Evel Knievel died today.
I got my first motorcycle when I was five years old, and I loved watching Evel do his tricks. He inspired two of my brothers as they pursued motorcross racing, and he even inspired a Kanye video.
I had a big crush on him when I was a kid, despite the fact that he was about a trillion years older than me. He was adventurous and brazen, yet humble and respectful in every interview I ever saw.
