Billy Mays Dies

 

sad Billy Mays, pitchman icon, dies after hitting his head on a rough airline flight.

Had to share this.

I mentioned to my wife that Billy Mays had died. She replied "that's awful! I can't believe Willie Mays is gone." I guess there are a few people that didn't know him.

Can't believe it

Yea, that is unbelievable. I live in the Tampa area and we heard it early yesterday. On Saturday he was interviewed on local TV about the hard landing and said he hit his head.

Willie vs. Billy

You should have told your wife so she could pick the right Mays, one was an outfielder and the other a pitcher.

Not So Fast

Billy was of an age where he might indeed have named for baseball star Willie Mays. I'm sure there's a story there somewhere.

Yeah, so everybody assumed Billy died yesterday of a subdural hematoma or some other issue related to bumping his head, because that can happen. Hit your head, go to sleep, nobody's monitoring you to make sure you're okay, you can deteriorate markedly or even die after a head injury. But the preliminary ruling is that there was no sign of head trauma and the flight had nothing to do with Billy's death. They think his death was a result of heart disease.

RIP Billy Mays

Billy Mays was quite a pitch man. We just watched an entertaining news story on him just a few weeks ago. It is ashamed that he died.

wow

bad time for icons, I guess.

Much to young

Coronors Report

According to the Coronors report there was no sign of head trauma, but he had hypertensive heart disease, which he said is a common cause of sudden death.

Heart Disease

Actually, it was heart disease.

He will be missed

He will be missed

This is just sad, I enjoyed

This is just sad, I enjoyed watching his commercial.

Intrusive Pitchman

Although advertisers are paying for commercial television broadcasts, they are guests in my home. When they shout, though I dive for the remote mute button, I resent their presence.

When Vince heard, he couldn't believe it. He exclaimed, "No Sham? Wow!"

Billy Mays will be missed

It's a shame that Billy Mays has past away. Now we're stuck with the sham wow guy.

how many this month?

How many "notable" people have passed away this month?

I can think of:
michael jackson
farrah fawcett
billy mays
ed mcmahon
david carrodine

really sad

My prayers to his family. So, so awful, people dying so young.

Dr. FitzGerald also died last week

Also Dr. Jerri FitzGerald died last week too: http://www.worldhum.com/travel-blog/item/r.i.p.-dr.-jerri-ni...

So now what?

While I will always feel saddened to learn of the death of a fellow Human Being....How am I going to know what I need to buy from now on???? This is all too confusing. Maybe my elected representatives can help me out from now on...Or maybe the Sham WOW guy will help me.

So Young

So many celebs dying recently, and quite young. I think Billy Mays is the only one that died of heart disease.

That's alot

Adding to the list

Yikes

It's not a safe time to be a celebrity.

He'll be missed

He is probably the only info-mercial person that I actually did not mind listening to.

In the paper they said he had some heart problems that he may not have known about. It's too bad because on the reality show the Australian guy and Mays said they research products before they pitched it and only pitched items and companies that worked. I have bought items not from TV but from the store that they have pitched.

Turn it into "Pitchman"... or add Vince the Sham-wow guy to keep the "men" title... or, they'll air what un-aired shows they have that are finished, and cancel it.

Goodbye Billy Mays

Here's a tribute I picked up from another site.

"They say that Celebrities die in threes...But trust Billy Mays to throw in an extra AT NO ADDITIONAL COST. R.I.P. Billy Mays [1958-2009]"
