Bo Jackson Highlights New ESPN 30 for 30 Schedule
It's time for the glorious return of the 30 for 30 series, and volume two will be highlighted with a documentary on the great Bo Jackson.
ESPN released a list of the season of fine films with heavy emphasis on the great stories you crave or those you never knew were so interesting.
Reserve your couch time appropriately.
It will all get started on Oct. 2, at 8 p.m. on ESPN/ESPNHD with a documentary entitled "Broke," which concentrates on the unfortunate side of making millions in sport.
Bernie Kosar, Andre Rison and Cliff Floyd will feature as athletes who tell their tales of making bad financial decisions and the price they paid.
Here is the slate to hit us all in the fall and will no doubt demand our full attention.
- Tuesday, Oct. 2, 8 p.m. – Broke (Billy Corben)
- Tuesday, Oct. 9, 8 p.m. – 9.79* (Daniel Gordon)
- Tuesday, Oct. 16, 8 pm. – There’s No Place Like Home (Maura Mandt and Josh Swade)
- Tuesday, Oct. 23, 8 p.m. – Benji (Coodie and Chike)
- Tuesday, Oct. 30, 8 p.m. – Ghosts of Ole Miss (Fritz Mitchell)
- Saturday, Dec. 8, 9 p.m. – You Don’t Know Bo (Michael Bonfiglio)
The one film that catches the eye has to be the finale airing in December, called "You Don't know Bo," a documentary concentrating on the life and career of arguably the best all-around athlete of all time—Bo Jackson.
From their description, it seems we will get added insight into the mystique built around the two-sport phenomena.
His marketing and athletic ability made him a personality we still remember fondly, and someone we can't help but feel was taken from sports far before he should have.
Of course, that's just an initial take. If you look back at the initial set of films, there were so many that crept in as personal favorites, like "The Best that Never Was," a film on Marcus Dupree.
I guarantee this next round will be no different.
ESPN promises to have each episode available on iTunes that day after airing and will prepare a collector's set like the initial version.
