Just read this on Jalopnik.
Alas, Evel Knievel is gone. He definitely lit up the imagination of a pre-teen. Jumping buses, jumping sharks, jumping ridiculous distances, obstacles and natural phenomena.
Who amongst us would seek fame and accept such a personal, physical price. Very few, I expect.
Hope that last big jump landed.
