Evel Knievel dies today at the age of 69. His daredevil career began in 1965 when he formed a troupe called Evel Knievel’s Motorcycle Daredevils, a touring show in which he performed stunts such as riding through fire walls, jumping over live rattlesnakes and mountain lions and being towed at 200 mph behind dragster race cars. I can even remember watching him on the Wide World of Sports wanting my own jumpsuit and motorcycle to do crazy shit on, and apparently i wasn’t the only cat either:

I’m glad they squashed their beef and made up though:
