I know Jan, it's crazy isn't it

Here is more:


Here's what we know -- Billy Mays was aboard US Airways Flight 1241 flying from Philadelphia, which landed roughly when the front tire blew out as it touched down. After the flight, Billy told FOX 13 in Tampa that something struck him in the head -- here's Billy's actual quote:

"All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head."

We called the FAA for comment, and a spokesperson told us, "The passenger needs to wear a seat belt during landing and he didn't."

Kaboom!, and Billy Mays is gone!

Yeah this is crazy it's like there is a hit man killing famous people or something.

Billy was a good guy I loved his Kaboom commercials he made me laugh because he got so into making his commercials. I guess pitchmen wont be back nobody can replace Billy he was one of a kind.

It could be from getting hit on the head that he got a concussion or something, guess well have to wait and see.

I didn't know much about him but I started watching 'Pitchmen' and had started liking the guy. Sad really

OMG! This is not turning out to be such a good week. He was always just so happy. RIP

I wonder if the hit on the head had anything to do with his death. He was so young, only 50. I hated the black hair dye and the screaming, but he was entertaining too. God speed Billy. Condolences to your family.

If this theory is true as I have heard all my life we can expect another celebrity to drop in the next day or two. I hope this is just an urban legend.

I thought the three were Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcet, Michael Jackson? So Billy Mays would be the start of a new three?

I heard that too, not to mention Patrick Swayze

Wasn't there an episode of CSI Miami where there was this group that had a weird "office pool" type of thing, where they wagered on which celebrity would die next?
post #22 of 29
I heard about this, this morning. . It is so odd how many celebs have died in the last few weeks! It is awful! Im almost scared to turn on the news

Mays annoyed the heck out of me, but ya know what? I teared up more over his death than MJ's... The dude had a Joie de Vive that nothing could take away...

I read today that he had an enlarged heart, and that's most likely what killed him. Sad...

50 seems to be a dangerous age for males. His poor wife. I couldn't listen to the 911 call but I heard it was very sad.

If so, Karl Malden is the 2nd of that series. At least he made it to the age of 97.

I actually liked that guy.He had instant voice and face recognition and was one of the better tv pitchmen. I respect that he carved out a niche for himself and was "bearded up"! Billy was not a metro-sexual! Take that wimpy tweaker Sham-wow guy!

Now there was a classy lady - our news didn't even mention her death - guess there were too many others to report on.
Thanks for the link.
