Apologies for being two days late on the celebration everybody. I was drowning myself in 4 Lokos and PBR to celebrate the enigma that was Shain “Candy” Gandee and literally just woke up from my bender.
6 years (and 2 days ago) the world lost a rising star in an unfortunate muddin accident that left millions stunned and the town of Charleston West Virginia in mourning (especially the local Go Mart where a Shain would frequently buy Flaming Hot Cheetos and a 30 rack of Busch Light on a fairly regular basis).
While most of the cast of Buckwild has gone on to bigger and better things (countless DUI’s and dealing meth, ya know typical redneck goofin) we’ll always wonder what would’ve happened if Shain hadn’t been tragically taken away from us.
I choose to remember the good times I had (via TV) with the ol Gandee Candee instead of focusing on the overwhelmingly negatives that surrounded him and his posse. So to wrap things up here I’ll end this blog with a few of the memorable moments we were blessed with from our folk hero.
P.S. So guys shotgun a beer tonight and rev those engines. And girls flash your “highbeams” to the sky. It’s what Shain would’ve wanted.
