The Zen of Swayze

Then Bodhi subsides to Reef.
So Dalton sank to grief,
Red Dawn turns into day.
Nothing gold can stay.

What is the Zen of Swayze?

Soviet invasion couldn’t bring Jed and Toni together; but they always had the Catskills. That’s the Zen of Swayze.

From trailer trash buddies to hockey rivals, Rob and Patrick, the movie duo not given its due. That’s the Zen of Swayze.

Rednecks vs. Soviets is epic. Rednecks vs. rednecks is WWF. Factor in martial arts and it’s exponentially awesome. That’s the Zen of Swayze.

And finally…

Jed, Dalton, Capt Scott, Nomad and even Ghost Sam kicked ass. Enemies that were bigger and badder they they. And won. But tragically defeated after bravely fighting cancer, a nasty microscopic killer. That’s the Zen of Swayze.

Rest in peace.

PS: Hat tip also to Brian for illuminating the mysteries of the Zen of Swayze.
