    I've always loved the athletes that do stuff that just make you shake your head in amazement.....Bo not only did that but took it to another level.....and then did it in 2 sports.

    Damn the Bengals, but glad I am the age to have witnessed many of those crazy doings.

    I was at this game in 1990, Jackson was ridiculous

    2 assists, a HR, a steal, a walk, scored 2 runs.

    He is argueably the best athlete of my time. Dude could do it all, and make it look so non-chelant(sp). The 30 for 30 special on him, on ESPN, is a must watch.

    There are great athletes in every sport being played today, but it's probably not a stretch to say that I won't see another like him in my lifetime.

    Without a doubt, the best athlete I've ever witnessed. I wished for so long that he would just forget about football. Without the injuries...what might have been. Wow.

    Bo Jackson now does long bike (as in bicycle) rides for charity with Lance Armstrong, among others. He's in his early 50s now. Amazing.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Probably the best overall athlete I have seen in my lifetime. Just remarkable what he could do. I just wish he had concentrated on baseball and would have had a long career playing that sport. It would have been something to see what he could have done over a 15 to 20 year span.
