Week in review

Baseball’s regular season has passed, in exciting fashion. Bring on the postseason.

Pro basketball’s upcoming season is in peril — at least as we go to post.

But football season is in full bloom.

October’s kickoff this weekend promises plenty of dramatic matchups on the college gridirons, as our friends at First Take preview in the video above.

But before we look ahead to the weekend, let’s look back at what Front Row presented:

* A look back at the documentary about tormented Chicago Cubs’ fan Steve Bartman, “Catching Hell“;

* Some seminars from the espnW Summit in Tucson, Ariz.;

* A look into ESPN’s participation in the fourth annual Blogs with Balls Conference.

Saturday on Front Row, check in with a behind-the-scenes look at the newest “This Is SportsCenter” commercial featuring the Wisconsin mascot, Bucky Badger.

On Sunday, we’ll learn about ESPN”s Chief Technology Officer Chuck Pagano’s love of astronomy.

Speaking of Chuck Pagano, the Rasmussen Tapes are done.

Pagano took part in a conversation with ESPN’s Founder Bill Rasmussen this past spring during which he, Bill and fellow ESPN pioneer Bill Lamb reminisced about the very early days of the company and answered questions from six employees who weren’t yet born when ESPN went on the air: Brent Colborne, Melissa Fazzio, Joshua Gamage, Victoria Vaynberg, Rachel Nance and Matthew Hutvagne.
