    Four Days in October

    It was an ESPN 30 for 30 film that chronicled the Red Sox historic comeback from down 3-0 in 2004. I thought it was fantastic. It brought me back to 2004 and remember watching that series. I still remember thinking if the Red Sox could get to game 6 with Schilling pitching they would win that series. If you get a chance it is well worth watching.

    I think there was too much emphasis on the Red Sox and Yankees.

    I watched it last night, and it was simply phenomenal. Even though the Red Sox/Yankees stuff does get tiring, this is one film that is most definitely worth watching.

    Did they do one on the Red Sox coming back and winning the '75 series in game six? That's such a great story.

    My wife who is not much more than a casual Reds fan was glued to the TV.

    As much as ESPN likes to pimp the Sox and Yanks the film was fantastic. A legendary curse, an insurmountable deficit, a fan base who was ready for another kick in the teeth. It was just a very enjoyable hour.

    I have not had a chance to watch this one yet but the whole 30 for 30 series of documentaries has been fantastic.

    While it made me mad at the time, there is nothing better than hearing Curt Gowdy call the last out in game 7 of the '75 World Series. I thought he was going to just die right there on the air. I am so sick of the Red Sox/Yankees that I can hardly stand it. It's OK when both teams are battling for a title, but having to watch it, over and over and over, regardless of the standings is just sickening.

    Jack Buck is forever tainted in my eyes for how he called the '90 World Series. Absolutely pathetic how bad he favored the A's. What's up with the Reds and announcers?
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Re: Four Days in October

    Great documentary, but in all honesty I wish it would have been longer. I was a freshman in college, and that series is an unbelievable memory for me. Our entire dorm, for whatever reason, rallied behind that Red Sox team, and hung up posters of Dave Roberts all over the dorm. We had 20 people in a room watching those games, doing our best Manny and Big Papi impersonations, drinking Natural Light until the wee hours of the morning.

    A one hour summary of what happened over that 4 day stretch does not do that story justice, IMO.

    I agree with you about the Red Sox/Yankees also. I root for the Yankees to beat the Red Sox anytime they play now.

    The Red Sox became the frat boy/trendy fan favorites and that was enough for me to dislike them.

    I never cared for Gowdy after that World Series. He had been the Red Sox PBP guy before going full time with NBC. His bias certainly came out during that series. NBC should have not put him that position though. They should have just went with Garagiola and Kubek the entire series.

    Baseball was so much more enjoyable before the Sox rallied to win the 2004 ALCS.

    I'll take the Yankees losing any day of the week. That's a good feeling no matter who beats them.

    Re: Four Days in October

    One of my favorite memories in baseball/sports history. Kevin Millar was absolutely prophetic before game 4. "Don't let us win tonight!" Love it!

    And, I will echo other's sentiments that the entire 30 For 30 series has been wonderful. Not a bad one yet. I wish ESPN would keep the series going.
