    A little OT I know, but if any of you have a spare hour or two this weekend, WATCH THIS FILM. I had heard so much about it, and finally got to seeing it today. Best movie about sports I have ever seen in my life. That is not an exaggeration. Absolutely heart wrenching. Watch it.

    I saw it listed on Netflix and meant to watch but never did. On your recommendation today, I did. Incredible story. Thanks for reminding me to watch.

    I'm sure it'll come on a few more times as we get closer to the World Cup (Columbia's back in it for the first time in awhile) and it is a must-watch for anyone.

    Absolutely fascinating documentary that deals with sports, history, culture, society, politics, and economics.

    Probably one of the most athletic feats ever? Lol. Still can't get enough of this. Can't help but think Columbia's outcome would have been a lot different if he wasn't arrested and held out of the World Cup.

    Maybe the best of many great 30s show.

    Will cheer for Columbia this WC. First time back since 98.

    It was good but so are a lot of the 30 for 30s.

    Was it that one or the other story about Escobar that got into the plight of the rhinos?

    Escobar imported a few Rhinos and they basically became feral, there are like 40 of them running around now, they have no natural predators and are still expanding. A few of them went down river and started killing farm animals so the government was going to cull them but public outcry prevented it. So a whole bunch of African rhinos have free reign in the wild in a South American jungle.
