Default ESPN 30 for 30, You Don't Know Bo

It's great, watch it if you get the chance. It brought me right back to my childhood.

Good stuff.

I was a little young to fully appreciate him in his prime, but in bengals circles, they call the current playoff winless drought the "curse of bo Jackson." Zero playoff wins since cincinnati took him out in the 1991 playoffs.

Very good indeed. He's an incredibly humble man. Blows my mind how he is so disinterested now in the game, admitting that he gets bored watching it with his wife.

I don't think he's bored of it, I think it's too painful to watch.

I watched it too. Good documentary, i never knew who he was until I read a post on here(ISH) about him being a great athlete.

Ha, yeah I saw that...kinda funny, that show is great

I wish they would do a 30 for 30 on Deion but probably not due to the fact he didn't have an injury or die.

Yeah, this was a good documentary. I could not stop watching it and I had to go to bed. I remember the Bo Knows commercials. I remember when he played, but as a kid I really didn't appreciate it as it was happening.

I was born in the 80s, so I got to watch Bo Jackson in his prime as a young kid. I also got the pleasure of watching Barry Sanders.

Bo Jackson is the greatest athlete I've ever seen, in any sport. The guy was just a freak. Stronger than everyone, and faster than everyone. Just a beast.

Barry Sanders was the best running back I've ever seen. The guy was pretty much a 1 man football team. Had no quarterback, no defense, and no line or anything. The Lions in the 90s were Barry Sanders and a bunch of CFL talent.

I don't know, this is a guy that gave up millions of more money to start his career with baseball, playing in AA, riding busses everywhere on a shitty per diem. He also described playing football as just a "hobby" like hunting or fishing. It wouldn't surprise me if he genuinely had little interest in watching football.

I was 6 or 7 years old when Jackson was in his prime so my fanaticism with him was less about how I enjoyed watching him on the field (because I didn't watch him) and more about the folklore and superhero status he carried. He had a cool name, awesome commercials (Bo Knows), he was a cartoon character, had his own set of video games, played two sports, broke bats over his knee and supposedly threw a ball to homeplate on the fly from the warning track (I'd never seen the footage until the 30 for 30, it was just hearsay to me back then).

Bo was just hot in the streets. I'm glad the doc mentioned his Tecmo Bowl reign too. The rule of not being allowed to use the Raiders in a two player game was very real (though I had Tecmo Super Bowl, not the original). This video is pretty much the embodiment of his video game terror: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PBvOxicz-0

Finally, I used to rock this game for the longest time, on bus rides, on trips to my grandparents house, just chilling in my room, wherever:



One of my most prized baseball cards as a youth (even though it was only worth like, .50 cents):

Caught a half an hour of it with my roommate. It was really well done. I too am a little young to appreciate him, so it was cool learning more about him.
