    "I knew they weren't testing for LSD, so I just fried every weekend"-Todd Marinovich


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Good documentary. I couldn't bring myself to feel sorry for the guy. Even if your dad pushes you growing up I can't feel sorry for a guy who had all of the ability and promise in the world and threw it away.

    Yah, I was glad to see he still had a relationship with his dad. It would have been easy for him to blame everything on his Dad, and he didn't. Maybe he wasn't asking for anyone to feel sorry for him, but that doesn't mean as a viewer you don't have the overwhelming of feeling of "what an absolute waste."

    I loved it. My dad told me about him as a kid and it was interesting to see the full story.

    Re: Todd Marinovich / Marinovich Project

    I really enjoyed it. Though I remember watching him play, I was not aware of the whole scenario. For people to say that since he had a great deal with the free education and football at Southern Cal that you could "never feel sorry for him" is so in humane. Its as if the $'s the athlestes are paid is a free ticket to ridicule them. People act like these kids are terrible people if they can't handle the spotlight at an early age. I can't imagine what that intense publicity is like.

    I really felt for Todd in this documentary knowing that he wasn't blaming anybody for his failures, he just wanted to be seen as a human and not a robot. Hopefully he continues on the path he's on and enjoys his life.
