I've bought "Guru of Go" (Hank Gathers), "The Band that Wouldn't Die" (Baltimore Colts), and Small Potatoes: Who Killed the USFL? off of iTunes so far. I found June 17th, 1994 on YouTube after it came out, but I still plan on buying it once it's available.

They picked the perfect song for the end of June 17th. Probably my new favorite sports documentary.

Rudy Giuliani and Ken Griffey, Jr. are the best parts.

Bump for today's 30 for 30 on Marcus Dupree. One of my favorites. Went into a lot of issues that college athletes are facing today...

Want to also recommend the Tim Richmond episode. As someone who stopped watching NASCAR around 1997, it brought back a lot of memories. RIP.

Marcus Dupree film was great

Couple of points from Wikipedia that it seems like should have been mentioned:

Quote :
"After he was released by the Rams, he performed as a professional wrestler for the USWA in 1995, ran a sports bar and worked as a casino greeter.

He also worked as a scout for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League, general manager of the Bossier–Shreveport Battle Wings of arenafootball2, a spinoff of Arena Football League,[12] and a scout for the National Football League's Washington Redskins.[6]

His son, Marquez Dupree played as running back for Philadelphia High School and went on to sign with Alabama, before he injured his knee and left the team."

I checked out that book "the courting of marcus dupree" after seeing that one. I love this series, downloaded the first seven episodes so far. Even the ones on sports I don't like have been great.

Pony Excess looks like a really good one...possibly a prelude to:

"Trouble in Blue Heaven"

"What if I told you that a traditional basketball school got it in its mind to play football, and then broke all the rules to get to the top?"

Watching Marcus Dupree right now.

Not as good as June 17th, 1994, but it's one of the top 5 best ones.

BS does a podcast along with most of the films in the series and the last one came out yesterday. Apparently they're turning this into an ongoing feature, especially since a lot of the films commissioned for this didn't get finished in time (the Bartman one, most notably).

Yeah, I've got the DVR set to record all airings

But 9/10 times I end up with some bullshit like whatever NBA show I got instead of the SMU one

I guess live events screw with ESPN's lineup more than I realized

Ones I liked the most (In no order):

- Two Escobars (Could care less about soccer, but a very interesting story I was unaware of. Remember andres Escobar getting murdered, didn't know the story or connection with Pablo)
- The 'U' (The best of them all)
- The Band that Wouldn't Stop Playing
- June 17th, 1994 (The way they did it was awesome...no narration, only clips)
- Pony Excess (Just never knew what all went on, but always heard about 'the death penalty')

Ones I thought were terrible or that I was dissapointed with

- The Tupac/Mike Tyson One ('One Night in Vegas', I think?)
- The Iverson one
- Run Ricky Run


I watched about 20-22 of them. The rest of them i could care less about and they just didn't interest me.

The only one I wanted to see but missed was "The Greatest that Never Was" - The Marcus Dupree one. Haven't been able to catch a re-run of it

I think I've caught all of these now except for "June 17th, 1994." ESPN is showing it sometime this New Years though so I'll record it then. The majority of these were fun, interesting, and entertaining to watch; some of the less spectacular episodes contained sports facts that I had never known, footage I'd never seen, and thoughts and perspectives I'd never heard.

My two favorites are "The Greatest that Never Was" and "The Guru of Go."

Once Brothers was incredible. That one tugged at my heart... Divac was clearly crushed by everything and the way it happened.

Four Days in October was the worst

Not sure how that even made the cut

The Tupac/Tyson one was pretty weak. The connections were shaky at best.

So Mike Tyson came out to "Amibitionz as a Ridah" and Suge Knight and Tupac hung out with him after fights. Other than that, what was the big deal?

The Tyson one was really bad. The story sucked, and wasn't that the one where they were doing the "Beat Poetry" narration style? That one was just all around terrible.

I almost cried watching Once Brothers- Jordan rides the bus was pretty good too, some guy at work told me he retired to play baseball because he bet on basketball, now I can educate him. Gonna watch June 17, 1994 now.
