Hey, if you thought this was bad, wait ’til Mr. Met gets started on Donald Manes.   The New York Daily News’ Bernie Augustine tracks down the fan responsible :

Lloyd Johnson is taking some stinging criticism for the Steve Irwin sign he had made up for Wednesday night’s Tampa Bay Rays game, but the 29-year-old thinks everybody needs to lighten up.

“I love Steve Irwin but come on, it’s funny,” Johnson told the Daily News. “There’s a funny old saying, ‘don’t take life too serious, you won’t make it out alive.’”

Johnson, an Army veteran, cooked up the idea for the sign during an 11-hour drive to Tennessee for a family reunion

Imagine what Johnson would’ve come up with if had 12 hours to think about it.
