Rowdy Roddy Piper tribute post

Roddy Piper die of a heart attack recently at age 61.  I used to be a big “sports entertainment” buff and fondly remember Piper for his attitude and over the top antics in and outside the ring.  But I also remember him for his first and greatest film appearance in the John Carpenter classic “They Live”  which along with being a classic if not odd film about secret aliens among us and special “eighties” style dark shades that allowed you to see the aliens, it is mostly remember for two things, one of the most iconic and memorable unscripted speeches of all time (by Piper no less) (see the first video)  and of course one of the longest and most memorable fight scenes of all time. (see video 2)  RIP Roddy Piper 2015
