CHICAGO — The story of a young team conquering a 108-year curse, not to mention the seriously epic Game 7, may have the makings of something out of Hollywood, but a movie documenting the very real drama is already premiering in Chicago tonight, and will be available for the Cubs fans who lived through it very soon.
As the trailer above shows, the MLB-produced documentary narrated by Vince Vaughn captures the dramatic scenes both on the field and behind-the-scenes as the Cubs went from the postseason on to ultimately win the seven-game World Series. It’s a documentary that captures the “saga of two cities that made baseball’s Fall Classic somehow bigger than usual,” Vaughn says in the trailer.
And of course it includes the priceless exchange between Rizzo and Ross caught during Game 7, when Rizzo captured how all Cubs fans were feeling with the perfect Anchorman reference: “I’m in a glass case of emotions.”
The glass case will open when the documentary premieres Tuesday night at the Lyric Opera House in Chicago, and will be available for fans on DVD on December 6.
