June 17, 1994 Do You Remember Where You Were?

Last night on ESPN2, I watched the 30 for 30 film June 17, 1994.  It was, quite possibly, one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. No sitdown interviews. No narration. This film, directed by Brett Morgen, features carefully edited footage from this epic day in sports. This day featured the NBA Finals, Arnold Palmer's last round at the US Open, The NY Rangers Stanely Cup victory parade, the opening day of the World Cup, and...oh yeah, the OJ Simpson Bronco chase. On one of the most memorable days in pop culture and sports history, we witnessed the birth of reality television and the evolution of ESPN into a sports "entertainment" network.
