What to Watch: ‘The Two Escobars’
The general opinion of the group here is that ESPN’s ”30 for 30″ series is mostly excellent. Tonight, the one I’ve been looking forward to finally airs.
I don’t usually pimp stuff on ESPN, but what the hell, this seems worth it.
“The Two Escobars” is the story of the growth of drug-culture football in Colombia and the tragedy of murder of Andres Escobar after his own goal against the United States in World Cup 1994.
It showed at the Tribeca Film Festival, and it’s received great reviews everywhere it’s been seen.It airs tonight at 9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT. In this World Cup time, it’s a nice way to end the evening. Enjoy. And here’s the introduction video:
