Cocaine, Murder, and Fútbol: Watch The Two Escobars on ESPN Tonight
|Andres Escobar, murdered for a World Cup mistake.|
Even our mom has started watching ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary series, which has made the couch in front of the TV set a far less soul-sucking place to spend some time. Which is why we're dropping another reminder to watch The Two Escobars tonight at 9.
The work of directing brothers Jeff and Michael Zimbalist, the film tells the story of Colombia's narco-fútbol, in which the country's soccer teams were funded by filthy-rich cocaine kings. The title refers to drug lord Pablo Escobar -- international fugitive and soccer fanatic -- and Colombia team captain Andrés Escobar, killed for a World Cup mistake.
Because every story involving cocaine trafficking is, by extension, a Miami story.
