Bo's book, "Bo Knows' is one of my favorite sports biographies. It hit the perfect blend of borderline mythology and anecdotal evidence. Probably what got me knowing about Bo was Techmo Bowl. From there I had to see that actual guy which is what turned me on to football.

I watched the documentary last night, and while it wasn't as good as the book, I got to watch it with my kids and answer alot of questions for them. It was great nostalgia and a chance to revel in one of the last mythical sports figures ever. It is tough in the world of You Tube and helicopter parents and scouts for a mythology to grow in the imagination of the public like it did with Bo.
