Annoying and tiresome
22 October 2004 | by SpeechProfSee all my reviews

Well, as a documentary it's all right, but most of the people in it annoyed the hell out of me. It takes on the theme that the Yankees "deserved" to win the World Series because of September 11th, when it all actuality Arizona was the better team. It's another documentary of New Yorkers wanting to claim September 11th as "their own." What the filmmaker and most people involved need to realize is that Sept. 11th was an attack on America, not just New York (apparently the Pentagon and Pennsylvania crashes aren't as important). Don't get me wrong, it's not that I'm not sympathetic, it's just that if anyone deserved to win this World Series, it was Arizona because their team was better.
