50 years ago, Michaels asked Santa for one thing, and one thing only. The coolest toy on the market that every boy who grew up in the 70s wanted - an Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle.

The dreams of jumping the little daredevil over the garage, over the neighbor's cat, over anything he could dream of, were cut short when on Christmas morning he opened a typewriter.

50 years later, 50 years of pain, 50 years of disappointment, and 50 years of not living his dreams were remedied this Christmas when he finally received what he'd always wished for - the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle.


So the question then came - what to jump first? We've all heard stories of people breaking these things on the first rip with them, so we might as well make it epic.

Tune in to the Dwyer & Michaels Morning Show this Friday as Evel Knievel (the toy) takes on the most infamous jump - the pool at Caesars.

Well, not exactly Caesars, but a pool of Caesars salad.

It's happening live on the air, and we'll have video for you to see just how perfect (or horribly) the jump goes.
