ESPN 30 for 30 films
 
So, I'm the proud owner of Volume 1, which is the first fifteen movies. Just got done watching the third one. Some things I've learned...

1. Wayne Gretzky really was hockey.
2. The Baltimore Colts Band won me over. I may adopt the Ravens as my second team (but never when they play the Chiefs).
3. Donald Trump killed the USFL the day he bought a team. I never even knew about it. I think it would have had staying power.

Anyone watched all of them?

I watched the Benji Wilson story last night... holy shit, that was touching. I'd never even heard of the dude.

Benji is the best 30 for 30 I've seen.

I watched the start of it. The Sam Bowie (sp?) one right before that was really good, too.

Also, regarding the one about the USFL...Donald Trump has always been ugly and talked funny, huh?

Best thing ESPN has ever done.

Clearly the best 30 for 30 is bringing the original rules of basketball back to the university of Kansas.

The one on Miami was wonderful. They trolled the hell out of college football.

Man they've fallen hard.

I remember watching part of that one when it was on TV. That's part of this volume, so I'm looking forward to getting to it.

Two Escobars is my favorite.

I like Vlade so I liked Once Brothers.

The Sam Bowie one was SEC storied, but still good.

My favorite ones from the first volume were the Ricky Williams and SMU specials.

The one on the Raiders is interesting.

ChiefsCountry 12-24-2012 08:25 PM

My favorite was the SMU one. The Miami one would be second.

^This, all of the 30 on 30s are great but those are the best, I stream them on netflix. Awesome.

My favorite is the Reggie Miller/Knicks one. I don't even care about basketball that much, it's just really well put together. That they got pretty much everyone involved in the story to contribute helps too.

Some really great stories that most people never heard of or behind the scenes stuff that enhances my love of sports.
