For those of use that were fortunate to watch Bo at Auburn or even in the Pros, it changed the way you viewed an athlete. There are very few football plays that every time they touched the ball, you thought something was going happen. Bo was certainly one, Barry Sanders, and I would say Cam fell into that category.
I've posted this story before but in the spring of 1985 at the A-day game, they had all the kids come down onto the field and line up at the 40 yard line. I was 11 at the time. Bo started from the endzone. If someone could beat him to the other side, he would take them out for dinner. He was the fastest man I've ever seen. There wan't anyone within 40 yards of him. I still tell that story today that I once raced Bo Jackson.
Thanks for that, great story, thanks for competing for Auburn too
Amazing story. Thanks for sharing.
Here are a couple of stories about Bo:
Bo and I are the same age and at AU at the same time. I worked at Wendy's and he would come in and order taco chips (went on the taco salad) and ask for cheese sauce. We did not offer that, but I always made an exception for him. Yes, he did pay. I charged him the price of a small order of fries.
Also, my brother was a freshman on the AU baseball team in 1985. Before Bo was ineligible (thanks to the asshat at the Bucs), I saw Bo make a great play in CF. During that year I would go to home games to watch my brother play bullpen catcher and 1B.
During one home game against LSU (I think), Bo was in CF with a runner on 2nd. The batter hit a long fly ball to right CF. Bo caught it on the warning track, his back to the runner. The runner tagged, Bo turned and fired a BB to 3B (ball did not hit the ground) and tagged out the runner by at least one step.
The runner stood up, looked at BO and just smiled. AMAZING. Very very few, if any, outfielders, college or MLB, could make that catch and throw.
Awesome story. Thanks for sharing. The 30 for 30 on Bo was directed beautifully.
Thanks for sharing
