Steve Irwin: The Man, The Myth, The Legend

Famous crocodile hunter Steve Irwin died today of an apparent sting ray stinger to the heart. It's pretty amazing what has happened since his death, just about everybody I talked to liked the guy in some way. His enthusiasm and geniune nature made just about no one be annoyed by him which is pretty impressive in show biz. I bet that'd be the way he'd want to go out too, in the field doing what he loved.

Anyway, I will always remember where I was when I found out that Steve Irwin the crocodile hunter died: downstairs in my basement doing my laundry for the first time in my life. Coincidence? You tell me. All I'm saying is that I'm not sure that it's worth the risk.
