The greatest stuntman ever, Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel, died yesterday at age 69. Some of you may be too young to remember him, but he was a hero to me when I was a kid and he has been recognized as being a pioneer of today's extreme sports. I liked the reference made to him in Armageddon: Here is a fanmade collection of his most famous stunts, ending with his famous (and failed) stunt, the jump over the Snake River Canyon in a rocket-powered motorcycle. For those of you who are not too familair with him, here is a good article on his life and stunts. That guy was years ahead of his time.
