It seems like something I could use, except I don't really get how.

The sample that parses ESPN's pitch-by-pitch summaries of baseball games,
look like it would do something like the thing I want to do. The problem is
that the script doesn't do anything. I guess that the web page has
changed...

Is there some other place I can go to see some more samples on using
BeautifulSoup or maybe more documentation?
