  • ESPN 30:for:30 Thread

    This program, the 30 for 30 series by ESPN, is the best television sports documentary series of all-time.

    It deserves it's own thread here, as it's all about sports, but always more than sports.

    Three times that I can recall this season, I have been moved to tears watching it.

    Who caught the last night episode on Marcus Dupree?
    Is there anyone here who was around when he was making his legend?

    Anyone watch the one about the Bosnia/Croatia/Serbia stuff?

    The Two Escobar's was the most riveting one for me. I wish I had saved that on my DVR.

    Anyone know how or if there's a way I can take it from my DVR and somehow upload it to youtube or somewhere to share with everyone?

    The Two Escobars and The Best that Never Was are the only two I've caught in entirety, but they've both been excellent.

      They are all so amazing. Even when its a subject I wasn't interested in, I still thought it was really good.

        I remember when I made this thread when the 30 for 30 started an only I posted in it, sigh.

        Volume 1 of the 30 for 30 comes out on DVD on December 17th. It has the first 15 shown.

          Run Ricky Run was great, most are pretty good. I haven't seen a ton of them.
          I want a sig.

            Every single one I've watched has been great. Run Ricky Run was by far my favorite (for obvious reasons). One of my favorite players of all time (and by far one of the most misunderstood) actually had his side of the story aired out.

            Without Bias, The U, Straight Outta LA, June 17th, 1994, Jordan Rides the Bus, One Night in Vegas, Once Brothers (my second favorite) many good episodes.

              Most of them are great but my favorites that I've seen are The U and Run Ricky Run. The Len Bias one was pretty good too. I still need to see the Marcus Dupree and Escobar brother ones.

                The U was ******* awesome.

                  The U was by far my favorite one out of them all. It was so sick haha.

                    These are probably the best shows ever done regarding sports. So far, I've watched The Two Escobars, Run Ricky Run, Without Bias, and I think I'm missing another one.

                    The one I can relate to the most is The Two Escobars, basically because that's what's going on back where I'm from. Very powerful drug lords who have control over anything they wish to control. There has never been any major intervention or influence in sports (publicly, at least), but everything associated with Escobar, such as buying off everyone he wanted to, is the same. I guess the shooting in Mexico City of Salvador Cabanas is definitely a sports intervention, but I'm not from there. Fortunately, Cabanas didn't die. Don't really know how he survived a close range shot, even if it wasn't a particularly strong gun, but I'm glad he did. He was a great player.

                    Never really knew why he was shot, doubt we ever will, but there are conflicting reports about it. He suffered short term memory loss and hasn't played at all since the incident happened back in January. It's still unknown if he will ever return to play.

                    Props to clover_jeez!

                      The Fact that you mentioned Bosnia in your first post makes this Thread Epic.

                        I never saw the Lenny Bias one!
                        Was that this season?
                        I know there are 4 or 5 still on my DVR that I have yet to get to sadly (but I will), but I don't recall seeing that title in my list.

                        The U one was awesome. Tons of racial tensions back there in the city.... wait, now it's like that everywhere in America isn't it? Sad.
                        Sadder is that their football team hasn't really been great in a long time. I miss the days when they were great and had all those **** NFL RB's right there.

                            Ive only seen a few of them. I liked the one about the Knicks and the Pacers but the OJ Simpson one where they showed live footage from the day with the World Cup Opening Ceremony, NBA Finals that year was very good
