Industry icon, Sylvester Stallone, has for the greater part of his career been a symbol of god versus evil. His role in Rocky, Rambo and the Expendables pits his character against forces of oppression. Mr. Stallone has special meaning to me because of certain life coincidences. He is the spitting image of my good buddy and shipmate Rocko. I say that due to the fact that my buddy Rocko was there before Sly Stallone made it to the mainstream silver screen. Their similarity does not stop at physical appearance it extends to character. So, to me Sylvester Stallone is much more than a commodity.
I want to take this opportunity to extended my sincerest condolences to Sylvester on the loss of his son. Times such as these are always difficult but I hope he’ll continue being a force for good taking the fight to oppression and evil.
