Evel Knievel Dead at 69

What's odd is that I just read a piece about him in the New York Times a day or so ago regarding him and Kanye West settling a lawsuit, and thought to myself, "I had no idea he was still alive."

Well, now he isn’t. And between you and me, he's damn lucky he lived to be 69.
Knievel had undergone a liver transplant in 1999 after nearly dying of hepatitis C, likely contracted through a blood transfusion after one of his bone-shattering spills.
