You're Not Evel ... But You Are Crazy

Looking for something EXTREME to do on July 31st? Well, I can't help you there, but if you are looking to WATCH something EXTREME you are in luck. Check out this EXTREMELY stupid event that I am inevitably going to attend:

Robbie Knievel To Jump Aircraft In NY Harbor
Jul 8, 2004 7:12 am US/Eastern
(1010 WINS) (NEW YORK) Robbie Knievel will hype a movie about his daredevil father, Evel Knievel, by attempting the first jump over an array of military aircraft on the deck of the USS Intrepid in New York Harbor.

His jump will air live July 31 during the second night of the "Evel Knievel" movie premiere weekend on TNT, the cable channel.

The former World War II aircraft carrier, is now the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum. The movie stars George Eads, of "C.S.I.," as Evel Knievel.

Knievel became famous in the 1970s for riding his motorcycle over everything from vehicles to alligators while wearing a red, white and blue jumpsuit. The 65-year-old stuntman retired from jumping more than 20 years ago.
