ESPN’s 30 for 30 might be the most engrossing movie series ever conceived. The stories are incredible, the interviews are overtly personal, and the usage of real footage lets those of us who didn’t gain sports sentience until the late ’90s relive events that would’ve otherwise gone unexperienced by our millennial minds. My favorite so far is “You Don’t Know Bo,” but you can’t go wrong with a single one of them.
ESPN looks to improve on their impressive track record of 30 for 30s with “Hit It Hard,” which will document the life of arguably the most polarizing golfer of all time, John Daly. Here’s the trailer.
It just takes one look at John for you to know all you need to know about him. The blonde mullet that he’s been rocking for decades and the cigarette that’s always hanging from his mouth make it so that you aren’t surprised when photos of him with topless women or videos of him singing “Knocking On Heaven’s Door” at a bar days after he almost died of a collapsed lung surface. Dude cares less about what other people think about him than anybody who has ever lived. At least that’s what I always thought until I saw this trailer. It appears as if, maybe, other people are why John acted the way he did/does…
There’s only one way to find out. Get ready to hit the television hard on Tuesday, November 1 at 8:00 p.m. EST for the world premiere of this instant classic..
