I may be incorrect here .The Jim Thorpe qouted herein as a superman was an incredible athlete.He won Decathlon/played American sports.His life story was made into a film starring Burt Lancaster.He was possibly part Red Indian heritage.No known date of birth.
Sad to say he died almost penniless.I doubt if he was a commentator .
Hi Joe. You're probably right and I am probably talking about the wrong Thorpe. This one sounds quite a super guy, thanks for the correction.
