R.I.P., Dusty Rhodes

The famous wrestler has passed away.

When I was a boy, I used to watch wrestling with my Dad.  I don't remember much of it, since I stopped watching around the age of eight or nine, I suppose, but I remember a few things.  I definitely remember the old Tom Stimus commercials with Dusty Rhodes.  I always thought it odd that Tom pounded on the vans' hoods.  Seemed like a good way to dent them.

Here's another commercial with Tom and Dusty.

Later in his life, Dusty would do commercials for Sinclair Oconee Homes.  At least, that's what my memory tells me.  I can't seem to find one on the internet, though.

He was a colorful character and will be missed.
