Make it happen Lino

One of the ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries was called "June 17, 1994." It was a look at news footage of sports that day, without narration, starting with the World Cup kicking off in Chicago, Arnold Palmer's last round at the U.S. Open, the New York Rangers victory parade, and ending with O.J. Simpson's bronco chase.

It was a great look at a very eventful day in sports, very seemlessly tied together.

With the reports of Bin Laden's death coming on the same day as Pope John Paul II's beatification, I think this is a documentary that Lino Rulli needs to pursue. We know he's good: he produced "The Last Flagraiser" which won an Emmy, among other honors. I think Lino could put together an outstanding documentary tying the two events together, as JPII was very influential in bringing down communism in Germany.

Maybe, just maybe, JPII brought down bin Laden as well.
