Sure it's a different world. But can I be the ONLY one who used to think Evel crashed sometimes because of all the ass he would get for the months and years after. That is until he planned his return for the crazy??
Sure we're YEARS past the technology of the years Evel jumped but....as I said above. Sometimes Evel's greatest wins seemed like fails to me. These were also done back to back and he CRUSHED THEM.
I Know he's no Evel and so on. It's TV people and it's still very dangerous.
Back on November 17, 1967, Knievel attempted to jump the fountains but failed and was hospitalized after crashing. I know, 1967 but still who would do that sh!t today knowing they'd be OK. NOT ME and probably not you. Unless your balls are allegedly are bigger than your brain :)
Here is a history lesson on Evel and the legendary 1967 jump.
