Mathematically Alive

I received the following in an email this morning about a documentary that highlights a Mets fans journey through the 2006 season and playoffs called Mathematically Alive. It looks kind of interesting but then I thought it's a good thing they didn't do a documentary of fans through the 2007 season that would be called A New York Choke-job Massacre.

Here's the info if you're interested:

Mathematically Alive - A Story of Fandom

Joseph Coburn & Katherine Foronjy
This engaging documentary is for all New York Mets fans and for anyone who is a devoted fan of a sports team. Directors Coburn and Foronjy reveal the stories of a spectrum of Mets devotees and take us on their roller coaster ride of emotion through the 2006 playoffs.

Mathematically Alive explores why Sports are such an integral part of American culture. What the affects are of following a team and, more importantly, why fans continue to invest so much emotion, time, and money into their team. They are the stories of any fan in America. For some it's an escape from reality, for others it forms their identity. Their fanaticism, not too far off from your own or someone you know, makes for a fascinating window into an often unexamined part of everyday life - Sport fandom.

Myself and possibly two other bloggers would like to make the trip to New Brunswick to see the movie. I live in Jersey, it's not too much of a stretch for me LOL. Are you guys going? Let me know - maybe we can meet for dinner or something if you do.
