Princess Sparkle April 16, 2015 Share April 16, 2015 (edited) The new (relatively) 30 for 30 "I Hate Christian Laettner" showed up on Netflix, so I watched it and really enjoyed it. I was too young to know who he was when he was actually playing college basketball, so I went in with no preconceived notions of him. He did come off as a bit of a dick, but no more so than some of the other players I've seen in other 30 for 30s (I'm lookin at you Eric Dickerson and Craig James). And no one will ever out-asshole Bill Laimbeer, at least to me. I loved the Bad Boys doc, but every time Laimbeer spoke, I wanted to punch him in the face. After the Christian Laettner doc, I wanted to rewatch The Fab Five (since a few of them appeared in the doc), but it looks like that one isn't on Netflix anymore. Bummer. I also watched "Slaying the Badger" after Sharpie66 mentioned it above, and was fascinated, since I know nothing about cycling. And honestly, while Greg Lemond's life was fascinating on it's own and his relationship with Bernard Hinault was interesting, I could've watched an hour of him snarking on Lance Armstrong. For whatever reason, him telling Lance Armstrong's mother that there was nothing he could do to make Lance less of an asshole was hysterical to me (I wish I could remember the exact quote he said) Edited April 20, 2015 by Princess Sparkle 1 Link to comment
