      "What About Bob" doesn't make your list of movies with a character named Bob?

      @Peter Kiz Think the 4th outlier is Moses Malone 81-82. Kareem scored only(!) 29.98 pts/game.

      Jon, I hear you loud and clear. I shall name my first born son Bob. I shall brutally drive him into professional sports. He will know he has a duty and destiny to uphold. I will not let you down Jon.

          46:33 Here is a Japanese advertising flyer for the fight "Bob" took part in: ボブ (Bob) appears halfway down the page, affiliated with Yama Gym and right next to Yoichi Ozawa (小澤陽一). There's even a phone number and e-mail address and I have half a mind to call them up and ask about this Bob. There are so few left; we need to know!

            Absolutely no one:
            Youtube: Here, watch a 2 hour documentary about athletes some of whom aren't even at the top of their sport, all of them named Bob.

              I came back because I just realised this video's fatal flaw. You don't have and entire section devoted to Bob Uecker. Big mistake.

                    With Bol Bol entering the 2019 draft, there will be more NBA players named Bol than Bob

                        If we're feeling silly, we could count esports, in which case Tekken 6's OP Bob deserves a shout-out

                              I live in Toledo and I 100% support Bob Hamelin's decision of retiring because he was done living in Toledo, lmao.

                                I’ve put off watching this because it’s long and not had time, it’s absolutely fascinating. Just a shame a cant talk to anyone about it cause they won’t understand.
                                Appreciate your work :D

                                    A Bob stat I just found that you might be interested in: In 1980, 1981, and 1982 three of the top ten career points leaders among active players were all named Bob in the NBA: Bob Lanier, Bob McAdoo, and Bob Dandridge. A reign of terror for Bobs in the late 70s and early 80s of basketball. Dandridge retired in 1982, though. I'm going through all seasons to see career leaders and I doubt I'll find such a dominant collective of Bobs in the NBA.

                                        Would Bo Jackson have a chance at the world record as some claim that he jumped 40 feet once when running away from a pastor after Bo killed one of his pigs with rocks?

                                                          As irrelevant and useless as this information will ever have any effect on my life, I cannot express enough how much I truly enjoyed and appreciate the details and dedication to such an unimportant reference in sports. This is without a doubt one of the most underrated YouTube channels. I enjoy every series you guys produce and when it comes to chart party, it is just mind-boggling at how interesting the most meaningless aspects of sports can be. I've watched every single video SB nation has released and I owe it to you guys to go back and click the like button for all of them. Keep up the great work which I know you guys have so much fun creating.
