R.I.P. Evel Knievel

 ”There are a lot of myths about my injuries. They say I have broken every bone in my body. Not true. But I have broken 35 bones. I had surgery 14 times to pin and plate. I shattered my pelvis. I forget all of the things that have broke.”
–Evel Knievel, Hero, 1938-2007

American hero Evel Knievel lived his life much the same way he died: in a hospital bed. The man who taught every kid that the minor pain of a compound fracture is worth the glory, adulation and smokin’ hot chicks the world gives those who wear capes while risking their lives died today of ailments you’re too much of a pussy to even read about. He was a one-man X-games before Tony Hawk had the training wheels off his skateboard. We love you, Evel. If there is a God, we’re pretty sure you’re launching a motorcycle over his house right now.

    Evel Knievel. 99% balls, 1% human…100% All-American bad ass. He taught me how to love a woman and how to scold a child.
