Patrick Swayze, 1952-2009. R.I.P.

Actor Patrick Swayze lost his battle with pancreatic cancer today. He was 57.

Swayze was best known for his roles in films like Dirty Dancing and Ghost.

But Swayze cut his teeth as a dancer. And when I think of Swayze I think of the time he hosted Saturday Night Live and did the Chippendales skit with Chris Farley. I remember when the skit aired live and how loudly my whole family laughed. As funny as Farley was it was genius because Swayze played it straight.

Sadly, both of these gifted men are now gone.
