Another Legend Gone

Evel Knievel dies at 69-

In his honor, I'm going to go get my bicycle out of the shed, stick a playing card in the spokes, make a ramp out of a couple of boxes and a slab of plywood, and jump off it for the rest of the afternoon just like we all did back in the day after seeing George Hamilton play Evel in the movies.

It was always more fun if you could con your little brother into lying down on the other side of the ramp.

Don't forget the jumpsuit.

Have to confess, I had some Evel Knievel toys as a kid. You just had to like a guy that jumped a motorcycle over things, even if at the age of seven you knew it was a stupid thing to do. He will be missed.
