                      Both parts were fantastic. With all the great spots, (inc. Bob Gibson and Bob Beamon) one of the most poignant parts is that huge curve, otherwise a perfect bell curve, that shows the impact of two world wars so glaringly.

                        Surely I'm not the only one who has noticed that Bob Bryan at 48:08 looks remarkably like Jon Bois. Coincidence?

                        Yeah, probably.

                                            "Outside of the four major sports, prospects are equally grim. We're often forced to resort to technicalities to find any Bobs at all."
                                            This is the type of sports journalism I need, but don't deserve.

                                                        makes me wonder what the second most boring name is, after Bob.

                                                          Wasn't expecting to watch almost 2 hours of Bob and still be intrigued to the last second. I can't even watch some really interesting space documentaries and not get bored, you have officially won (in my books) the best documentary for not only being super interesting, but also making me not turn away from it at 12AM on a school day when I have to wake up in 6 Hours. Good video dude, really amazing research, awesome explanations, and I wish I could help with The Bob Emergency so that we could get more, but I personally would not like to be called "Bob". I hope that I can totally see another one of these sorts of documentaries that are two hours long again.

                                                            I wonder how many people after watching this either consciously on unconsciously name their child bob, I bet you its not zero.

They're a remarkable combination of research, production, and narration, and I was certainly not expecting to be so moved by the end. I love your work, but this might be the best of the bunch.

Also lets be honest the Bryan brothers are gonna play tennis forever. They keep retiring and then they just show up again. It's like they get bored and are like "you wanna play tennis?" and then go make the semis at another slam. It's kinda like Federer actually.
