I was going to put this post up yesterday but I figured I would give people at least a day to watch the "short documentary" on the Von Erich's. After months of wait The Von Erich 30 for 30 piece aired on Sports Center/ESPN on Friday, February 27 at 6 pm Eastern time. I saw from my stats that some people may have had a difficult time finding the video or documentary that was aired.
Though this 30 for 30 piece didn't capture the full essence of the Von Erich family it did do a great job of giving a little background into the families successes and failures. Also it depicted how Kevin Von Erich coped with his brothers passing's in a very subtle yet interesting way. Now I can sing the praises of this "short documentary" forever, but everybody is going to have their opinion; so if you haven't seen and want to now is your chance to form your opinion.

I love looking back wrestling's past. I view my job as bring new life to the part of wrestling some people thought was gone.
