        I just watched that jump the other night. He did it from space(almost) at 102,800 feet. It was some guiness book of records show, but that guy was pretty insane. He went that high in a helium balloon with a basket.
        He da Man! haha.

        Keep reading the Bio. After his “jumping” the man was a fighter pilot in Vietnam and got shot down, spending a year as a guest of the VC.

        This guy is one serious dude!

        BALLS OF STEEL does not even begin to describe him and really any of those first space guys. Those pioneer type explorers dating back to the over the water guys were insane.

        I believe it is very important to keep athletics in perspective. I cringe when I hear football coaches screeming, “We’re going to war this week!” Our athletes need to hear us stress concentration, physical fitness, and doing our best, but we (especially me) have no idea what an actual war situation is like. We had a former track & field athlete on our team die in combat in Iraq! Our athletes now hear about how their competitions are important, but not as important as the men and women who sacrifice time and their lives so that we can go to a sporting event. Thank you again for sharing this article of this brave man! God bless all men and women who put themselves out there for the sake of exploration and freedom.

        Great post and very true. It annoys me to when I hear that kind of thing spoken by and to individuals who have no idea.
