Not Soccer-Related, but Huge: Evel Knievel Dead

Evel Knievel died today.  Why do I feel like my childhood just ended?

  1. I’ve only broken three bones in my life and two were due to jumping things on my dirt bike after watching Evel Knievel.

    Seen the new site yet?

  2. I’ve seen the new digs and they look dandy. Congrats on the transition. Getting back to Evel, though, ah, the jumping, the memories…the fact that I had a girl’s bike for much of my childhood (fucking hand-me-downs). Other activities led to broken bones, but I can say that Evel’s inspiration also had me jumping things, but the only thing I broke was the banana seat on my bike.
