Rock On: Advice from Eastwood

Published: Monday, Feb. 10 2014 6:11 p.m. MST


Things got scary, last week, when the director of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am began choking on a cube of cheese at a dinner party. But who should come to the rescue?

Dirty Harry himself.

Clint Eastwood performed the Heimlich maneuver on Steve John.

John said in an Associated Press story that he was unable to breathe but Eastwood was quick to react. “He recognized it immediately and saved my life.”

There’s been much speculation as to what Eastwood could have said afterward, i.e. “made my day,” “do ya feel lucky,” etc.

Rock On prefers the sage advice of the outlaw Josey Wales: “Dyin’ ain’t much of a livin’, boy.”
