    It's about time!

    ...the daredevil claims that Kanye infringed on his trademark name and likeness in West's video for "Touch the Sky." In the video, West portrays a character named "Evel Kanyevel" who attempts to jump a large canyon, not unlike Knievel's famous 1974 jump of Snake River Canyon in Idaho, which was not successful.

    I bought my nephew an Evel Knievel stunt cycle for Christmas. I'll probably enjoy playing with it more than he will.

    I'm reminded of Evel's interview with Jim Rome on radio several years ago. When Rome asked him about his chances of surviving a crash after a stunt, Evel paused for five seconds and replied "Do you know who the hell I am?"

    Either he was insinuating that he knew what he was getting into, but Rome didn't have anything to say for that line.

    Well, Kayne, you whiny bitch, do you know who the hell Evel Knievel is??

    I can't think of any two phonies more deserving of pissing away millions in legal fees for this law suit.

    At least Evel knows he's phony. Kayne thinks he's fo' real.
