If I die with a body that wasn’t completely wrecked, I’d feel I’d completely wasted it.
American BMX rider extraordinaire Matt Hoffman, who was able to break his previous world records and jump over 26 feet. On the way to achieving that goal, he was in two comas, had 21 broken bones, 23 surgeries and over 100 concussions. You’ll find even more detail in the ESPN 30 for 30 series: The Birth of Big Air.
Sounds brutal!! I didn‘t know people could even still function after 100 concussions.
You wouldn’t have thought so! But he was born to ride. He picked it up as a kid and was hooked. He just loves it.
Wow! Masochism, but to each their own life. He was happy, so there you go!
Yeah and he’s still very much together. He loves the adrenalin of it. He even jumped out of a plane with his bike.
Amazing shot! What a story. I like that series on ESPN.
It’s been great. I’ve seen most of them. Do you have a favourite one?
They’re all really well done. The Nancy Kerrigan one stands out and the OJ Simpson series was amazing. Do you have any favorites?
It’s amazing to think how much happened on that day. Worked well there was no narration or talking heads. The Netflix series was something else too https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2017/12/08/lines-of-the-day-thepeoplevojsimpson/
I really liked the one on the Buffalo Bills and the one about the Washington Redkins’ replacements. To be honest there are few very poor ones. A really enjoyable series.
