    It Was One of Those Deaths....

    where I know I will remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news. I remember when he first came on T.V, he was hilarious. When he made it big overseas I was so glad we had a "true blue" doing us proud. He did some really special things over here and...

    He Was The Only Celeb I'D Ever Actually Want To Meet

    Sucks that he died before I ever had a chance to meet him. I grew up watching him. He's probably one of the main reasons why I love animals so much. In grade school, when we had to write about our "hero" he was always my one and only choice.

    Crikey! He's Gone!

    Steve was the best! He made nature exciting and inspiring. I loved watching the Crocodile Hunter, and even though I really didn't like Croc Files, my little sister loved it! I already had a love for animals when I started watching Steve Irwin on Croc Hunter, but I developed...

    R.I.P. The Crocodile Hunter

    Steve Irwin was my hero, and what he did inspired me to take a path similar to his. Because of him, I am interested in getting a career that has to do with working with animals. I want to travel to Australia to see the magnificent wildlife and I wanna go to the Australia Zoo. His...

    Australian Zoo

    I was fortunate enough to see Steve Irwin at his Australioan Zoo in Queensland back in 2003 when my lady and I went to Australia on a holiday. What a showman ! - and his Zoo has to be seen to be believed.I took a video of his show that day - not very good, but reasonable for a...

    Steve Connection

    There are still very few days that go by that I don't think of my hero...Steve Irwin. It was always on my "bucket list" to go to Australia Zoo and meet him someday. I am a school teacher and have taught my students a lot of his messages and even had them help me to try to win a...

    My 100th Story Is Dedicated to You

    I remember 10th grade, our final involved tossing around ideas of celebrities who are really admirable. It was a short list, but we could all agree that Steve Irwin was at the top of that list. Mr. Irwin took a job where he knew that any day could be his last, and he did it...

    I Have Always Admired Steve

    I grew up watching The Crocodile Hunter... maybe when I was seven years old I started watching his show. I remember when his daughter was born, and how happy he was, and how much he seemed to love her and his wife. I even wrote him a letter when i was in second grade. I was so...

    Funny??? Hmmm...let Me Think About It.

    While I quite liked him, I remembered how my Dad was constantly making fun of his accent. It wasn't very nice, yet he thought it was hilarious.

    Started My Downward Spiral Last Year

    I don't know why, but when I read about Steve's death last year it was like I lost a best friend.  that event was the second that started me in a downward spiral of depression and lethargy that is still lingering.  The first was a few weeks before when my wife caught...

    I Miss Steve Irwin

    It is odd that I never saw him live, never knew him personally, but I loved him and his family.  I love his daughter, Bindi and his wife.  I haven't been exposed to his young son, but am amazed at Bindi's intelligence.  I miss him so much doing those shows on Animal Planet and...
