The Croc Hunter Ruled!!

The Croc Hunter Ruled!!, originally uploaded by mightymerk.

A mightymerk favorite, Steve Irwin has passed in what can only be described as a tragic and freak event. Better known throughout the world as the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin was snorkeling at Batt Reef when he stirred a stingray that was concealed beneath the sand at the bottom of the ocean. The 6"-10" barb of the normally docile animal pierced Steve's chest and through his heart. He was killed almost instantly.

I loved the Crocodile Hunter. Most of my friends loved the Crocodile Hunter and most importantly my young children loved the Crocodiel Hunter.

I have many fond memories of playing the Crocodile Hunter board game with my children. My flight to Germany a few years back when I got to view Collission Course (a movie Steve Irwin starred in) in which a Swedish fella and I got to laugh it up over a few beers. Most importantly I am going to miss the guys enthusiasm. He was truly doing what he loved and you could tell every time you saw him.

Rest In Peace Crocodile Hunter...You Ruled!!!
