Evel Knievel dies at 69
« on: November 30, 2007, 09:07:13 PM »
One of my favorites. A daredevil who captured america's attention with death defying motorcycle stunts. I haven't thought about him for awhile but now it comes flooding back.

Amazing he lived as long as he did. He broke pretty much every bone in his body at one time or another.

Exactly!   ;-()   I was shocked that he was 69..........or is there another one that I am confusing him with?  Maybe his son!??   :confused1:

I thought he died years/decades ago.

He should of died a lot of times.

His son "Robbie" does stunts also. I didn't know about him till I looked it up now.

Now I am confused.  Was it Lardass or Chunk that told the super emotional story of puking at camp and causing all the other kids to puke?  Or, was that in both movies?
