Happy Birthday to Vincent Edward "Bo" Jackson.
A close look at two-sport athlete Bo Jackson was a super human ! Why ? Because everyone knew but didn’t believe that Bo could be a living myth. From getting the nickname “Bo” for killing boars. Or a man seeing him jump a Volkswagen. The things that were unbelievable to many Bo made it ordinary. That’s why others saw him as a modern Superhero.
Bo Jackson was offered to play with the Yankees out of High School by the Yankees Legend Owner George Steinbrenner offering 250k (a signing bonus) till he signed with the Yankees, Bo said no… Bo Jackson told Bear Bryant that he wasn’t going to sign with Alabama..
Bo was special, Bo was given a gift by God & Bo loved things so simple he loved track, he loved football, baseball & he loved his Mom.
I never got the chance to see what Bo Jackson did live but I appreciate what he did, he he did it & to everyone who didn’t… just know Bo Knows.
