Al Yellon's appearance on Alex Gibney's round table discussion with Cubs fans on "Catching Hell" DVD


When Alex Gibney's "Catching Hell" premiered last year in September, Al Yellon said he took part in a round table discussion that Alex Gibney conducted. The discussion didn't make the cut in the ESPN premiere. However, the discussion is on the DVD as a bonus feature.

As much as I'd like to put the footage up for everyone to watch, I can't, because the DVD is copyright protected. However, there's a take on Al speaking in response to a question by Gibney asking if the Cubs fans will still be "passionate" about their team when (not "if") the Cubs win the World Series: "Will it become less important?" Al's respone was:

"Yes." (Cubs fans will still be just as passionate for their team)

Al explained how things will be different: "But the difference will be, all of this crap will be forgiven. Just once I want to know how it feels to be those fans in those stands that we see every year in October rooting for whoever wins a World Series. I want to be that person. I want to know how that feels."

The discussion sequence is four and a half minutes in length and Al's part isn't until the final 30 seconds of the sequence for those of you planning on watching the DVD.
