    Or injuries. I posted a clip here once, an out-take from a TV commercial that showed him crashing head first into a bathtub he was cleaning. Being a TV pitch-man is evidently a risky profession.

    Still, as obnoxious as I found his ads, dying at 50 is tragic, and my sympathies go out to his family. icon_sad.gif

    And what's the fitness lesson?? Billy had a belly. A big belly. No doubt he had blocked arteries, also. Too bad he wasn't a real jock.
