And if the Yankees had won the World Series...
23 September 2004 | by (The Rincon Mesa, Arizona) – See all my reviews

...could the renewed strength and spirit that all New Yorkers felt possibly have gone even higher? It's doubtful. The city had already reached a zenith when the Yankees took all three home games during the series. What had started as continued mourning at the beginning of the series did indeed change to hope and cheering and even happiness for the people of New York. It was just what they needed. Just what the doctor ordered.

I loved the advice Derek Jeter had for George W. who was to throw out the first pitch for their home game... You can't stand in front of the mound... they'll boo you. And don't bounce it in... or they'll boo you. Left Dubba feeling a little insecure, but he did just fine with the pitch, after all.

And I didn't know that one of the umpires was really a secret-service agent. Not during the game, of course, just during the opening pitch.

This documentary is just short enough to have kept me interested. It flashes into new subjects quickly and tries to give a piece of information about everything. The world series is background for everything else presented. It contains no mushiness, no pro-America propaganda, not even any anti-terrorist themes... it just shows us how that world series was able to change the feelings of us all. To help us mend.
