    Cool Anyone see the Bo Jackson Documentary on ESPN last night?

    Buffalo Bills

    Awesome. Just remember him snapping bats over his head like toothpicks, the Nike commercials, forgot about his comeback with his artificial hip. I remember the football speed and power. Still holds the fastest time at the combine- 4.12 @ 220 lbs. !!

    I was a huge fan of Bo when I was a kid. Had all his baseball, football cards. Had his Nike sneakers, read his book. Kinda forgot about him till I watched that documentary.

    Absolutely an incredible athlete. We just had a glimpse at his greatness, sad how it ended so quickly for him, and the fans.. To call him the greatest 2 sport athlete doesn't really do him justice. Simply based on his physical abilities, he could possibly be the greatest 'athlete' ever.. period.

    That's what they said in the Documentary. Hard to believe, guess we could look it up. They did say still holds the fastest combine time.
    Something really cool- was and is an avid Bow and target marksman. During his rehab of his hip, he was shooting bulls eyes with his feet!

    There have been a lot of reports of people running sub 4.2 40's but since the combine started electronically timing the 40, no one has even come close. Jeff Demps is an olympian and only ran 4.26.

    I have a really hard time believing he ran a true 4.12

    Hand timed I'm sure. Lots of room for measurement error there. But make no mistake - Bo had world class speed. He's maybe the greatest athlete I've ever seen.

    That was a good show I saw it a month or two ago when it first aired. Learned alot of stuff about him I didn't know. Bo was amazing. I had alot of his cards and I kept the Beckett magazine he was on the cover of for along time. In middle school I rocked the Nike Bo Jackson's too. The black, white and silver ones.

    Before this gets moved... I saw it a few weeks back (if it was the 30 for 30). Read the Bo knows Bo book when I was 10, and loved the swearing.
    He was definitely one of my favorite athletes growing up, but it was all so short lived. The Saturday morning cartoon with him, Jordan and Gretzky was a can't miss on my schedule .

    It's sad because in this day and age, everyone would be screaming he's on performance inhancement drugs. He was a little before my time. I envy the folks who got to see Jordan, Bo Jackson and Gretzky play.. I got Lebron James who's obviously on steroids or was, and people who are overpaid.

    i saw it the first time it aired, it was easily the best 30 for 30 of all of them.

    i had forgotten how much i loved watching him play until that show.
