NONE WAS THE STORY OF MORE WOE, THAN OF BOSTON, AND THEIR BAMBINO
2 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

As a Cubs fan, my sympathy goes out to red sox fans. The documentary is the history of eighty years of Boston teams getting within reach of the promised land only to be struck down. It tells the tale of eighty years of grief, missed chances, and chokes. From Bucky "F...ing" Dent to Bill Buckner, to their battles with the Evil Empire in Yankee pinstripes and finally how the specter of Babe Ruth's trade hovering over the team affects them to this day. God may not hate the Red Sox, but he sure as hell likes the Yankees more.

In all of the suffering and despair though, what comes through is not the misery of losing but the love and hope of people for a team who still every year gives them reason to believe.
