Patrick Swayze Point Break Memories & Meat Waffles

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on September 14, 2009 5:35 pm

A moment of silence indeed for Mr. Patrick Swayze.  The dude was in Point Break!  One of the all-time, bad but good flicks.  Who can forget all the memorable quotes from Bodhi, Swayze’s evangelizing surfing character.  “Six seconds.  We’re going to be meat waffles.”

If you’ve never seen Point Break, or even if you’re like me and you’ve seen it a hundred times, watch it tonight in memory of Patrick Swayze.

Born in Houston, Texas, Swayze was a trained dancer of the Harkness Ballet and Joffrey ballet schools.  His first gig was dancing for Disney on Parade.  A series of Broadway productions and TV roles followed, until his big break in the classic film The Outsiders.

Swayze succumbed to pancreatic cancer today, September 14, 2009, at the age of 57.  As his character Bodhi said in Point Break, “If you want the ultimate, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It’s not tragic to die doing what you love.”  Amen to that.
