R.I.P. - Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter 1962 - 2006

Steve Irwin, the Australian television personality and environmentalist known as The Crocodile Hunter, was killed Monday by a stingray during a diving expedition, Australian media said. He was 44.

I always got a kick outta old Steve. I even saw his movie that they made a few years back. He was a daredevil of the highest order. Messin' with crocs and snakes, and all sorts of creepy-crawly creatures was like playing with fire. Everyone who ever watched him probably thought what I thought. How long until he actually gets a fatal bite or something and doesn't pull through? They even made a soda commercial or something joking about that. But, he loved his calling and knew the risks.

Kudos Steve, you were an original. You will be missed.
