I watched the show on Bo Jackson last night with my son. He got so excited and wanted Bo back on the team, he's not that old Daddy, he told me. I have always been a huge Bo fan. Last night's show brought back the joyous memories of one of the most dynamic and inspiring athletes of all time. His attitude, love of the game(s) were an influence on many. Man, when he ran sideways along that wall in that BBall game, broke bats over his knee or head, gunned a guy down from the warning track, bowled over nearly anyone he decided to including one of my favorite college athletes, Bosworth (hated him in the pros/loved him at Oklahoma) out-ran almost everyone(especially the Seattle runs), jumped over the pile, wow!
When they showed the game when he got hurt :cry: I remembered seeing it live and how I knew that it was a bad injury from the get. It rebroke my heart, my son even said "You Ok, Dad?"
To think of what that man, #34, could have done if he would have just went out of bounds a second before that tackle, is nearly unfathomable. I think he really could have been one of the very best to ever to play the game. I feel the same about Marcus and wish that his career would have been different with us. Marcus and Bo were the best and they were and ARE
