Steve Irwin, the Croc Hunter dies

Steve Irwin

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.Irwin was at Batt Reef, off the remote coast of northeastern Queensland state, shooting a segment for a series called “Ocean’s Deadliest” when he swam too close to one of the animals, which have a poisonous bard on their tails, his friend and colleague John Stainton said.“He came on top of the stingray and the stingray’s barb went up and into his chest and put a hole into his heart,” said Stainton, who was on board Irwin’s boat at the time.Crew members aboard the boat, Croc One, called emergency services in the nearest city, Cairns, and administered CPR as they rushed the boat to nearby Low Isle to meet a rescue helicopter. Medical staff pronounced Irwin dead when they arrived a short time later, Stainton said.Irwin was famous for his enthusiasm for wildlife and his catchword “Crikey!” in his television program “Crocodile Hunter.” First broadcast in Australia in 1992, the program was picked up by the Discovery network, catapulting Irwin to international celebrity.He rode his image into a feature film, 2002’s “The Crocodile Hunters: Collision Course” and developed the wildlife park that his parents opened, Australia Zoo, into a major tourist attraction.“The world has lost a great wildlife icon, a passionate conservationist and one of the proudest dads on the planet,” Stainton told reporters in Cairns. “He died doing what he loved best and left this world in a happy and peaceful state of mind. He would have said, ‘Crocs Rule!’

“Because when they strike it can be that quick that if they’re within range, you’re dead, you’re dead in your tracks. And his head weighs more than my body, so it’s WHACK!”
Steve Irwin (1962-2006) – Actual quote

Prime Minister John Howard, who hand-picked Irwin to attend a gala barbecue to honor President Bush when he visited in 2003, said he was “shocked and distressed at Steve Irwin’s sudden, untimely and freakish death.”
“It’s a huge loss to Australia,” Howard told reporters. “He was a wonderful character. He was a passionate environmentalist. He brought joy and entertainment and excitement to millions of people.” 
Irwin, who made a trademark of hovering dangerously close to untethered crocodiles and leaping on their backs, spoke in rapid-fire bursts with a thick Australian accent and was almost never seen without his uniform of khaki shorts and shirt and heavy boots.

Steve died doing what he loved to do best. He played with death for so many times, it finally caught up with him. He went with a blast, though!

The “Big Babies” and the Gentlemen of the World Cup.

Once again we have witnessed who the “Big Babies” of the World Cup Tournament are: the Argentineans.

These disgusting people believe that they are so worth it, they were actually created by hand to perfection.

So stupid and so lame, and so far from the truth.

We’ve seen it time and again. I remember the final game in 1990 against Germany, they had such a hard time accepting defeat, they started charging against the Referee.

Then, Maradona was ejected in the next World Cup. His comments? Quote: “They cut our legs”. But, he didn’t say the same when he personally violated the rules of soccer by scoring a goal with his own hand and got away with it against Germany back in 1986, right?

Yesterday, they were eliminated by Germany and started a fight at the end of the game.

It’s always an excuse, isn’t it? Why won’t you grow up? You are not Europeans as you believe, you’re Latin-American, like the rest of the Continent from Mexico below, the closest similarity you have of being European is that you are as snob as the French; and perhaps you should learn how Gentlemen accept they were defeated and the other team was better.

Take it from England. Yes, it was tough, but at least they acted like the Gentlemen they are.

Terrel Owens joins the Cowboys!

Terrell Owens

It’s official, the controversial wide receiver has joined the Dallas Cowboys to a 3 year deal, as announced today at a press conference set by owner Jerry Jones and Terrel’s agent.

I do care about this transaction, and I do care about my team. Personally, if this guy can benefit the organization and truly be the kind of teamplayer, the kind of a better man he wants to be, on and off the field, then I welcome him as a Cowboy; pending of course, the fulfillment of the promise he’s making to embrace the star.

I also, expect him to apologize not just in words, but in his actions as well, about the star incidents that he had in Dallas a few years ago, and that took a person like Emmitt Smith to defend his beloved star, as expected!

We’ll see!
