The life and times of a real, down to earth, nice guy. A relocated New Englander formerly living somewhere north of Boston, but now soaking up the bright sun of southwestern central Florida (aka The Gulf Coast). Welcome to my blog world.

Billy Mays (1958-2009)

When will the madness stop?

Television pitch man extraordinaire Billy Mays, 50, died this morning in his Florida home. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Mays hawked a variety of products over the years on television, especially the "Oxi-Clean" line of products. Though his booming voice could be grating (seemed like he pitched everything) there is no question that the guy could sell stuff and, judging by the volume of items he pitched, was good enough at it that it made him a millionaire.

It will be interesting to see what the official cause of death will be. The guy was a month or so older than Michael Jackson, who died last Thursday. Whassup with all these 50 year old people dying?
