EDITOR'S NOTE Ten years ago Monday, fans came as close to seeing the Cubs in the World Series as they'd been in six decades. Then the eighth inning of Game 6 in the National League Championship Series happened, setting off a catastrophic chapter in Chicago sports history. Why relive the Bartman game?
