    The man that will forever be known for his role in Road House (and that other Dirty Dancing film) passed away at age 57.

    And the SNL skit with Chris Farley. Hard to believe they are both gone.

    It's one of my favorite movies, that along with Tango & Cash and Goonies.

    Next of Kin was certainly second to Road House for Swayze movies.

    He taught me that pain don't hurt, and carrying your medical records saves time.

    And that ghosts can make pottery.

    Red Dawn was awesome!

    I don't mean this to sound crass, but does this news mean that there will be a Patrick Swayze movie marathon on some channel very soon, even tomorrow? Some of those movies wouldn't be bad to see again.

    Tango & Cash was Kurt Russell, not Swayze.

    This is a shame. He certainly outlived most medical expectations, though - a relative passed away three months to the day after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He gave it a heck of a fight.

    There are three rules:

    1) take it outside
    2) expect the unexpected
    3) be nice.

    Everyone who cried during unchained melody in ghost, raise your hands......come on.......raise your hands.

    I think both Kurt Russell and Patrick had to put lifts in their shoes for most of their macho roles.

    I have a shirt that says:

    "Crazy for Swayze" on the front and "Be Nice" on the back.

    I wear it a lot.

    Not in this movie, cause he was wearing heels.
