Snake River Canyon Was Nothing

As a kid Evel Knievel was my hero a daredevil that gave his name to one of the best toys ever created The Stunt Cycle. The greatest stunt Evel ever did was the jump off a folded Monopoly board raised by Beano Annuals down a flight of stairs to land safely in our hall way back in the mid 70's. It was his greatest unrecorded stunt. I was saddened to hear of his passing and it sent me on a hunt to track down this The Original Stuntmaster. I guess we won't see his like again.
