In Memory of Evel Knievel

You know, I'm still pissed that my Evel Knievel didn't come with the damned Swagger Stick shown in the third commercial and pictured in loving detail in the ads in my comic books. Also, my house didn't have any 100' straightaways in it, so my brother and I had to be content with sending the bikes zipping across the kitchen to snash into the oven. And that was IF you could keep the stupid motorcycle from falling over - notice that the bike is never seen upright in a single shot for more than a few seconds. In the end we realized that it worked much better if you left off the stupid Gumby-armed doll, which was much smaller than our G.I. Joes and even our Action Jacksons and therefore looked puny and weak.

You know, I didn't even officially know he was dead until this morning...your site is now my major source for news and information!
