My newest Irish hero in Dublin stole 450 kegs (!!!!) from the Guinness Brewery! What did he do with all of that beer? I hope he had one hell of a weekend kegger, that I'm sure he doesn't remember!

And finally, daredevil Evel Knievel died on Friday at the age of 69 in Clearwater, Florida.

After all these years, who would have thought that not breathing would be enough to silence Evel. Not me. Rest in Peace, Good Sir.
