Four Days in October
Four Days in October documents the Boston Red Sox comeback from three games down against the New York Yankees in the ALCS en route to their first World Series in 86 years. Its hard to get behind this film when their city has had so much success with their basketball, football, and hockey teams. To make matters worse, this film celebrates a long haired, dirty squad of cheaters (David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez subsequently tested positive for illegal performance enhancers). Through footage from the games and interviews with whiny quasi celebrity Sox fans, braggart players, and footage of obnoxious fans, this documentary made me nauseous. Boston fans should move to Cleveland so they can experience what real sports pain is like.
