Aw man. It’s just so sad to lose your first crush, even if you didn’t know him in real life. I first fell for Patrick Swayze when I was 7 years old and saw “Dirty Dancing.” I felt so naughty because I knew I shouldn’t be watching that movie, but I wanted to be Baby Houseman SO badly and I wanted Patrick Swayze to come and teach me how to dance.

Nobody puts Baby in a corner, indeed.

Swayze has been battling pancreatic cancer for two years and finally succumbed today at the age of 57 in Los Angeles. He had continued to work on his A&E series “The Beast” while undergoing treatment for the cancer and garnered very positive reviews from critics and fans alike for his portrayal of a corrupt FBI agent.
RIP Johnny Castle.
