2007evelchopper.jpgEvel Knievel, stunt motorcyclist, passed away last week. I remember the following:

-watching him on ABC’s Wide World of Sports before there were hundreds of channels
-watching him on TV before every third channel had videos of cars crashing and bursting into flames
-playing with my Evil Knievel action figures
-watching his unsuccessful attempt to jump a rocket-powered motorcycle across the Snake River

Mr. Lyson is currently working the North Dakota dig while working on his graduate degree in paleontology.
