Nik Wallenda To Attempt To Tightrope Across Canyon Tonight 7PM CST On Discovery

Wallenda walked across Niagara Falls last year and tonight will attempt to walk across the Little Colorado Gorge in Arizona live on the Discovery channel at 7pm CST.

Countdown to the walk comes on at 5pm CST.

1500 ft high, taller than the Empire State Bldg. this time untethered, no safety net.

He wanted to walk across The Grand Canyon but he was not allowed to just like they refused Evel Knievel in the 70's.

Watch this video, guy is truly nuts or has balls of steel or both.

What can I say...the sadist in me thinks it would've been hilariously ironic for a guy who literally said the word "Jesus" 50 times (or more) falling. The irony and resulting discussion would have been fascinating.

Though honestly, I doubt he would have really fallen. If slackliners can catch themselves and pull themselves right back up when they fall, I'd imagine this guy could've too.

I would've cracked the **** up if he'd fallen. I'm a sick **** as well. I was talking about the fruit ninja thing more than anything else. Someone else, but no one I remember, or care enough to look up.

Nothing wrong with it at all, I was just amused someone picked up the mantle. It's not like you need anyone to fight your battles for you, why do you think I quit?

I thought it would be funny if a bird flew down and sat on his cable wire & just sit there.

Let him walk at Kauffman or Arrowhead?

So one of his dreams is to walk across a MLB or a NFL stadium. Well in KC, he can do both at the same time. And the parking lot in between.

Wallenda hopes to try NYC high-wire walk despite NYPD resistance
Scott StumpTODAY

After conquering the Grand Canyon, daredevil Nik Wallenda has already encountered some early resistance to his next dream of walking on a wire between the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building in Manhattan.

On Monday, New York Police Department commissioner Raymond Kelly shot some holes in that idea, telling reporters, “I don’t think it’d be wise in this city. We have thousands of New Yorkers who certainly can be put at risk.”

Nik Wallenda's jeans grab spotlight in high-wire walk

Wallenda has dealt with obstacles like this before and prevailed. He lobbied the governments of the United States and Canada for two years before he was able get laws changed to allow for his high-wire walk across Niagara Falls in February of 2012. Despite Kelly’s comments, Wallenda hopes to work with the city government to make his new dream a reality.

“I would never do anything to put people in danger and wouldn’t do a walk without proper permission and permits, but it’s a dream of mine I hope to make happen,’’ he said in a statement to TODAY.com on Tuesday.

Wallenda’s walk across a section of the Grand Canyon located in the Navajo Nation drew 13 million viewers to the live coverage on Discovery Channel Sunday night. Following his latest feat, the seventh-generation member of the famous “Flying Wallendas” family told reporters that conquering New York was his next goal. While his Grand Canyon walk was 1,400 feet across and took 22 minutes, there is approximately 4,000 aerial feet separating the two iconic skyscrapers in New York.

Nik Wallenda was 'working for every single foot' in Grand Canyon walk

Wallenda wants to meet with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg to present his concept for the walk, he told Sports Illustrated’s Maggie Gray in a live interview on Tuesday afternoon.

“It’s really about doing something positive, inspiring people, and bringing positive attention to that particular area,’’ he told Gray.

He did it! Daredevil Nik Wallenda wire walks across the Grand Canyon

Wallenda added that he has been in talks with an undisclosed team to potentially walk across a baseball stadium on a wire and considers walking across a Major League Baseball or NFL stadium another dream.

Hey its not a bad idea. Since neither team can seem to make any positive national publicity on its own. Maybe a guy walking on a wire between the stadiums will help KC with some publicity.
