Yesterday morning, a listing on the TV pages in our local newspaper caught my eye. Having already been impressed by ESPN’s O.J.: Made In America documentary a few months ago, I thought that Pin Kings might be promising and worth the hour it would take to watch last evening on ESPN2. And so, I bit. Wow!
Without giving too much away, Pin Kings is a 1-hour documentary telling the story of a couple of high school classmates and wrestling teammates who made their mark on the wrestling world back in the mid-1970s. After that, their lives took markedly different paths which eventually crossed later in life.
I don’t want to spoil the story for you. Suffice it to say, I highly recommend that you give an hour of your time to watching Pin Kings. It’s an amazing story of redemption that would be worth viewing with high schoolers, then discussing.
Enough said. . . .
