Coast Guard rescues Russell Crowe after he's lost while kayaking

In his many blockbusters, actor Russell Crowe plays the man of the hour, swooping in to the rescue. But this weekend, he needed a little help of his own.

The Coast Guard plucked the actor and his friend from the waters off New York's Long Island after the pair lost their way while kayaking.

Coast Guard personnel were on a routine patrol in the area when they heard one of the two calling for help Saturday night, Petty Officer Anthony Kozak said.

    "Ok Rafert, you have been convicted of a felony. (more than 200 dollars damage). But we've pulled some strings for you. Rather than going to prison, you can goto lovely Ft. Carson, CO. What say you sign here, and we will arm you and give you a license to kill."

    Trolls is the bad. The bad of which trolls speak of is of no concern.
    The badness is the troll. Otherise, "it's all good" would mean nothing. "It is what it is" would be nothing more than it is: ONE OF THE MOST ANNOYING PHRASES OF ALL TIME.(GOOGLE IT)
    bannish the troll. Allow the troll's words to stand. ty

    All these people should have to pay for the costs of rescue... especially when they are wealthy goofballs climbing mountains etc. The National guard lost Mr Smith during the perfect storm off long island because of ego type guy that wanted to continue sailing his boat.... Heros often die helping idiots....its one thing if it is and accident or a child etc. but not a grown man rowing a kayak out into unknown open water. He could have informed friends or used a compass to get back without wasting a CG chopper and crews time...hollywood goofballz strike again..
