Steve Irwin dies, reportedly killed by stingray on diving trip. Somehow I always thought that he would go by gator or heart attack, so this seems little "whimpy," but then again, how many survive a stingray barb to the heart?
I am sure some jokes will be made at his expense, but keep in mind, he had two kids: a daughter that just turned eight and a son whose probably close to two (their website seems to be down, no doubt from tons of requests). Not to mention his wife, a woman I always considered to be close to snapping half the time. Maybe this will be another rumor like how he supposedly died from a croc attack and a venemous snake bite in previous years, but... well, I liked him. He might have been nuts, but look who I hang around; he would have fit in with the lot of you.
