i would watch the evil knievil specials because in my own secret way i admired the fact that he would risk. i would pretend to be him when i would make my own risky jumps on my bike. the only difference was that i knew i could land my jumps, eveil knievil didn’t.
i salute that man who brought butterflies to my stomach on many occasions and showed me that impossible is possible, as long as I am ready to take the risk. evil knievel dies at 69.
