    Its here in Miami as well.
    Was going to post it

    I love Pete and his story, kinda sad at times.
    I can relate to his life by some things that have happened in my life as well, not related to BBall of course.

    I recorded it when it first came out about 4 yrs ago. What I remember the most was the rare color footage of Maravich and that Mike Ditka played for Press back in HS. I had heard that Press took all/a lot of the game film when he left LSU. When the film first came out, I had talked to Tommy Hess, who had played with Pete and coached BB at Belaire HS here in BR about Maravich. He had some stories!

    I wish I was old enough to see him play at LSU. Glad he found peace and got his life right before he died.

    That was really well done. Lots of footage I haven't seen. I know LSU has very little footage of Pete. Apparently the people that put togather the documentary had to cobble togather clips from provste collections and other schools film libraries.
