Presented today on Wednesday. It happens sometimes. Anyway, I recently watched a fascinating documentary about Bo Jackson, who was probably the best athlete to ever play professional sports. At the height of his career, Nike built a campaign called “Bo Knows” around Bo’s athletic prowess, which made sense since he was starring in both baseball and football.
