Patrick Swayze Article

If this is truly the case, then that is some sad news I guess. Personally, I wasn’t a fan of anything he did(even roadhouse). About the only thing I decently liked from him was that cheap ass movie Black Dog and the marginal role he had in Donnie Darko. If this is the honest to god truth though, that is certainly getting the short end of the stick and prayers go out to him. I read this article and saw the headlines and didn’t believe it, also this comes from supposedly the National Enquirer(which sells garbage).

It’s a pretty crazy thing to break the news and say a person has 5 weeks to live. If this story isn’t true, or doesn’t have any leg to stand on, I would be suing the pants off of this magazine if I was him.

I don’t know what it is anymore. People have no common courtesy to leave people be when they are in times of trouble if they are famous. I understand it was their choice to be famous or their choice that they have to endure what has been created, but I certainly believe that after a certain time it should shut off.

There is so much money being handed to paps, for the photo of someone sneezing or someone doing something stupid. Maybe thats whats so wrong with this country, or people like us read about this stuff and soak it up like its going to play some important role in our life. I am guilty for the latter, I do read the celeb stuff, because I find it incredibly stupid how some people can be and willingly do it again because they are so concerned with how famous they are.

I guess thats about it for today, if the story is true, then best of luck and prayers to Swayze. It’s a tough life sometimes, but we gotta work with the cards were dealt I suppose…..

Man, I still can’t believe Myron Cope has passed away today. I remember my dad listening to him during games with the sound off saying “Phil Simms is the worst announcer I have ever heard, put on the radio and lets listen to Cope.” I can safely say at the time, I always thought it was ridiculous because my brother and I would get yelled at for leaving a light on. But for two to three hours on a Sunday, he would have both the T.V. and the old radio, blasting at the same time.

I guess you could say, more or less, that I now understand what he brought to the Steeler’s and how it changed Sunday and made it better for us fans. Nobody wants to listen to the announcers on T.V. if your a Steeler’s fan, because mostly it seems that if every game, they are always against us, and never point out anything good. It’s always so negative. I to this day still turn DVE on because honest to god, I can’t stand Phill Simms and Troy Aikmen, when either of them are announcing, I instinctively turn that radio on.

I guess, you can consider it a game day tradition, that my father instilled in me because he loved hearing Cope and the gang actually represent the Steeler’s and not negative talk for the most part(only when they had boneheaded plays.) A tradition that Myron Cope played a part in. A tradition that made Steeler football games that much better. A tradition that will continue even without the legend himself. Not because I or any other fan wants it to, but because it was his time to watch the football games from the sky. R.I.P. Myron Cope 1929-2008.
