Steve Irwin, the perma-khaki-clad Australian host of Animal Planet's "The Crocodile Hunter," was killed Monday while diving off the coast of Australia. People magazine reports
"Irwin, 44, was filming a documentary was about the Great Barrier Reef in northeastern Queensland state when a stingray barb pierced his chest. Irwin leaves behind wife Terri, 42, daughter Bindi, 8, and son Bob, 2."
I've got nothing witty or sarcastic to say about this. Children everywhere adored him, and he seemed like a pretty nice family guy. However, if you were looking for a reason to start drinking early today, this is it. Cheers, mate.

I was actually bummed out when I heard this this morning. But at least he was doing something he loved.

I thought this was some sort of twisted joke, Spanks. I rarely watch the news, so I hadn't heard about this. I feel bad for his family and the children that will forget him. But I guess that's the risk his wife took when she married him. I address that risk by keeping my husband locked up in the bathroom. (this is California, we don't have basements here.)

I had read that his family and wife loved him a lot and thought the world of him.

Why do the nice guys always get killed by stingrays and my ex is still walking the streets??? Reverse karma, baby.

That is the saddest thing I've heard in a long time. This morning I heard CNN posing the question, "how would he be remembered, as a positive contributer to conservation, or as someone who was too flamboyant and went too far?" They asked the question as they showed him feeding the croc while holding his infant son.

That wasn't his greatest moment, no doubt, however, I thought that posing that question the day after his death was in bad taste and a little disrespectful. Steve was great.

Definitely unexpected, though I don't know why. The guy tempted fate at every turn. I suppose the fact that he'd had such good fortune so far makes it seem as though he was indestructible.

One hell of a freak accident. Sounds so cliche' but I think, "I'm shocked and saddened" about covers it.

thanks, 'cheeks, i didn't know the whole story when i posted last night.
i seem to recall an interview or artical i saw a few years ago. both he and his wife were aware that anything could happen at anytime. but for all the weird stuff he did, i think this counts as a freak accident. i've never heard of this happening before!
rest in peace, mate.
