The Tenth Inning
The Tenth Inning is captivating. Ken Burns is a master storyteller. The Seattle connection is some remarkable footage of Ken Griffey, Jr. in the opening episode. Seeing Junior as he is now, one tends to forget what a graceful and fluid swing he had when he was in his prime. A-Rod was also portrayed briefly in the sequence that discusses steroid use. Chris Rock definitely lends some perspective to the issue - if there was a pill that made you better at your job, wouldn't you take it?
