Netflix Instant - Cool TV & Movies: Sportsball Edition!

So if any of your cats and kittens know me in real life, you know I have no clue what the hell sports are all about. It's ironic, really. My dad was a linebacker in college, you'd think I would've picked up some of that passion from him. Nope, my rebellion was learning guitar and listening to Pantera instead. In the interest of learning new things, I was actually pretty excited when I heard that ESPN's 30 FOR 30 documentary series hit Netflix Instant. A lot of legitimately great directors have been involved in this series and the topics all seem to be a hell of a lot more interesting than most ESPN programming. Below are my 3 picks that I will be checking out this weekend:

Wayne Gretzky is a name I know mostly from the SNES games that were named after him but this story about his contract negotions sounds intense.

C'mon, the OJ White Bronco fiasco through the eyes of the sports world? That sounds interesting!

I was never too much into Mountain Dew or XTREME!!! sports like BMX or any of that, but seeing Spike Jonze's name attached to this documentary

So that's it for this week. If anyone of your more sports oriented types know of any other good installments of this series, please let me know. I'm up for checking them out.
