September Edition's Segments:
· Von Miller - Coming off a Super Bowl MVP season, Von Miller held out for the most lucrative contract ever given to an NFL player who was not a quarterback. Now the Denver Broncos linebacker is out to prove he is worth the hype and the heaps of cash.
· Out of Africa - In the never-ending hunt for talent, the world's soccer industry has fueled a shadowy business in Africa in which "agents" promise young, talented boys a new life and sports riches. But few make it to the big leagues, while many suffer disappointment and some suffer worse, much worse. To watch and share more about Out of Africa, go to: http://s.sho.com/2bRbiS0.
· Full Throttle - The last time a Ford raced competitively at Le Mans, the U.S. was putting a man on the Moon. So the American car company's attempt to build a car and win the 2016 race was met with great skepticism. The end result could turn out to be the motorsports story of the year.
