Silly little game (51 min.): In 1980, a group of writers, academics, and baseball fans met in New York City and created a new game: Rotisserie Baseball. The idea was simple: create an imaginary baseball team with real baseball players and follow the statistics. The game quickly grew in popularity, eventually exploding into a multi-billion dollar industry and revolutionizing the way fans watch and participate in sports. The founding fathers never foresaw how their creation would take off and ultimately leave them behind
Run Ricky run (51 min.): Ricky Williams does not conform to America's definition of the modern athlete. In 2004, with rumors of another positive marijuana test looming, the Miami Dolphins running back traded adulation and a mansion in South Florida for anonymity and a $7 a night tent in Australia. His decision created a media frenzy that dismantled his reputation and branded him as America's Pothead. But while most in the media thought Williams was ruining his life by leaving football, Ricky thought he was saving it. Through personal footage recorded with Williams during his time away from football and beyond, filmmakers Sean Pamphilon and Royce Toni take a fresh look at a player who had become a media punching bag and has since redeemed himself as a father and a teammate
The 16th man (51 min.): During the apartheid era, South African teams had been banned from international competition, and its exclusion from rugby was an especially severe blow to the white population. Blacks, on the other hand, saw the national Springbok team & its colors as symbols of oppression and cheered against their home team. With the 1995 Rugby World Cup set to take place in South Africa, Mandela recognized an opportunity with the Springboks to achieve national unity through sport
