It’s come to this boys and girls, Bo Jackson is having to explain to young sports fans who Bo Jackson is. 

Yep, the greatest athlete in American history is unknown to kids today.

“You ever heard of the Heisman trophy?…I won that.”

That’s kind of funny when Bo Jackson says it, but Jason White’s been trying to use that line at bars for the past 12 years.
