DW: To be very general, briefly describe why you feel documentaries are important - why should we make documentaries? PM: I think documentaries done well ask questions people arent asking. Can they give us insight into lives we dont know about? They can help us understand, they can help us rethink things, and they can also get new ideas out there. I think documentaries are a wonderful format, but you have to have interesting documentaries, and documentaries that are asking interesting questions to broaden the way we see things. Theyre super important to expanding the way we see the world. DW: How long did it take you to direct the ‘Sports on Fire series? PM: We did it in about a year I guess, the six episodes in just under a year. DW: Describe the appeal you think this series will have for audiences, and why? PM: The sports genre is huge right now; people love sports. And the reason people love sports is because games give us a great narrative. They give us all the drama, all the rivalries, and everything else. They give us the act one, act two, act three kind of narrative where if its an exciting game, given lots of pressure in whatever the moment is, human beings are fascinated and ecstatic with that. Historically I think its really deep into key moments of the 20th century, and the 21st century, the steroid story and the one on gender testing. I think it just has a wild appeal because its both human nature and sports. Its the drama of sports and the compelling nature of history. Not to have a terrible sports metaphor, but it seems to be a bit of a slam-dunk in terms of entertainment that way. Its a wide demographic. DW: You were a big hockey fan growing up, and I know the series premiere is delving into the 1972 Summit Series, of course played at the height of the Cold War, as a hockey fan, what was it like for you to be able to work on a hockey project of that magnitude? PM: It was actually, that is a great question, because it was fantastic, and it was nostalgic, and it was a privilege. From my childhood it was kind of a bit of a dream to be able to rework the 1972 Summit Series. That series really etched itself in my imagination. I read a lot about that series as a kid growing up. I remember a book that I had called ‘Twenty-Seven Days in September, and I just read page for page for page after page, and it had French translations, and I learned my French from that book! I was like 8 years old and I could not get enough of that series. It was just such a riveting spectacle, the way the Canadians came back and the narrative of that series. For me to be able to do an episode on the Summit Series was a real thrill. And to be able to dig in ways no one had done before was really interesting. My second novel I wrote was called ‘Understanding Ken, Ken in that novel being Ken Dryden. To interview Dryden for that was great, and he wrote ‘The Game, one of the greatest sports books of all-time. And I was a big time Habs fan, but of the non-Habs players Bobby Clarke was definitely my favourite. Every dad was into Bobby Clarke if he was a hockey dad, and he would be like “WHY CANT YOU BEAR DOWN LIKE BOBBY CLARKE” and you would be like “Dad, its because Im only eight!” so the whole thing is viewed with nostalgia for me. Its a great Canadian moment too. Even Phil Espositos speech after Game 4 in Vancouver is known as one of the five great Canadian historical speeches, if you can believe it. It really captured the nation. (Image courtesy of National Post) DW: It really shows you how important hockey is here in Canada. PM: Yeah, and arguably after that time things started to change a little bit. Other sports and other channels started seeping in and hockey became less the religion of the country. But in 1972 it certainly was the religion, and we saw that when the religion was sort of attacked by the Soviet win in Montreal. Thats when it really heated things up. That was such a shock to the Canadian psyche and the Canadian system. That loss heightened the drama of the Cold War, the difference in ideologies, it had everything the narrative of a good drama would want. The Canadian fan turning against the team in Game 4 in Vancouver, and Espositos speech, and Dryden saying “maybe were in this thing together, maybe were all in this together,” and the 3,000 people that went to the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War. You could have told me 150 people went there, like when I was reading about that, and I wouldve said “wow,” but 3,000 people, thats like a small town in Canada going to the Soviet Union to watch Canada, and they made their presence known as well. I remember a Quebecois guy saying, “This is the first time I ever felt like Quebec is part of Canada,” and he was at those games. It was an interesting time. (Image courtesy of 1972SummitSeries.com) DW: Now I know we just talked about the premiere, but was there a specific episode or topic that intrigued you the most while working on ‘Sports on Fire? PM: You know, the interview subjects were all so great that I find myself riveted in different moments. Not to pick names, but in different times, Tyler Hamilton and Bill Romanowski. Hamilton was a teammate of Lance Armstrong, and Romanowski won four Super Bowls and was one of the toughest players of all-time. I think he played 240 consecutive games as a linebacker, which is unheard of. Those guys were just riveting to me. And then in the gender piece on gender testing in womens sports it was amazing. It was humbling how much I didnt know about trying to test someone for his or her sex. And then the Jesse Owens piece to undercover some things that had never been said before was very exciting, and I met Harry Edwards, who is an amazingly important figure in the 1960s protest civil rights movements, and then the 1968 black power salute. And Munich was something else, I sat down with Ankie Spitzer who was a widow of one of the murdered Israeli athletes, and she was just fascinating and courageous. And she came to Munich for the interview from Israel. There were so many times I found my jaw on the ground, and I was so grateful for the people who gave these interviews at different times. I feel like a grandmother, because I liked all of them in different ways. And Im not kidding when I say that, I truly enjoyed… theyre so different, when you go from hockey to steroids, and then from steroids to gender, and gender to Munich where youre narrating a story about terrorism, and then youre into the 1936 Olympics in Berlin with the rise of the Nazis. Its all just so different. And when you capture the essence of each one and you think you have what you hope you have its very inspiring and very fulfilling. Its so tough man; I just loved making the series. (Image courtesy of NFL.com) DW: It sounds like it. Youre obviously passionate about the project. PM: I just loved it! I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to make these shows. And HBO and Bell and everyone there was just so open about allowing us to push it as far as we could, and do what we wanted to do, so it was just great. DW: Explain how this series is different from other documentaries and stories about the same subjects that we already know. PM: I think one way is that we really focus on not historical sports moments, but moments when sport and history collide. Some people do that as one-offs, but we did it as a series, which is completely unique. And I think another way is the key to our series is that were asking questions we think nobody else is asking. For instance, for the ‘All the Rage episode on steroids we dont ask them what did you take, we ask them why did you take them, what was going on? With gender we dont say, what were the results of your gender tests, we ask what was it like being put under a mirror and under scrutiny being tested for your gender when you know youre a woman. We took on asking questions no one else was asking. How far is too far in trying to win a hockey game? We didnt ask if it was a great series, the series speaks for itself, but why do we do what we do to win, and what makes that right or wrong? We asked with prohibition and the rise of NASCAR, we asked has NASCAR lost its independent roots now, is it too corporate? We just kept asking questions we didnt think other people were asking, and thats what I love to do anyway. And with Munich we explored what the German authorities might have known, and their connections at the time, and why there hasnt been a moment of silence given to the families of the victims in the actual opening ceremonies of the Olympics? So we just tried to ask questions other people arent asking, or ask them differently. So the key is to just get a different take on why things unfolded the way they did. DW: Was there a specific moment from researching and digging that genuinely surprised you to learn on any of the subjects? PM: In the hockey one I was startled, and grateful by the honesty of Bobby Clarke. He just told us exactly how he felt. Clarke has no sense of trying to reshape himself for some sort of brand. He just straight-up said, “I saw him coming from the corner of my eye, I hunted him down,” thats what he actually said, “I hunted him down, and I knew where I was swinging when I swung the stick.” And for steroids with Romanowski, the way he talked about steroids was so honest, and that surprises you. Just wow that is not a cliché answer in any way, hes not saying he feels bad or any of that, hes just saying why he did it. Why do we do what we do? Because he wanted to be someone, because of fear, because he didnt want to lose his job, he loved what he did and wanted to do it for the rest of his life, and he would do it right now all over again the exact same way. There were moments of “wow, did he just say that?” So what surprised me most was what the subjects had the courage to say.

PM: I think first and foremost its entertaining, but after that these are such seminal moments in the human journey, and I think its just exciting to relive them. And then to see them from a different angle than the way you thought you knew those moments in history is really worth tuning into. And it was certainly worth making! DW: Awesome. Im genuinely excited to watch the series, and thanks a lot for taking the time. PM: My pleasure, Danny. Athletics Josh Phegley Jersey . -- The taxing preseason, which included two games in China, is finally over. Athletics Ryan Buchter Jersey .C. -- The Carolina Panthers announced Thursday theyve signed free agent wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery to a two-year contract, helping rebuild a depleted wide receiving corps. http://www.cheapathleticsjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=athletics-reggie-jackson-jersey. \"Back in 2011, when they announced that the game was coming here, we knew that it was going to be pretty important that we had a good year and hopefully could get into it, let alone win it, so I felt some pressure obviously within for sure,\" Taman said Monday, less than 24 hours after the Riders won the championship. Athletics Dennis Eckersley Jersey .com) - Kam Chancellor bobbed his head in celebration as he crossed the goal line on his game-clinching 90-yard interception return. Athletics Kendall Graveman Jersey . -- Among the 31 players at the Montreal Canadiens rookie camp, none feels closer to cracking the NHL roster than right winger Aaron Palushaj. IRVING, Texas -- Tony Romo looked like the man in charge of the Dallas offence for the first off-season practice until the drills got a little more competitive. Five months removed from back surgery, Romo donned a baseball cap for 11-on-11 work. Theres no use in rushing, as coach Jason Garrett has been saying for weeks. Romo echoed that talk Tuesday in his first extensive interview since sustaining a herniated disk against Washington and missing the finale against Philadelphia with a playoff berth on the line. \"I dont know that theres anything you cant do,\" the 34-year-old said in the locker room after practice. \"You just want to make sure you dont put a high volume of numbers on it yet.\" For example, Romo says he has thrown at full velocity -- just not very often -- in his continuing recovery from surgery Dec. 27. That came two days before he watched from home while the Cowboys fell to the Eagles in a third straight season-ending loss that put them at 8-8 and kept them out of the post-season. \"Its very difficult to watch,\" said Romo, who was under centre for season-finale losses at the New York Giants and Washington the previous two seasons, and for another one at Philadelphia in 2008. \"That one obviously is out of your control. Thats what made it hard. Its amazing how big of a fan you become, rooting and excited about every little thing.\" Romo was further along Tuesday than he was a year ago, when he had surgery to remove a cyst on his back in April and missed all the off-season practices. He went to California ahead of his teammates for some intense conditioning work before training camp, and spent tthe first few weeks catching up.dddddddddddd \"Im actually excited just about comparative to last year where youre just going into camp without having had a rep in the off-season,\" Romo said. \"Theres some things I want to work on, and Ive been doing that in small doses. Now well get that ramped up here.\" Romo has a new play caller for the third straight season in Scott Linehan, who was offensive co-ordinator in Detroit before coach Jim Schwartz was fired after last season. Linehan and Garrett worked together for a season in Miami almost a decade ago, and plenty of the language will be the same. The new passing game co-ordinator is in no hurry to see up close all the things his new primary weapon can do. \"Were early,\" Linehan said. \"And the mental game that hes getting done with us and the meetings and the last four or five weeks when we started our off-season program has been huge. I know hes getting himself ready to go.\" There are daily discussions over whats next for Romo. \"Certainly we anticipate him being ready to go at training camp,\" Garrett said. \"Well evaluate how he did today, say, What do you think? Should we stick with the same plan tomorrow? What do you think about Thursday? Youre always trying to push the limit as best you can, but you dont want to do something where you go across that line and they have setbacks.\" NOTES: The Cowboys waived injured rookie free agent tight end Evan Wilson and signed guard Tyronne Green, a fourth-round pick by San Diego in 2009. Green has 28 starts in 41 career games. He was with New England part of last season but didnt play.
