Back in the day, everyone had to have Bo Jackson sneakers.


A Tribe Called Quest's Phife Dog rapped in “Scenario”: Bo this and Bo knows that but Bo don’t know jack ’cause Bo can’t rap. Well, it turns out Bo not only knows baseball, football and tennis but he also knows money.


In a recent Yahoo! Sports article, we learn that people who knew the Heisman Trophy winner back in the day, when he was a bank teller, wouldn’t be surprised he's now an owner and director of the 2009 Burr Ridge Bank & Trust in Chicago.


Although he’s not involved in the bank’s day-to-day activities, the iconic athlete says, "We are one of the top small community banks in the country right now.… It's because we are treating people like people want to be treated when they come to the bank."
