    RIP: Steve Irwin

    Nature finally won.

    Steve Irwin, the Croc Hunter finally met his match. A stingray barb through the heart was no match. He died almost instantly.

    while not a fan, any unnecessary death is not good. especially for ones family.

    Like him or not he definetly "lived" his life. I feel for his wife and children.

    I too always wondered if he would tempt fate one time too many - saw many instances where he nearly ''bought it''.

    This tho somewhat of a sad twist - but he will sure leave some classic material behind.

    I didn't watch his regrets to his family; his children won't get to know their father as they grow-up which is the true tragedy.

    Darn, that's too bad, I liked that show, too. My favorite was when they were trying to pull a huge boa constrictor out of a little cave and it decided to latch onto his wife's knee.....

    Everybody that knew him said that he was as nice of a guy off camera as on camera.
    So he was not a fake sort of person.
    Poor Wife & Kids...they must be totally devastated.

    I Was Shocked...

    and I feel badly for his family. He took chances far beyond anything I would consider doing! When the new flash first crossed the screen, I thought a croc caught him...he was certainly 'his own man'.

    Classic fella, classic shows, and the final twist - a dramatic death scene. Sad, and his family must miss that twinkle in his eyes.

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Sometimes when you live life on the edge the edge wins. I agree, he will be missed.
