Who Is The Greatest Athlete Ever?
I just recently watched the 30 For 30 on Bo Jackson, again. I love that documentary because it always reminds me of how great an athlete he was. If you haven't seen the documentary, you do so below.
But this also brings up a conversation I've had many times. Who is the greatest athlete of all time. It's tough to watch this documentary and not think it's Bo Jackson. And he will always be my answer. The ability to do what he was able to is insane. To think he would play baseball until the season was over. Miss NFL training camp, and just jump right into it and be one of the best players in the league.
It really is a shame his career was cut short. But just look at what he did when he finally came back after hip replacement with the White Sox. Home run.
Can you think of a better overall athlete? I can't.
