ESPN’s “30 for 30” series is my all-time favorite sports documentary (or any documentary series, for that matter) series, so obviously I’m stoked that ESPN’s coming out with a brand new volume of the best stories in sports. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. If you haven’t seen any of the films yet, you can probably find some online and the rest come on infrequently on ESPN, usually at awkward times, so it’s probably best to record them and watch later.
The 30 for 30 page on ESPN is here. In case you were wondering, some of my favorite documentaries from the original volume are The Two Escobars, No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson, and Guru of Go, although I haven’t seen all of them, just most.
I highly recommend watching these documentaries, as they follow some of the biggest stories in the last 30 years. The series was meant to celebrate 30 years of ESPN, but became really popular, so it’s continuing.
