ESPN’s ’30 For 30′ on the XFL Is Going to Be Nothing Short of Amazing
ESPN has been boring for years now, with the exception of their 30 for 30 documentaries, which are all good. 30 for 30 is the only program ESPN airs now that I watch, and they better keep cranking 'em out. The newest one, debuting February 2nd, is the story of Vince McMahon's XFL -- the now defunct pro football alternative to the NFL. Check out this preview and tell me you don't have the goose pimples all up on you:
Ask any real sports fan who "He Hate Me" is, and they don't even blink. They answer the question like they have been waiting for someone to ask them for years. The XFL, in theory, was a great idea that was headed up by just the right person to get it done. It had all of the elements of fun that the NFL lacks. The NFL is known as the No Fun League because they don't let their many, many over the top personalities express themselves.
The XFL had all the hype you could stomach, but was ultimately done-in by an inferior group of athletes/football players. If only they could have recruited top-notch NFL talent, we might be having a very different conversation right now. I will view this program with my eyeballs on February the 2nd for sure.
