    And of course it starts with the Sox winning the series on Fisk's home run.

    It's amazing how the media narrative still has Boston winning the 1975 World Series three games to four.

    They can show the Fisk homer all they want. The BRM got the ring.

    I love Bill Lee at the end talking about the grand slam he almost hit and they showed the video of Geronimo catching it 10 feet in front of the warning track.

    Anyone know of a similar documentary on line told from the Reds perspective?

    Come now.

    We are in "Fly over country". Our perspective means nothing especially when measured against the Red Sox.

    I can't recall the name of it, but one of the most frustratingly bad sports books I've ever read was about the entire '75 season and just reaked of Sox.
    (Referring to Jack Hannahan signing with a Korean team)
    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    I think outside of Boston, the BRM has gotten enough credit to say everyone but Beaneaters get it.
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em
