Happy 50th Birthday to Bo Jackson!
Arguably the best athlete in the history of the universe and other unknown celestial bodies turns 50 today. He could still probably outrun all of us, outhit all of us, and leave all of us in a bloody pile of pulp with one lowered shoulder as well. The cool thing about Bo is that even Auburn’s biggest rivals will admit that they have never seen a guy like him. He’s likeable, he’s a great athlete, and he does a lot of good for others.
He has many accolades in his career: the Heisman trophy, ran over Brian Bosworth, played in the NFL Pro Bowl, and was named the MVP of the 1989 MLB All-Star game. But probably one of the best honors, or I guess we could say something that shows his true legend, was his absolute domination in Tecmo Bowl.
I counted 423 missed tackles. Happy Birthday, Bo.
