An almost hidden camera feel takes us behind the scenes in what looks like a cockfight arena, in which seedy characters are betting and getting worked up into a fervor over a pending bout. But the twist is that the contestants instead turn out to be two miniature human fans of the Yankees and Red Sox, respectively--and what we're watching isn't an investigative report but a promo for an upcoming baseball game on ESPN.
