    I can't believe it. And to make matters worse, no disrespect intended, he went down to a stingray. I always assumed a snake would get him... :'(

    I never liked him, but it's a real shame none the less. Very shocking to hear he was killed [​IMG]

    Granted, I never really cared about the guy, I never went out of my way to watch his show. It's just amazing that the man finally went down. I knew it was going to happen eventually, and I know it sucks. Him being on that random ESPN commercial was great.

    Truly sadening news. Delivered after a night of heavy drinking, one can't help but blame themselves for the demise of a beloved figure. RIP Steve, we'll miss you.

    I didn't watch his show often, but he was someone who you just have to like...too bad [​IMG]

    I never knew stingrays could actually kill people...I thought they were completely harmless

    Stingray didn't correctly insulate his flashing tool [​IMG]


    Seriously though, I've watched him for years, very sad news...
    I think it's safe to say he led a full life, all nine of 'em.
    RIP

    Different sites are reporting that a stingray barb went through his chest/heart.

    Brutal.

    I loved his shows, may he rip and never be forgotten.

    loved his quotes;

    "What a beauty, look at the spots on its back!"
    and my favourite
    "crickey!"

    I really loved his work.
