My Apology To Stuntman Eddie Braun, Evel Knievel and All Big Dreamers.

Daredevil Evel Knievel was a huge childhood hero of mine, so it was amazing and super cool that stuntman Eddie Braun successfully replicated and completed Evel’s jump attempt over the Snake River Canyon in September 2016. Bravo Eddie!

But in an uncharacteristic tweet, I disrespected Eddie’s passion and success, and publicly want to set the record straight. It’s cool as fuck and I was wrong to comment anything but respect, positivity and kudos. Looking inward, when I take a shot at someone else’s accomplishments or pursuits, it really must be an expression of frustration with something I have yet to achieve. Lesson learned. Respect the big dreams of others. I am truly sorry Eddie. Please join me on the show.

Here is Eddie’s jump and get this, I just discovered my Ford Super Duty Truck spot is one of the pre-roll spots that before it plays. Kismet?

    Nobody gives a shit about your Dumb ass Ford commercial. I’m sure it took a lot of thought and courage to do it….oh I’m sorry too!

      Hey SDB, thank you listening to my podcast and taking the time to comment! My Ford commercial actually did take a lot of thought, but not any “courage” to make. After all, it’s a commercial, silly. No need to apologize. Best, Jordan
