    Check out 30 for 30: The Best That Never Was on Netflix.

    The story of Marcus Dupree. This guy was a beast in highschool football and college football. And eventually made his way to the NFL after a 5 year hiatus. There's more to this story though.

    I could ramble on about his story, but it's best if you watch it yourself. As a football fan you won't regret it.

    It is a good once. How about the fact that his best friend as a child was the son of one of the main KKK guys from Mississippi Burning.

    Thats why I said his story had a lot more to it. He brought hope and positive attention to a small town that had only been spotlighted in a negative way before.

    He seems like a humble guy that was content with living his dream of making a return after his career was thought to be over. Truly could have been an all time great if things would have went right.

    The 30 for 30 on Bo Jackson is a good one also. Another truly great athlete that had his career cut short due to injury.

    • Once Brothers about the Yugoslav basketball team
    • Two Escobars about the 1994 Colombia WC team

    I'll check out the ones on Netflix. Watching Elway to Marino now. 30-30 is good stuff.

    Of Miracles and Men is really good to even if Slava Fetisov is a hypocrite now.

    There's a thread on the 30 for 30s somewhere around here. Once Brothers is my favorite but you really can't go wrong with any of them. There's maybe been 2 or 3 I wasn't too crazy about.

    I remember at the time how the three Croatian guys would not talk to Vlade Divac because of the war. But I did not know about the incident with the Croatian flag. That was such a sad story.
