When I was a kid...I use to hear that Evil Knievel was doing a stunt. It would be broadcasted on the Wide World of Sports on Channel 7...I would be glued to the TV to see what and where he was doing a jump! I was so excited to see if he would make it!!
Evil Knieval Injury List: Evel Knievel's fame as a motorcycle daredevil has come at a terrible price: multiple fractures of many of his bones. 14 open-reduction surgeries (to repair or replace bones, some with steel screws, pins or rods) and, over his career, 36 months in the hospital. While Evel Knievel never actually broke "every bone in his body," he holds the Gunniess World Record for the most broken bones: 35!
