OMG, FOUR--- count 'em, FOUR icons in two weeks!

I guess this will bump all that Michael Jackson shit off the front page.

This has been an unbelievable week:

TAMPA, Fla.—Tampa police say Billy Mays, the television pitchman known for his boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean, has died. He was 50.
Authorities say Mays was pronounced dead Sunday morning after being found by his wife at home. There were no signs of a break-in, and investigators do not suspect foul play. The coroner's office expects to have an autopsy done by Monday afternoon.
Mays' wife, Deborah Mays, says the family doesn't expect to make any public statements and asked for privacy.
Mays was also featured on the reality TV show "Pitchmen" on the Discovery Channel, which followed Mays and Anthony Sullivan in their marketing jobs.
Discovery Channel spokeswoman Elizabeth Hillman released a statement Sunday extending sympathy to the Mays family.
"Everyone that knows him was aware of his larger-than-life personality, generosity and warmth," Hillman's statement said. "Billy was a pioneer in his field and helped many people fulfill their dreams. He will be greatly missed as a loyal and compassionate friend."

Why must God take all the legends from us at once?  I guess He needed an Orange Glo in heaven.  R.I.P.

Wasn't he just on Conan with his Pitchman co-host this past week? This one sucks; I kind of liked Billy Mays.

I actually thought this guy was kind of cool.  I think they'll be bringing the Shamwow guy in for questioning.

He was involved in some type of airplane malfunction a day or so ago, and they had to make an emergency landing, and somebody said he may have struck his head during the landing.  He seemed okay. 

Weird stuff.

Billy Mays is neither an Icon or a legend at anything. He was an obnoxious, loud individual who did nothing but annoy me and many others. Im sure he was a nice person and never set forest fires and was nice to children.  Good throw a party, he annoyed me. If he sold well thats great. I am sorry for his family and hope they get thru this time as best as they can.

I liked that ESPN360 commercial he did. "Live sports comes in through your internet connection!" And you see cartoon tennis balls, basketballs, etc...floating across a wire.
