On the day that Steven Jackson and the St. Louis Rams collected their second win in three preseason games, No. 39 released the first episode of "In the Life With Steven Jackson."
Steven announced the launch of the four-part documentary on his Twitter account:
http://inthelife.sj39.com I’m getting ready to walk n locker room. Enjoy the 1st installment, time 4 me to work.
So far, Episode 1 — entitled, "Home" — has gotten extremely positive reviews from fans on a number of forums and on Twitter as well. One of the best was from @TLangland:
TLangland @sj39 The first installment was great, really enjoyed seeing an insight into your life. Never seen an athlete do something like this.
You can watch Episode 1 and the coming three episodes at http://inthelife.sj39.com.
A series description is available on the page where the episodes are available:
Two years removed from the Pro Bowl, running back Steven Jackson entered the offseason of 2009 with one goal: to get into the best shape of his career.
While the four webisodes of “In the Life With Steven Jackson” chronicle Steven’s training over the past summer, each one also delves into a different aspect of who he is on and off the field. As a whole, the series provides an unprecedented look into the life of one of the most talented, mature and thoughtful athletes in the NFL.
Steven was actually praised by USA Today in a feature article on Thursday for staying ahead of the curve technologically.
The tech savvy Jackson uses his Twitter account to engage fans and debuts a four-part, web-based series Aug. 27 "In the Life with Steven Jackson," tracking his offseason training.
Forgotten man? Jackson ‘as good as anybody in the league’ (USA Today, Aug. 27, 2009)
Great episode!!! I agree with Langland, I’ve never seen an athlete do this, but it worked out very well. It’s amazing to get a look into the life of the man we see on TV every Sunday
Ever since I attended training camp and then the Jets preseason game in which I received a game worn autographed hat, #39 will forever live in my eyes as a true hero to the game. I enjoyed this episode in which other things like his GPA from high school were revealed. I look forward to episode 2
very cool, can’t wait to see the rest. Love the idea and the delivery of it.
Here’s hoping SJ has a killer year.
by the way…love the giant last super painting
