This might get messy:

TAMPA — A U.S. Airways jet safely landed at Tampa International Airport this afternoon despite the fact that one of its front tires blew out.

Paramedics went to the west runway just before 3 p.m. after getting reports that a 737 aircraft was having problems landing.

No one was injured, including the one celebrity on board: infomercial king Billy Mays, of Odessa, said Tampa Airport Authority spokeswoman Brenda Geoghagan.

I remember reading somewhere that Mays was so good at selling things that he could sell ice cubes to the Eskimo's! Being from Alaska I found this hysterical!

That's so sad. Another shocking, unexpected death. I loved his commercials, especially his energy.

Billy :sobbing: He could sell pieces of shit like nobody's buisness. :o

He probably died to be the third celebrity in the Farrah, MJ, group since really nobody even remembered Ed McMahon died. :awww:

It's sad. If he actually had an Impact Gel on his head, he probably would have survived that hit.

This man was such a good pitchman that even I brought Oxyclean and I never buy as seen on TV things.
I hope they continue his show on the Discovery Channel and I hope to continue to see his infomercials.
Noone could do it like him.
RIP

The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner just announced the results of Billy Mays' autopsy -- and said there was no connection between Billy's death and Saturday's rough aircraft landing.

Billy had admitted to suffering a blow to the head when the front tires of US Airways Flight 1421 blew upon landing -- but the doc said he found "no signs of internal or external head trauma."

Dr. Chrostowski said Billy most likely died from complications due to heart disease. He said the autopsy showed "hypertensive and arteriosclerotic disease of the heart" -- which is known to cause sudden death.

The doc said Billy -- who was scheduled to have his third hip replacement surgery today -- had prescriptions for tramadol and hydrocodone, but said Mays had no history of drug abuse and "the counts of remaining medication are correct."

The doc will announce the official cause of death once all test results are in.

I must confess I never understood why this guy was such a big success. I found him grating. Of course, I am sorry to hear of his death. RIP.
