One of the most unforgettable moments in Chicago Cubs lore might not matter as much now that the Cubs finally won a modern-day World Series. But who could forget Steve Bartman who tipped the ball away from outfielder Moises Alou in game six of the 2003 NLCS, and the ensuing mayhem.

A well done documentary

A good study in scapegoating and group behavior. The fact that pitchers get tired in the 8th and 9th innings of a baseball game gives way to superstition.
