The Chicago Cubs were the best team in baseball – almost a century ago. They won a record 116 games in 1906, and back-to-back World Series titles in 1907 and 1908. Fast- forward to 2006, and the “Cubbies” are still waiting for another championship win. But despite the longest dry spell between world championships in all of professional sports, the Cubs are perennially in the top ten in league attendance.

WAIT ‘TIL NEXT YEAR: THE SAGA OF THE CHICAGO CUBS chronicles the lives of die-hard Cubs fans, and the ultimate devotion they show their beloved team. The documentary captures the energy and optimism of opening day from the fans’ perspective, following several fans over the course of the season as they root on their team. The “Sports of the 20th Century” documentary premieres TUESDAY, SEPT. 26 at 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Documentary Film makers have been good to baseball. HBO bigwigs love the game and have had quite a few really good ones. This is one of the best.

I didn’t have the chance to watch this documentary beacause we don’t have HBO in my country.

I see people asking where they can buy a copy, but no answer. Can this be purchased? If so, how?

gocubs on November 30th, 2006 at 1:28 pm 

Since it is new, I don’t think it can be purchased on DVD yet. When it can, I’ll be the first in line!

Just finished my third book on the Cubs. Title? “The Chicago Cubs and The Curse of the Goat>” Should be out by Feb. and I hope all Cub fans follow the advice at the end because before I die (I’m 82) I would like to go to a Cubs World Series and see them win.

[…] captures the abiding essence of what it is to be a Cubs fan (lovingly visualized in a plucky  documentary by that very title), but it also suggests a way of drawing sustenance from  a hopeless-seeming […]
