A screen grab from "Catching Hell"

If you live in Chicago and are a Cubs fan, I'm sure you'll already be glued to your TV tonight at 7pm, watching ESPN's latest "30 for 30" documentary named "Catching Hell".

"Catching Hell", Oscar Award Winning Director's Alex Gibney's revist to the 2003 Cubs and Chicago's public enemy #1, Steve Bartman.

In reading a recent NPR article about this, it gave me even more excitment to see the film and how it exonorates poor Steve of everything that was thrown on him that fall.

Mr. Gibney's view is to show how insane the media and public opinion can get over something as small as a foul ball.

With all of the critical acclaim that "Catching Hell" has received, it will be interesting to see the rest of the fall "30 for 30" schedule on ESPN!
