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.

Patrick Swayze as I want to remember him.

Patrick Swayze as I want to remember him.

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.
