'Four Days In October' Preview: The Curt Schilling Clip

Consider this your reminder you watch ESPN's newest 30 for 30 documentary, "Four Days in October." It premiers Tuesday (that's TONIGHT! Unless you're reading this on Wednesday, in which case you missed it) on ESPN, at 8 p.m. ET.

Anyone else getting worried it may have too much Bill Simmons?

The hour-long documentary is produced by MLB and takes a "real-time" look at the 2004 ALCS and the Red Sox comeback.

Our focus with this film was to take fans back in time and place them in the bubble that was October 17th to Oct. 20th in an effort to capture the day-by-day transformation of an entire franchise and its hardcore fan base known as "Red Sox Nation."

In the midst of a maelstrom that included Big Papi, bloody socks and a band of self- proclaimed "Idiots," these "Four Days In October" wiped away 86 years of curses, frustration and near-misses -- and it was done in a way that not even Hollywood would have been able to script.
