"Great show. I really enjoy the production values, but most importantly you can really see that Dhani Jones absolutely loves what he is doing. Whether he is training in the local sport, eating the local cuisine, getting beat up, gasping for air cause he sucks at a sport, or visiting a landmark of cultural significance, he shows a sense of humor along with a but of competitive edge. I also like how he gets drunk in a couple of episodes. Plus as a man, I can take a few fashion cues from Dhani. This guy is pretty stylish. More so than Bourdain and Zimmeran. If Dhani needed to improve on something it would be his voice overs. They need to sound more natural and less scripted. But thats a nitpick. And at $19 for a whole season, you can't beat it. I wish Travel would put out blu rays as I know this show rocks in hidef!!! There's more countries and sports to tackle so I am definitely lookin forward to season 2. If you watch this I'm sure you'll agree."
From one San Diegan to another: GREAT SHOW!

"Dhani Jones really makes this program. Great personality, sense of humor and a natural in front of the camera. Locations are interesting with a novel approach to learning about other locations from a sports angle. Dhani completely throws himself into each cultural experience. I especially got a kick out of the extra challenges he faced, good-naturedly, in the Cambodia episode. This man has a whole other career waiting for him once he leaves football. I predict we'll be seeing a lot more of him in the future.
Interesting locales, challenges, beautiful photography and a host who feels like a best friend--how can you go wrong? Highly recommended!!
