Editorial Reviews

Fantasy sports is an estimated $4 billion dollar industry that boasts over 30 million participants and a league for almost every sport imaginable. But for all this success, the story of the game's inception is little known. The modern fantasy leagues can be traced back to a group of writers and academics who met at La Rotisserie Francaise in New York City to form a baseball league of their own: The Rotisserie League. The game quickly grew in popularity, and with the growing use and attractiveness of the internet, the "Founding Fathers" never foresaw how their creation would take off and ultimately leave them behind. Innovative filmmakers Adam Kurland and Lucas Jansen chronicle the early development and ultimate explosion of Rotisserie Baseball, and shine a light on its mostly unnoticed innovators.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Controversy be gone! This superlative film should put an end to all the arguments surrounding the advent of Fantasy Sports and we learn quickly that it took the mind of an admitted "serial obsessive" to make it come to fruition. Dan Okrent is the whimsical, acknowledged vanguard of what was then called Rotisserie Baseball and in this ESPN 30 for 30 special, we see not only His Majesty Okrent but the other "losers" along side of him as the history of "Roto-Baseball" is presented. This is an amazingly fun film, fraught with the kind of good natured cynicism that begat this monolithic industry along with a true insight into how friendships expand and how eternal memories are made.

Many of the original players are interviewed here and we get a full and fun understanding of how all this started...from Okrent's opening on how he got this idea after "missing" baseball in the winter of 1979 and, with seeming Divine Providence, presenting it to a bunch of baseball crazy pals who also opine on the origins. Of course, the others have a different recollection of how it started "I'm sure Dan will tell you that he came to the table at La Rotisserie (the restaurant where they all met for periodic lunches that's now defunct) with this Immaculate Conception and that it sprang forth from his rib...I don't remember it that way" says Lee Eisenberg, who nonetheless rolls right into the crazy, self deprecating jargon that is in abundance in this film, while indirectly acknowledging Okrent's creation.

We meet the first season's winners, the GethersWag Goners, where Peter Gethers and Glen Waggoner get "damn lucky" by drafting a nondescript relief pitcher of the Mets (Neil Allen) who goes on to have a career season, propelling them to the top of the new league.

It's no secret that fantasy sports are huge and are not showing any signs of stopping. `Silly Little Game' shows how it all started, definitely a must-watch for anyone who has played fantasy sports or baseball stat-freaks.
