      "What About Bob" doesn't make your list of movies with a character named Bob?

    You should do a video on Messi and Ronaldo and how much better they are compared to the other players playing today.

      This is an amazing video and I loved it but I was disappointed to not see an AFL player on it

        I’ve never been into sports and analytical videos like this. They’ve always come off as either too cold or too passionate. Either about sports percentages that no one cared about or protecting the image of the home team (which I’m just as guilty of, go pack). These two videos, and all of your videos I’ve seen so far, are wonderfully humanist. It’s so easy to forget there are real people behind these stories. Today I feel like all we hear (or want to hear) from sports celebrities is the worst of humanity. It was nice to hear about solidarity, compassion, sadness, loss, and hope. This video reminded me that even if you’re a Bob, you matter. Thank you for your video.

          Hi. I can't help but notice that you missed Bob Horner.

            Imagine being Bob Beamon when the distance was announced. Realizing that at that moment, you are the greatest at something. Ever. Not only are you are the greatest, but unquestionably so. No human in all of history even comes close to your accomplishment in your field. I understand why he collapsed with overwhelming emotion. Jon, you captured the power of that moment so well in this video. The footage of him covering his face after being told the distance brings tears to my eyes.

                          Like holy cow. What did I just do watching 90 minutes of a YouTube video about Bob's? I think I'm just so blown away about the writing and research. It's hard to fathom how much work this probably was. All I can say is: You've got a gift. Keep using it

He has an amazing mullet and his yard deserves a cover on Good Housekeeping. This Bob using his amazing athletic ability to wield a leaf blower for 2 hours straight after cutting his grass. :D

                                                              This story about Bobs in sports makes me think of my own grandpa who's name is bob. He was never a pro sports player but I remember his stories about his days playing sports in the 50s. He holds his high schools record for track 100 yard dash and most points scored in a game in basketball and he will always have those records because the school closed down a long time ago and hes stayed in his home town and watched it dwindle from a few thousand to only about 50 people living there.

I've done research deep dives for trends to help me gain an advantage in fantasy football. I've researched topics from getting shat on by a bird to which serial killers went unnoticed for the longest. I am a nerd, and i piggyback off of data collected from other nerds. But "what if we took away Barry Bonds' bat" and "what's the saddest punt ever" are truly groundbreaking adventures into analytical nerdom.

                                                                                  I thought Jon's soyboy politics could go away for a bit, but the study of Bob's has turned into a study of oppression of black Bobs. Just like his MMA "documentary" was really a study of "muh evil right wingers"....God, I love Jon Bois, when he just let's us see the MOST INTERESTING facts for themselves, but when he does the "look at the victim perservering" bit, I lose interest. Go ahead and claim these are somehow the best possible stories about Bobs sports has to offer, but I'll go ahead and assume they were chosen because they reinforce the modern leftist narratives of long dead oppression and "white supremacy".

                                                                                  Bet Jon Bois is for open borders, gun control, censoring "hate speech" (which means facts that aren't very nice, most of the time) and so on. Just waiting for his video where he shoe horns abortion rights into it

                                                                                    Oh, and for his glasses, of course.
