Another Lost Hero

This is a rough season for heroes. First Bud Ekins died on Oct 6th, now my personal favorite childhood hero finally wadded it up for good.

The finest showman in my lifetime, insane egomaniac, terrible motorcycle jumper, the world's worst wardrobe picker and demonic womanizer, Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel died today.

Like he said once before a jump, "You can only burn the nitro so long, before "Boom!" you're gonna blow up!"

Well, no shit Evel, thanks for sharing.

Here's to you and living your life the way you want.

Here's a great video:

And a link to Wikipedia's account of his history.
