Steve Irwin, the hugely popular Australian television personality and conservationist known as the "Crocodile Hunter," was killed Monday by a stingray while filming off the Great Barrier Reef. He was 44.
I am so sad, I really enjoyed what Steve brought into my television while he was with us.
It was some Good TV.
I love the way he talked, especially when he was referring to a crockadile...
" Isn't she a beauty! "
sad indeed. still... alas... it was a bit forseeable, don't you think? i mean, spending day in day out with dangerous species can't be exactly a safe thing to do. he was a true original, though, and will be missed by many. just would like to add that my deepest sympathy goes to his family, and that i wish them all the best in trying to stick through this hardest of times.
Not to kill the mood but it was bound to happen. At the time, he was recording for a documentary called Ocean's Deadliest. But this is kind of disappointing, even though people in my area don't watch his show.
Also, I noticed that the article on Steve Irwin on Wikipedia is getting about 4-6 changes per minute.
