“It’s not about winning. It’s about how the game was played.” The 2001 World Series.
I remember every game of the 2001 World Series. I can remember what it was all about and how passionate I was about wanting the New York Yankees to win. And I can remember how sad I was that they lost. It wasn’t that I wanted Arizona to lose. It’s just that the people of New York had been through so much after September 11th, and I wanted this for them. Actually, for all of us, well, maybe not the Arizona fans ) but you know what I mean. One of my fellow bloggers put a bug in my ear about this movie a few weeks ago and I couldn’t wait to see it myself. And he was right ~ it’s a keeper! It was produced in 2004 in association with MLB Productions and yet I don’t remember hearing anything about it before. Something worthwhile sometimes takes time to get around, and this is one of those worthwhile things. But a word of caution, better grab a kleenex. It was emotional and at one point I found myself sobbing! Maybe it’s because the day I watched it was also my granddaughter’s first birthday and I was feeling a little emotional anyhow. Whatever. I’m just saying. If you still have some gifts to buy you might consider this ~ even for non-baseball fans. Really, it’s that good.
Note: For me “Nine Innings From Ground Zero” is to September 11th, what “It’s A Wonderful Life” is to Christmas. It could become an annual thing. GFBB
