Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

A random memory

I was 16, and watched the fight with a bunch of friends at Ari Pollack‘s house. About 10 seconds into the action, I bet $5 on Spinks. Why? Because I loved Spinks, I loved underdogs and I was a man of hope.

It took me significantly more time to drive to Ari’s house than it did to watch all 91 seconds.
