30 for 30's Relation To Sport Business

As a documentary, 30 for 30 focuses on the real stories of big sport moments and athletes. You'll see the stories of professional teams and players that made history as well as headlines unrelated to their sport history. Like O.J. Simpson's infamous police car chase. These are the stories that gripped sports fans around the world when they were fresh in the headlines and the success in some of these stories still rings out loud for many. Fans who remember their triumphs will never forget the events that made them happy. And other stories will provide more insight into events where we wonder, what happened? Like in the case of Olympic brothers Mark and Dave Schultz, Dave being murdered by a mentor of theirs. It's a deeper look into major events in sport and you do not want to miss a single episode!
