    I saw this on ESPN just now. The motorcycle daredevil legend Evel Knievel has died. He had suffered nearly 40 broken bones before retiring in 1980 according to ESPN:

    He definitely was insane at what he did. You don't get that big without taking years off your life and I'm sure he doesn't regret the 69 years he got.

    Yeah, I saw that on sportscenter. They did I nice job of showing his career and explaining him and everything. It's sad he had to die but I'm surprised he didn't die long ago after seeing some of his jumps.
