Any OGs who were lucky enough to catch Bo Jackson in his prime got their chance to really rub it a few months ago, when ESPN aired the fantastic 30 for 30 "You Don't Know Bo." The documentary was a revelation. Jackson was an absolute freak. Did you know that he bowhunted instead of lifting weights? That he pulled a Forrest Gump and ran into a tunnel after trucking Brian Bosworth? That he left a dent in the chest of an all-Pro safety? We'll never see anyone like him again. (Plus, it's hard to imagine any MLB or NFL owners nowadays allowing an athlete to risk injury while playing another sport.)
This amazing scounting report, from his time as an Auburn baseball player, has been makin' the rounds on the Internet over the past couple of days. The guy who wrote it did not mince words: "A complete type player with amazing tools; can simply do it all and didn't even play baseball last year. A gifted athlete; the best pure athlete in America today."
Crazy shit. AND, the dude hadn't even seen what he could do in Tecmo Bowl yet.
