As we sit at home, curtains drawn, cigarettes and beer cans strewn about, shaking violently in the corner awaiting the release of the Red Sox playoffs DVDs [alright, that may just be me], mlb.com is offering a little something to whet the appetite. From 0-3 to History is a downloadable, one-hour documentary of the 2004 ALCS, so you can relive it all: A-Rod’s slappy-slap, Roberts’ life-extending steal, the bloody sock, Ortiz’ back-to-back heroics, “Damon Comes Alive,” the Bellhorn homers, “Who’s Your Daddy,” the Saturday Night Massacre, armed troops on the field, Lowe’s last stand, and did we mention A-Rod’s slappy-slap? ‘Cause that was funny. Heh.
Anyway, you can download this documentary — and any of the ALCS or World Series games — here. I’ve never done so myself, so I can’t speak to the quality, but there is a trailer you can view before purchasing. Cost of the one-hour film is $9.95. Each order comes with a certificate redeemable for a free backrub from Tim McCarver.
Also, do check out the Trot Nixon Show archives at espn.com. Lots of good stuff there.
