Patrick Swayze passed away yesterday.
So in memory of him, I thought I'd post one of my all time favorite Saturday Night Live skits (from back in the day when SNL was funny). I'm sure Mr. Swayze wouldn't mind. Isn't it sad that both he and Chris Farley are gone? I wonder if they are giving God the live version of this skit in Heaven this morning. I bet God thinks it's pretty funny, too.
I remember the first time I ever saw Patrick Swayze was in the TV movie North and South. Man, did I think he was handsome. Maybe it was his southern draaaaaawl, maybe it was because I was 12 years old and just starting to notice boys. But I thought he was something else. As we hit the era of Dirty Dancing (a movie that defined a high school generation--yeah, mine. Admit it, we all wish we could've danced like that at prom, but knew the chaperons would jump on us quicker than a bee on honey), I didn't really think he was all that attractive. I will say that he's a heck of a dancer. And he has one of the best lines in movie history....
"Nobody puts Baby in the corner."
For some reason I've kind of liked Patrick Swayze. Most of his movies aren't really my thing. Ghost was okay, but the rest...ehhhh.
I don't know--he just seems like he was a nice guy.
