Evel Knievel (1938-2007)

On of my childhood heroes passed away today — Robert Craig Knievel. He was 69.

Daredevil Evel Knievel claimed to be a lot of things but he’ll always be the daredevil from the 70s that jumped buses and attempted to jump the Grand Canyon. He was one of the crazy ones and he’ll be missed.

The NY Times has a piece about him here.
