Rumors abound about Spike Lee creating a documentary about the Mo'ne Davis and the Taney Dragons. And maybe there will be a commercial during tonight's World Series game as well.

He's a New Yorker through and through.  What's worse, is he's a diehard Yankees fan.  But Spike Lee, like us, had the brains to figure out that the most amazing thing in baseball this summer were Mo'ne Davis and the Taney Dragons.

Rumor has it that he has been in Philly to film a documentary about the Davis and the Dragons.  From one source:

The film will be focused around the Taney Dragons and their journey to the Little League World Series.  The documentary will give viewers a behind the scenes story and  look at the team that captured America’s attention this past summer.  No word yet on the official release of the film.

Further rumor has it that there may also be a commercial featuring Davis during tonight's World Series game.  Be on the lookout.

And, of course, while in Philadelphia, Lee had to snap the obligatory photo of himself and Davis at the Art Museum steps.  At least the Rocky statue isn't in the picture!
