Cubs Forever: Celebrating 60 Years of WGN and the Chicago Cubs (2008)
*** (out of 4)
Fun documentary covering the history of WGN and their sixty years of showing Chicago Cubs baseball games. Just about every famous moment that took place on WGN is shown here and we also get comments from the players, announcers, fans and even umpire assistants. Overall I think this thing could have been better made and followed a better path in telling its story but the documentary remains entertaining as a history lesson. We get to see famous home runs, no-hitters, the first night game at the historic stadium and just about everything else in between. Ron Santo, Mark Grace, Greg Maddux, Sammy Sosa, Ernie Banks are just a few of the names who throw in comments. I really wish they had shown more of the games from the early era of the station but for the most part they look at the past thirty years.
