Proving yet again, it`s all fun and games until someone gets hurt...then it`s just funny:

"After his crash and recovery, Knievel was more famous than ever. ABC-TV bought the rights to the film of the jump, paying far more than they originally would have, had they televised the original jump live."

Evel Knievel was the poo when I was a kid. I remember several friends sported casts on their arms after jumping rickety homemade ramps on their bikes. Crash & burn.

Didn`t his son, Robbie, do this same jump successfully many years later?

Wikipedia says this little stunt earned Knieval "a crushed pelvis and femur, fractures to his hip, wrist and both ankles and a concussion that kept him in a coma for 29 days".

I`d say that has to smart a little.
