There are about 6 shows that Ivan and I will watch together. Anything with Anthony Bourdain, Man vs. Food, Chopped, House Hunters International (he claims to not like it, but I know he does), Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives & 30 for 30. Before I met Ivan, I had never watched a 30 for 30. I never turned on ESPN and I avoided the sports section of netflix.
I enjoy a good live game, but I’m not the kind of person to sit and watch a football or basketball game on t.v. I had no use for ESPN. Now, if the tv isn’t on the food network, it’s on EPSN.
Have you seen 30 for 30? They have a ton up on netflix right now. They are sports documentaries produced by ESPN. Guys, I’m obsessed with them. It started out with Ivan picking them for us to watch after he sat through one too many episodes of House Hunters. Then I started watching them when I was home by myself. They are just so intriguing. Here are some of my favorites so far.
Brothers in Exile (Livan and Orlando Hernandez)
The Price of Gold (Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding)
Bad Boys (The Detroit Pistons)
You Don’t Know Bo (Bo Jackson)
Hillsborough (Hillsborough Tragedy)
Fernando Nation ( Fernando Valenzuela)
White, Blue & White (Osvaldo Ardiles/Ricky Villa)
