Nice interview. He's a good man. I still remember the cheap shot that cost him his hip. If he would have been playing for the Oakland Raiders instead of the LA Traitors, either that would not have happened or there would have been one fewer Bills on the active roster. I don't remember Bo ever complaining though. He just carried on making the best of his new circumstance.

He is still one cool dude and the short interview reinforces my take. I hope he went back and paid for all the windows he smashed with bricks.

Wow...what an incredible athlete he was.

I hope he and the other celebs actually get a bike fitting of sorts. They may be thinking they have the legs and lungs for it...but their butts may not agree.

I wonder where the media was with all the tornado damage. I guess there just weren't any political points to earn. Good for Bo. Alabama received more damage from Katrina than the looter-infested cesspool that is New Orleans. Then add floods a few years later and now the tornadoes. But the media is silent as usual when it comes to facts.
Way to go Bo!

You should seek professional help.

Please don't pull "facts" out of your ass. It's icky and they smell up the place.

Deaths from Katrina:

Alabama: 2
New Orleans: 771

Insured losses:

Alabama: $1 billion
New Orleans: $27 billion

I went to a game at Auburn while Bo was playing. Great seats on about the tenth row on the 40 yard line. It was a low scoring slugfest with UGA hanging onto a slim lead going into the fourth quarter. Auburn was slowly driving down the field toward the opposite end zone and had the ball around midfield. The QB rolled back and tossed the ball to Bo who was running to the right toward my side of the field. From my viewpoint I could see a crease, like a parting of the seas straight from where I sat to the goalpost on the other side. Bo saw it too and pivoted left, reversing the field. As he ran along the crease, I could see UGA defender after UGA defender diving to the ground just behind Bo as he ran a bee line toward the end zone, pretty much untouched, scoring what would be the winning touchdown. It broke my heart to see it, but it was one of the most beautiful things I ever saw in a football game. Almost Herschel level.

You describe this like a man who has a real passion for college football.
