"Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin is dead

Just coming in from the wire that Steve Irwin, the much-beloved "Crocodile Hunter", has been killed. Apparently he took a stingray barb through the chest while filming an underwater documentary.

What a tragedy. He seemed to be a man who really enjoyed his work. And he has such a beautiful family - his wife Terri and two kids - also.

Darn, this is just so wrong. This was a guy who was everywhere over the past ten years or so. He even had his own movie, Collision Course, that came out one time. I watched it on HBO a few years ago and it was pretty good.

Well, what else can be said? He was definitely a one-of-a-kind character.

EDIT 03:10 PM EST: About five years ago when Jurassic Park III was hitting theaters, those wacky guys at WWWF Grudge Match pitched a battle between Steve Irwin and the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park. It was pretty hilarious and of course Irwin being the Crocodile Hunter(tm) he won handily. This matchup pretty much summed up the kind of character that Irwin was so in honor of the the work that he did, here is the link to Steve "Crocodile Hunter" Irwin versus Jurassic Park.

This absolutely breaks my heart. Irwin was one of those precious few people who truly loved life and lived it to the fullest. Much honor to a wonderful human being and much love to his family.
