Story 113
Patrick Swayze - In the spring of 1988, my (then) girlfriend read that the cast of "Road House" would be in town at a local high school to play a benefit softball game. They were filming in the foothills above Clovis, Ca. I don't remember who they were be playing, but my girlfriend wanted to go to see Patrick Swayze. So I took my camera and we went. We were able to sit on the third base line. I got some nice pictures of Sam Elliott and he waved and said "Hi." He spent most of the day talking with and signing stuff for the fans. Then about half way through the game, Patrick Swayze arrived with Kelly Lynch. They just kind of walked from the first base line, behind home plate and up the third base line towards us. People were yelling and waving at them but they seemed kind of stand-offish as they came our way. As they got near, I shouted "Hey, Mr. Swayze, how about taking a picture with my girlfriend?". Expecting him to brush me off or, at best say something like "Not today" I was shocked when he stopped, took my girlfriend's hand and told me "Real Fast". For a moment I was caught off guard, but recovered in time to take a nice shot of him and her. I ended up making over a dozen copies of the photo for friends and family. I still have the photo, but not the girlfriend.
