ESPN’s 30 for 30 series has been hitting home runs with their subject matters and this week’s is no different.
Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder was definitely one of the more interesting characters on sports television. A handicapper, he was given huge legitimacy when CBS put him on The NFL Today and he joined the number one NFL pregame show with host Brent Musburger, Phylis George and Irv Cross. It gave respectability to gamblers and handicappers.
But the show had a volatile chemistry and in this clip, Brent, Phylis, Hank Goldberg all discuss the very famous Musburger/Greek fight that landed on the front page of the New York Post.
This is the trailer for the documentary.
This should be quite interesting to watch and I’ll have a review of this either later tonight or Tuesday afternoon.
