Evel Knievel dead

Well, I guess if you read the headline you get the gist of the story. Evel Knievel, daredevil motorcycle rider and man, is dead at 69. In retrospect, I can’t imagine how we forgot to include him in the man bracket for last issue.

Here’s the video of Knievel’s infamous Caesar’s Palace jump, and here’s a list of his injuries (35 broken bones – a world record). I was trying to find a great quote of his that I read a long time ago, but to no avail. I remember it was something like, “If I could have done it all over again, I would have screwed a lot more women and maybe hit a few of those jumps faster.”
