The night Prayer for a Perfect Season premiered on HBO, I sat in a banquet hall watching it with the people who had the most personally invested in it.
The documentary was moving, but as it portrayed the fading vestiges of a golden era, the reactions of the St. Patrick High School community while watching it were far more so.
I watched ESPNÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Fab 5 Documentary the night before I left for vacation and very much enjoyed it, lamenting the fact that I wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have time to weigh in on Jalen RoseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s comments about Duke. Considering the instant-gratification Twitter-borne sports culture we live in, I assumed that by the time I got back a week later, it would be a non-issue.
It was to my surprise when I got back that it was even more a topic than it had been before I left. I still need a late pass, since the approaching baseball season has sucked up a lot of my time since then, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still on my mind.
