Cubs Fandom on Camera

The comedy minds at Schadenfreude have developed one of their sketches, the drunk and stumbling Cubs fan Colleen Henneman and her white-hatted boyfriend Todd Voorhies, into a full web series. "The New Bleacher Bums" follows their escapades in and around Wrigleyville.

Here Justin Kaufmann introduces the mockumentary in the style and tradition of "This American Life's" Ira Glass.
