Passing of an icon

One of my boyhood heros passed today. Evel Knievel died today. I still remember riding my bike down the street making jumps over stuff and all the kids did it. Great times and great memories. RIP

I was on the edge of my seat when he was trying to decide if he really wanted to get in that rocket for the canyon jump.

I was an Icon for sure.

This tongue in cheek comment doesn't warrant a personal attack dude.

The guy's just trying to lighten the mood. Not saying that Evel's burning in hades. I'm guessing if he was jumping the gates to hades, after the landing he'd spin brimstone in the face of the devil as he made his turn and started the ascent back.



Oh, and I think he had something like 38 broken bones before he retired. I know he had the record at 35, but he passed that just a bit.
Don't worry lantern..Woodman and Uncle Happy are buddies
You should see Bubba treat people he doesn't like

One headline said he jumped the River Styx.

Well whether he was evil or Evel..which set up gates he jumps depends not on his personal morality but rather if his name is found written in the Lamb's Book of Life. It aint what you do but Who you know. Works sorta thataway in life too.
