Robert Craig "Evel"
Knievel 1938-2007

Evel Knievel died.

I am tying to come up with a way to express my feelings about his passing. I used to have one of those Evel Knievel motorcycles that slipped into crank. I would spin the crank and the plastic motorcycle would whine and then blast out of the cradle and slam into the wall in the living room. My Evel figure broke every wire in his plastic body.

But I never thought the real Evel Knievel would die.

Godspeed, Evel! You're making your biggest jump yet.
