Evil Evel

In the 70's my brother T and I were huge fans of Evel Knievel...we spent a great deal of time with the neighborhood bicycle gang configuring ramps and complex tricks (in our minds anyway) based on his motorcycle jumps...we also spent a proportionate amount of time in the emergency room when those stunts went badly....

Today I read that Evel is suing Kanye West for impersonating him in his recent video "Touch the Sky" because it tarnishes his wholesome daredevil image ...

WTF Evel?
Are you serious?
Really? Since When?

I think he should probably be thanking Kanye for giving him a nod at all...
