Re: Bo Jackson just turned 50

The single best athlete I've ever seen play sports. I have to say it was a pleasure watching this guy play, and I was fortunate enough to watch some of those memorable games he played. Especially the MNF against the Seahawks where he ran 91 yds for a TD, and then later ran over Brian Bosworth for a TD.

Re: Bo Jackson just turned 50

The hip injury really was unfortunate. He had freakish athletic ability. That kind of sentiment gets tossed around a lot nowadays but in is case it was so true. The size and speed were ridiculous. Like Lebron is to badketball....only moreso.

Re: Bo Jackson just turned 50

Honestly, my reaction to seeing this thread title was "there is no way that Bo Jackson isn't already 60."

Then I thought about it and realized that I have no concept of when Bo Jackson played.

Re: Bo Jackson just turned 50

I saw him strike out four times in a game in Yankee Stadium many, many years ago, and then the roar of the crowd that immediately followed the fourth K was silenced by a Steve Balboni home run.

Putting that aside, hats off to Bo for being such a superior athlete. Few MNF plays are more historically notable than his steam-rolling of Bosworth at the goal line. Should be an interesting 30 for 30.

Of the list of soon-to-be 50s, I'd say Matthew Broderick is the least surprising. Despite his perpetually young-looking face, he just seemed like an older dude in Election, and that was what--15 year ago?
