sports posters from the 80s
Because nothing says "class" like a purple tuxedo.
I used to love seeing these in the shoe store whenever I'd go get new sneakers. There was a George Gervin poster that was truly great.
The Iceman. That was classic.
 I always thought that was a smoker's jacket...
I heard some kids talking on the bus the other day about their photography class. They were talking about the cameras they were using and of them said, "I think they're from the 80's or something." heh.
I can imagine the Bo Jackson from his poster walking into a current training camp and being laughed at, only to blow everyone's minds.
 Bo Jackson..how come ESPN didn't make one of their 30/30 docs about him? I saw the list of films, some really lame ones in that batch..no room for Bo Knows?
 From what I've read, Bo likes to keep to himself; perhaps he didn't want to be bothered with E@#$ or rehashing what could have been.
 Real shame, Bo is such a legend.
Chyll, did you see the Two Escobars film form that series? It was excellent.
 E@#$ made a film about Pablo and Nas? Can't say that I have, Jazz >;)
 They did interview Bo in the ESPN documentary "Roll Tide/War Eagle". He told some great stories. Like how when he was getting recruited that Bear Bryant called him once and all the kids in the neighborhood would come by his house and say, "See that phone over there...that's the phone that Bear Bryant called."
I agree that a 30/30 about Bo would be great. There are so many legendary stories about Bo that it wouldn't be hard to put together a nice documentary about him. But, Chyll is right, Bo likes to keep to himself and has always had a speech impediment. So, I'm not sure he would go for it.
