Exactly, that's what their franchise thrives on. Proving my point that the Cubs are not Major League Baseball, they're a dog and pony show.

The last 15 mins of the show was Cubbie loving propaganda. The rest of it I did enjoy. Obviously, it was fun to watch, and it had good perspectives...
I found Brennaman's comments about his encounter with Beckett quite interesting. I wonder if he shared what he was told with anyone else back then, or brings it up only in hindsight today?

Steve Stone's comments were also intriguing. Game Day Steve Stone clearly made it sound like he thought Moises Alou could have caught the ball, while Current Day Steve Stone makes snide comments about the lack of gold gloves on the Alou mantle, and talks more like he doesn't think Alou could have caught that ball. Following the party line, Steve?

Another thing Current Day Stone said was that the Cubs still play mostly days games, so the players they should be after are for guys that aren't enjoying the nightlife too much. I wonder if he had anyone in particular in mind when he said that.

I'm sure in two years, when there's a 10th anniversary of a Chicago team that actually won something, CSN will put up a comparable 90 minute special.

Jdm, thanks for the response. I see now that CSN is going to show this again, so I'm set to record it. Sounds like quite the laugher!

Been seeing that play so much recently that I have come to think Alou would have made the catch. Bartman's hand was just a foot or so over his glove. The umpire had signaled by pointing that the ball was in the stands, but it "came back" into play because of side spin on the way down.

Certainly worthy of a 10 year anniversary celebration. Maybe it oughtta be a National Day of Mourning.

The 30 for 30 ESPN did used digital technology to remove all of the fans out of the seats and it appeared that Alou would have caught the ball.

I still have my doubts that it was a for sure catch though. It could have hit off the heel of his glove, his glove could have bumped into some fans knocking the ball loose, or he could have closed his glove too early. It's a tough play and you can never assume the catch will be made.

I tried to search for the WSI thread from that game but couldn't find it.

I give Alou about a 1 in 5 chance that he could have made that catch. Those seats are higher than they look. If he made that catch, he should have been the new "thrill of victory".

My favorite was Kilroy's "this is better than sex" post.

With all these Cubs fans wanting to tar and feather this fan, don't they sound like hypocrites since they are the same people who stereotyped us after the Ligue and Dybas incidents?

I liked this quote by Viva Magglio so much, I wanted to highlight it and bring attention to it all these years later, mainly because I occasionally still have to hear crap about the Ligues.
