Yes, there is another documentary about the Cubs on the MLB Network tonight. Doing out best not to piss off the ubiquitous Chris Dunn too much, but there are simply too many Chicagoans who read these pages who'd likely love to know about this (and others with hearts and souls), here are the details, along with a few passages from an article on it.
The documentary, Joy in Wrigleyville, airs tonight (Thursday) on the MLB Network at 5 PM Los Angeles Time. Repeated at 8 PM and then 11 PM. It's narrated by John Cusack, who as the article notes, attended 60 Cubs games this past season.
This isn't just another garden-variety documentary about a team winning a championship. In fact, no players were interviewed. "Joy in Wrigleyville" is all about Cubs fans -- those who celebrated the team's fortunes with friends and family in present times, and those who viewed the Fall Classic as a chance to reflect and remember loved ones who had passed on and couldn't revel in this particular feat.
