There are certain sports figures that someone can say their first name and you know exactly who they are talking about: Kobe. Cam. Peyton, just to name a few.
Bo Jackson is one of those famous enough to be known by just one name, but for the former Auburn running back and Heisman Trophy winner, there is a certain age at which you can call him by just Bo.

“Hey, that’s Mr. Jackson. If you’re under 30, you can’t call me Bo,” Jackson said to fans at the Regions Tradition Pro-Am on Wednesday.
Considering he is one of the greatest athletes, and the great shape that he is still in at the age of 54, it would probably be smart for those that haven’t reached their fourth decade to listen.
