The Legend Of Jimmy The Greek
ESPN's 30 For 30 series was made in honor of the network's 30th anniversary and is a collection of 30 documentaries made by 30 different filmmakers chronicling different aspects of sports. While I do not intend to watch all 30, I will review the ones I do watch. The first one I watched (though) not the first produced was entitled The Legend of Jimmy The Greek and it detailed the life of the famous sports oddsmaker. It begins with a ruckus involving him and coworkers from his NFL show and it talks about his rise and ultimate downfall. This proved to be a very interesting and informative piece about a very complicated man.
