The biggest difference I've found between the 2007 World Series DVD and the 2004 World Series DVD is that the 2007 DVD is more evenly balanced between Red Sox coverage and Rockies Coverage. The 2004 World Series DVD spent maybe two or three minutes on the Cardinals whereas the 2007 version spends much more time on the Rockies, the series they won and the players on their team.
There is less 'regular season' footage in the 2007 edition and by less I mean virtually none. I have to say I enjoyed the 2004 edition where the DVD started from spring training, went thru the trade deadline (Remember Nomar?) and then of course the 'fight' between A-Rod and Varitek. With all due respect to the 2007 season, I don't think there were as many polarizing events as there were in 2004.
Another difference, which was nicely done, was the change in narrators. The 2004 DVD was narrated by Dennis Leary, the 2007 DVD was narrated by Matt Damon. I'm not sure why a switch in narrators was done, but each of these narrators are passionate Red Sox fans.
Overall, I would have prefered to see more Red Sox footage/coverage, but how can you blame MLB for including more Rockies footage after the final six weeks that they had. For a franchise that is less than 20 years old, the Rockies fans should enjoy this 2007 World Series DVD.
Well, I am indeed Norwegian, and I have been a fan of baseball and the Red Sox since I saw Cheers on tv back in the 80's. Later I visited Florida, but before expansion, so I "only" saw some spring training there. After that I got me a girlfriend from Denver Colorado, and I became a big fan of the Colorado Rockies, and the city of Denver as well. But I would never replace the Red Sox, so I told myself, "hey, you live in a country where you never get to see baseball, you're allowed to have two favorite teams, right?" So I said, "I'll have a favorite AL team and a favorite NL team". And that worked pretty good for nearly 10 years. Sure, the Rockies kept testing my patience (I have seen them at Coors Field nearly 20 times without whitnessing a victory!) and the Red Sox would always frustrate you, but then came 2004 and what a joy. In the meantime I lost my one source of baseball on tv again, so last year was the usual, see some games on the computer, read about it on the internet etc. But when the Rockies got their surge, I was so exited!
So exited in fact, that I failed to notice one thing...
They met my other favorite team in the World Series!
I am sad the Rockies didn't go all the way, but all the same, what a season! And what a story! And my dear Red Sox winning it all again, I was so happy... So... Confused!
But all that aside, this DVD is a great retelling of that season, that I largely missed, so for me this is bliss. Now that I have NASN on my broadband cable, I can once again watch baseball as much as I like, but this DVD is something special to me all the same.
I reccomend it, wether you love the Rox, the Sox, ballgames or just like hearing about a thrilling piece and moment of sports history!
