television viewing experiences of my life. Watching it live was to be part of something. When guests like Swayze kill it like he did on SNL - TV is at its finest. I hope SNL runs that episode this week.

I remember watching the movie Black Dog and then driving too fast around Welland, getting chased by other people who just saw Black Dog. Barney was driving and kept yelling “MFC Mother Fucking Chevette” as he would peel around the streets of the Rose City. (we were stuffed into a borrowed Chevette.)

I remember going on a date to see Ghost, and then slow dancing to unchained melody at local teen dances.

Patrick Swayze has been a part of my life for some time now, and I am saddened to hear of his passing.

Every year I will remember this man by watching his films. Sept 14th is Swayzeday.

My friend Davey J (AKA Nasal Montego) asked me the following question at our mutual friend Beldor’s wedding. “If you were to do it all over again, and actually do well in school this time; what would you go to school for?” I replied “A ZOOLOGIST”. Davey J said “Good Answer.”

I pass the question on to all of you.
