With five outs remaining in Game 6 of the 2003 National League Championship Series, a foul ball descended from the cold Chicago sky. As a flurry of hands reached for the ball, it was fatefully tipped away from the outstretched glove of outfielder Moises Alou. Steve Bartman instantly became the focus of rage for long-suffering Cubs fans everywhere. Filmmaker Alex Gibney explores the phenomenon of scapegoating through the lenses of two infamous moments in sports history.

A well done documentary

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.
