Bo Jackson documentary

Bo Jackson enjoys going to the supermarket much more these days.

Back when he was a two-sport pro athlete and pop culture star more than two decades ago, the family cook couldn't do his grocery shopping without being mobbed by fans. Perhaps surprising for a guy who was once everywhere on TV in a classic ad campaign, not everyone knows Bo anymore.

An admittedly private person who long struggled with stuttering, Jackson has taken on a more public persona recently. He agreed to participate in a documentary about the only man to be selected for both the NFL's Pro Bowl and baseball's All-Star game.

"You Don't Know Bo," about the 1985 Heisman Trophy winner, will premiere Saturday on ESPN after this year's Heisman ceremony.
