It may have once been stated that Mat Hoffman is a man among men, but that's not entirely true. It's more like men are among Mat, because he really is one of a kind. He also believes anything is possible—especially the impossible—which is rad, but also kind of scary, because he has the power to instill this same confidence in another. Hanging around Manny Puig can have this same effect, especially when anywhere near the vicinity of an otherwise understood dangerous animal. Anyway, back to Mat, who appears coolly confident next to less so Johnny Knoxville in this photo. I don't know this for a fact, but I'll go off a launch and say that he's probably coaching Knoxville through the basic physics of a backflip. Cut to a few hours later and... the rest is catheter history. Happy Birthday, Mat!
