I'm from Iowa. At age 21 I've attended 102 Cubs games through the 2010 season. Every mile traveled to get to these Cubs games was worth it, and that's a lot of miles!

Don't know if anyone remembers this clip a couple years ago after the final Cubs home game of 2011. It's quite a moving piece. It's how our ballpark should be remembered.

ESPN 30 for 30 series moves air date of "Catching Hell" to 2011

I don't know why, but ESPN has moved the air date of "Steve Bartman: Catching Hell" to 2011. I contacted ESPN via phone and the guy I talked to didn't give me any answers as to why it was moved or anything. I felt like I knew more than he did to be honest. But the guy took my information down so a higher ranking ESPN representative can follow-up with me via e-mail with some answers... yeah right. When? Here's the exerpt from this site that highlights this title: Replaces Alex Gibney's Catching Hell, which will be aired in 2011.

ESPN 30 for 30 series to air "Steve Bartman: Catching Hell" on Tue Oct 26.

This should be an interesting watch on October 26th. I know it's something that we don't like to talk about, but I'm interested to see what kind of angle Alex Gibney took to dabble upon this topic and create a documentary about it. Here's the movie description: With five outs remaining in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS, a foul ball descended from the cold Chicago sky, destined for the glove of left fielder Moises Alou. But it was not meant to be, as one inconspicuous hand reached down from the left field stands at Wrigley Field and seized the potential out. That hand belonged to Cubs fan Steve Bartman, and many believed that he snatched away Chicago’s chance of advancing to the World Series. Even though Bartman was one of many who reached for the ball, and even though Cubs shortstop Alex Gonzalez let a sure inning-ending double-play ball go through his legs later in the same inning, and combined with the fact that the Game 6 victory by the Marlins only tied the series at 3-3, Bartman still became the most hated man in Chicago. Bartman attempted a public appeal, but his fate was already sealed by the Cub fans’ need for a scapegoat to explain a near-century of losing. Although Cubs Nation has since moved on to other seasons and other losses, Bartman remains ostracized from a community he lives in and a team he once loved. Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney will explore this relationship and try to answer the question, Can Steve Bartman ever forgive Chicago? http://30for30.espn.com/film/steve-bartman-catching-hell.html
