Billy Mays pallbearers honor the man in blue

Although Michael Jackson's upcoming funeral will surely be a feeding frenzy for photographers, it'll be hard to beat this photo op from today's burial ceremony for TV pitchman Billy Mays. With their khakis and rolled-up long-sleeve blue shirts, the pallbearers gave a fitting homage to the uniform that was almost as memorable as Mays' well-manicured beard. Mays died at his home June 28 from apparent natural causes. According to the Associated Press, which distributed the photo, Mays' eulogy covered everything from childhood memories to his devout Christian faith to his personal mantras like, "Life's a pitch, and then you buy."
