Interest in a Pirates Documentary?

So this is just something that has been kicking around in my head for a week or so.  I am a film major here in Pittsburgh with a year to go before I graduate.  With my senior project approaching, I would really love to do something great.  Aside from film, one of my other passions has always been sports, mainly Pirates baseball.  I got my Three Rivers Stadium foam finger autographed by Steve Blass while my dad explained to me who he was.  I sported by Brian Giles kids replica jersey with pride as I rounded the bases on a Sunday afternoon.

 

Recently I came across this trailer for a documentary about the Giants and their fans.  Rather than telling the stories of west coasters who discovered baseball last September, I think it would be very compelling to hear from the "resistance" because as Pirates fans, let's face it, we are the best fans in existence.

 

There are a lot of preliminary ideas I have for this.  For instance, I definitely want to hear from the "older" Pirate fans who can remember their winning days.  I also certainly want the "lost" generation of Pirates fans such as myself, who have never seen winning Pirates baseball.  I am definitely interested in rounding up some of the bloggers as they are essential to this community as well as possible appearances from players and the front office.  There is a lot to cover, so it is hard to find a main focus, but I think a section on dispelling some of the misconceptions about the Pirates (we are just a Yankee farm team, etc.) would be worthwhile.  Perhaps I can even bring in members of the opposition to discuss their views as the blogger side provides counterarguments (Smizik debate anyone?)

 

Like I said, this is a very very new idea to me so absolutely nothing is set in stone.  I made this post mainly to gauge reaction and interest and well as hear about any suggestions and resources I should be aware of.
