"HBO Goes to Bat for Red Sox Mini"

So says the headline in Variety.

HBO Films and HBO Sports will give miniseries treatment to the Stephen King/Stewart O'Nan book "Faithful: Two Diehard Boston Red Sox Fans Chronicle the Historic 2004 Season."

Bill Diamond has been set to write the mini, which will be broken down to six hourlong episodes that will dramatize how the team ended its 86-year drought and won the 2004 World Series.

The mini will dramatize the build-up to the playoffs with storylines told from the eyes of fans, players and the front office, led by baby-faced general manager Theo Epstein, which assembled the championship team.

Because we just haven't heard enough about the 2004 Red Sox yet. I'm still waiting for the miniseries about the Marlins World Series triumph in 2003. It will be called "Those Guys Won? Really? How?"

Gary Thorne says you'll love the scene where Doug Mirabelli uses a can of Krylon to paint Curt Schilling's sock.

I have the book the miniseries will be based on, along with a few others about '04 (plus a watch, a couple DVDs, a T-shirt, a framed team picture, a framed Boston Globe front page, etc., etc.) That book's the only one I haven't been able to get through--I basically stopped a couple sentences in when O'Nan admitted he grew up a Pirates fan, then I gave up altogether after leafing through and seeing that the book seemed to have been put together with the care of a hastily-scribbled bank robbery note. Cha-ching.

Just think what would be produced after a Cubs World Series win.

I'll take, "Things I Won't Be Watching" for 800, Alex.
