This one and the story about Hank Gathers in Guru of Go (The doc's actually about his coach but Hank was a big part) were some of the saddest things I'd ever seen. I mean real life stories too man... just sad.
ESPN 30 for 30 is one of the best shows on TV. Last night's episode may have been the best one yet. It was amazing. That kid was a BEAST.
Truly one of the top RB talents ever. Those highlights from him in high school were jaw-dropping. Best highlights I've ever seen for a RB. I realize it was a beast amongst men, but he'd just run everybody over. He even ran over a ref in one of the games.
He seems to be living though. And content with everything he did, considering how tough he had it.
Apparently that dude ran the 100m at like 9.8. To put that in perspective Usain Bolt is the current world record holder at 9.58 I'm not sure about AP's numbers but if he's doing that than I stand corrected.
Dupree was bigger and faster. Saw both play, from field level, in college. No question Marcus was an even greater talent.
That one was the saddest 30 for 30 doc. Drafted and then overdosing a day later. What a shame.
The Bias story is incredibly sad, but I honestly thought that was the worst written/produced 30 for 30 episode I've seen. So many angles to the story and they seemed to take the most cloying and obvious.
