I'm watching it right now on ESPN. He's in a shitty ass White Sox hat and not a Royals hat, where he actually made a name for himself.

He did that sh!t last year too. Maybe he's still bitter about the Royals releasing him after he hurt his hip.

regardless, I still remember seeing Bo catch the damn ball in the outfield with his bare hand then toss it to homeplate. I dont think it even bounced!


Back then, that was a helluva feat

And

also breaking the bat over his thigh

And I'm bitter about him playing for the f**king Raiders.

Maybe it's the fact that he LIVES in Chicago and all his business interests are there. A man has to look out for his family - especially when his playing career is cut short.

Because the Raiders drafted him?

What NFL team originally drafted Bo?

Well they had Corey Dillon as one.

Rudi Johnson is another, although he hasn't put on a consistent basis, like Dillon did.

Probably one of the worst personel decisions they ever made IMO. Err, when they were good that is.



And I'm bitter about him playing for the f**king Raiders.

Me too, still pissed about it.

Al Davis talked him into playing, he drafted him IIRC. Two Pro sports athlete was a big thing in the media then.

One of the few athletes ever to participate in two professional sports, Jackson may have been the best of all--certainly the best since the great Jim Thorpe.


At Auburn University, Jackson won the 1985 Heisman Trophy as the nation's outstanding college player. A 6-foot-1, 228-pound running back with speed, he gained 4,303 yards in 650 attempts and scored 43 touchdowns during his four years as a starter.


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made him the first choice overall in the 1986 NFL draft, but he chose to play professional baseball instead. After spending most of the 1986 season in the minor leagues, he joined the AL's Kansas City Royals.


Although he batted only .235, he demonstrated substantial power with 22 home runs in just 116 games in 1987. When the season was over, he joined the NFL's Los Angeles Raiders, who had chosen him in that year's draft, rushing for 554 yards in 81 carries, a 6.8 average, and scoring 4 touchdowns in 7 games.


Jackson continued playing both sports through 1990, but he suffered a series hip injury in a post-season game with the Raiders, ending his football career and threatening his baseball career. After surgery and a rehabilitation assignment to the minor leagues, he played in 23 games with the Chicago White Sox in 1991.


The following year, Jackson had an artificial hip implanted and he missed the entire 1992 season. However, he returned to the White Sox in 1993, batting .232 with 16 home runs in 85 games. Continuing problems with the hip forced him to retire during the 1994 season, after he hit 13 home runs in 75 games with the California Angels.


During his NFL career, Jackson carried the ball 515 times for 2,782 yards, a 5.4 average, and scored 16 rushing touchdowns. He caught 40 passes for 352 yards, an 8.8 average, and 2 touchdowns.


He collected 657 hits in 723 major league games, with 96 doubles, 17 triples, and 138 home runs

Barry Sanders was by far the best to watch run.


The ol timers like Red Grange and Thorpe would have been awesome to see in person.

Then apics1 answered that question. Check a few posts up.

That has nothing to do with it. He played for the CWS for a season I think after he was trying to make a comeback and I seriously doubt that his businesses would drop in sales if he wore a KC hat instead of a CWS hat. You can ask anyone in the country about what do you remember Bo Jackson in baseball for and certainly they wouldnt even mention the CWS.

Oh bullshit. Fans are goofy. You invested a portion of your day to cuss and discuss Bo's decision to wear a CWS cap over a Royals cap. Are you telling me that you would buy a widget from BoCo instead of the same widget from XYZ since Bo pissed you off? No, you'll buy from XYZ because Bo didn't wear a Royals cap.
