I have this here. I’ll see about uploading it in the morning if you can’t find it.
I’m nearly sure I saw it on the UKturks add on for Android TV. In the documentaries, sports, American sports section.
Nice one, Buff.
I recently watched the Bo Jackson one and it’s one of my favourites, what an athlete, hard to believe some of the stories of what he was capable of, a real life superman.
The best one I’ve seen by some distance is once were brothers about the Yugoslav basketball players Divac and Petrovic and the fallout from the civil war, one Serb and one Croat.
Along with Earl Strickland America’s greatest ever Sportsman. Wooo
They’re also releasing one about Vince McMahon’s XFL. Dick Ebersol co-founded it with Vince McMahon and his son is doing the documentary so presume it will be a fluffy enough look at it.
Vince McMahon is a gas man
Muhammad v Larry on BT 2 here
I see ESPN are doing 30 for 30 podcasts now.
Brought a tear to my eye.
Looks like the story had a happy ending, classy move by the Cubs.
A great organisation.
Watched Catholics Vs Convicts today. What a great t-shirt!
I was at the Miami- Notre Dame game last year, lots of those floating around.
That should make up for the 14 years they left him twisting in the wind. The fans will no doubt give him a big cheer, despite ruining the poor fuckers life.
Sports fans are gas* cunts all the same.
Barmans statement is worth reading, cant imagine the shit the poor cunts had to go through for the sake of a sporting event
Steve Bartman issued the following statement
“Although I do not consider myself worthy of such an honor, I am deeply moved and sincerely grateful to receive an official Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series Championship ring. I am fully aware of the historical significance and appreciate the symbolism the ring represents on multiple levels. My family and I will cherish it for generations. Most meaningful is the genuine outreach from the Ricketts family, on behalf of the Cubs organization and fans, signifying to me that I am welcomed back into the Cubs family and have their support going forward. I am relieved and hopeful that the saga of the 2003 foul ball incident surrounding my family and me is finally over.
I humbly receive the ring not only as a symbol of one of the most historic achievements in sports, but as an important reminder for how we should treat each other in today’s society. My hope is that we all can learn from my experience to view sports as entertainment and prevent harsh scapegoating, and to challenge the media and opportunistic profiteers to conduct business ethically by respecting personal privacy rights and not exploit any individual to advance their own self-interest or economic gain
Moreover, I am hopeful this ring gesture will be the start of an important healing and reconciliation process for all involved. To that end, I request the media please respect my privacy, and the privacy of my family. I will not participate in interviews or further public statements at this time.
Words alone cannot express my heartfelt thanks to the Ricketts family, Crane Kenney, Theo Epstein, and the entire
Cubs organization for this extraordinary gift, and for providing the City of Chicago and Cubs fans everywhere an
unforgettable World Championship in 2016. I am happy to be reunited with the Cubs family and positively moving forward with my life
He should have been kicked to death.
You weirdo. There’s no crying in baseball.
