A Cubs programming note

The MLB network likes to taunt me. They e-mail me press releases about upcoming programs related to the Cubs (because of Just One Bad Century), so I can pass it along to Cub nation. This week there's another program that I'd like to watch, but can't (because my cable provider doesn't offer MLB network)...

"Steve Bartman obstructing with Chicago Cubs outfielder Moises Alou’s attempt to catch a foul ball during Game Six of the 2003 NLCS will be featured in a new episode of MLB Network Countdown: Fan Moments on Saturday, December 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET. The Bartman incident will be ranked alongside other famous fan moments, including:
- ‘Disco Demolition Night,’ when fans brought their disco records to be blown up at Chicago’s Comiskey Park during a doubleheader in 1979,
- and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Rick Monday grabbing the American flag away from would-be flag-burners"

Bartman, Steve Dahl, and Rick Monday, all in one show. Now that would be worth watching. By the way, MLB network, you know that Rick Monday wasn't on the Dodgers when he saved that flag, don't you?
