A good study in scapegoating and group behavior. The fact that pitchers get tired in the 8th and 9th innings of a baseball game gives way to superstition.

Fascinating documentary of both the Red Sox World Series Bill Buckner play and the Cubs NLCS Steve Bartman play. Very well done; enjoyable even if not a baseball fan.
