in the bar, I absolutely loved it! As Pedro Martinez said what's even bigger than winning the ring was BEATING the evil empire.
That being said, every Red Sox fan should see this. It fills a need to document what was simply one of the greatest sports dramas ever witnessed.
If I had my druthers, I'd kind of like to see something spanning the whole 7 games. I think it would set the stage a bit better overall.
And you know what else-why doesn't Damon's grand slam in game 7 get more play? That was the single greatest moment for me. Game 7 was a bit anti-climactic, but you didn't know that in the 2nd inning. Does anyone remember that the Yanks brought in a new pitcher and Damon hit the FIRST PITCH out? Sweet, sweet justice that was.
The big challenge after such an amazing occurrence is to come up with a chronicle that fully embodies the excitement of that time. ESPN's 30 for 30 managed to hit a grand slam with its story "Four Days in October". Hosted by Grantland editor Bill Simmons and comedian Lenny Clarke (both long time Sox sufferers), "Four Days..." manages to capture the abject gloom following the horrifying Game 3 loss and the incredible giddiness as the comeback progresses and becomes reality. It feels just like fans excitedly discussing each game the following day at the water cooler: Dave Roberts crafty base-running in Game 4 that led to the tying run that led to David Ortiz' series-altering game-winning home run in Game 4; the comeback and luckiest ground-rule double in history followed by more Ortiz heroics in Game 5; Curt Schilling's courage and A-Rod's childishness in Game 6; and the most nail-biting 7-run victory ever in Game 7. "Four Days In October" has it all.
I have watched this particular episode, in its entirety, at least a half-dozen times. It hasn't gotten old yet.
