It started with Bowman, then to a story about a refugee/amputee, then the video game segment.

Bowman & Willis success stories...who's got it better than us at linebacker? nobody!

Totally...no question why these two are brothers and have high character!

Edit: This all occurred I believe in the summer of 2008 (so in a 3 month period he lost the dad that raised him, found out after that he wasn't his bio dad, found out his bio dad was killed, met his half-sister and family AND made eye contact with the man that shot and killed his dad). Man, sometimes we forget these players have lives outside of football and now I'm hypersensitive to Eric Wright and his personal matters...esp. after Adrian Peterson lost his son.

Emotional piece.
That was great; it's nice to get to know these players off the field. I had heard Pat's story before his video but hadn't heard really anything about Navorro minus the pot thing. I think that started when his dad died, must have devastated him.

Thought they just glorified something that probably millions of people have dealt with on a daily basis. Was hoping there was more to the story, but there wasn't.
Willis' story was a helluva lot more interesting.

I'm not filled in on this. What is up with Eric Wright?

Yeah some what but still was nice to learn more about Navorro and see inside his life a bit. Really all I knew is he had 2 twin daughters. Nothing about a son named Navorro Jr., nothing on his step dad and real dad.

Of course, Willis' story is probably one of the best in the league.

I don't understand this about reality shows. How did ESPN find out that Bowman was going home to look for his half siblings? And if Bowman didn't know that his biological father was murdered, then ESPN didn't know either?

It just reminds me of MTV's true life I'm cheating on girls friend. Wouldn't the girlfriend ask why are there cameras following you around?
