when he needed it.

( chuckles )

truth is, i think,

that bobby was kind of angry

with his father because

he didn't get to stay with him.

that's what i think.

he wanted to be

with his father.

pat williams:
we were up

at my grandma's house,

and he and i

were wrestling around,

and i punched him

in the mouth.

and he lit on the back

of his head.

and i said, "bobby?"

and nothing.

i thought, oh, my god,

i killed him.

and instantly,

he had these wild eyes

'cause he knew

what had happened.

and across the kitchen,

there was a door

that was slightly open,

the pantry door,

and he ran at that door

and slammed it shut

with his head.

and that half-stunned him again.

and he turned around

sitting down,

and he pointed at me,

and he said, "did you see that?

nobody can hurt me.

you can't hurt me.

nobody can hurt me."

jim blankenship:
i think

growing up in butte, montana,

without a father would--

would be hard to handle,

i would think.


butte, montana,

was just a tough-ass

mining town.

when the mines were going full,

the bars were open 24 hours.

there was a lot

of prostitution.

there was about

3,000 whores at that time.

it was just miners

drinkin' and fightin'.

you had to learn

to cope in butte.

sometimes coping meant

with your fists.

you fought.

you stood up like a man.

you fought,

and you were taught that.

and that's part

of the butte credo

is you just don't back down.

knievel was a fighter

from the get-go,

even during grade school.

he'd get a little obnoxious

at times.

you know,

you'd have to settle him down.


you couldn't dare him.

if you'd dare him,

he'd do it.

i remember when bob

got his first motorcycle.

i don't know

why he had two tires.

he always rode around
