Is there a way to break/uncover/crack/hack an Excel spreadsheet password?

I have a spreadsheet that has been handed around about a thousand times and it does some really interesting things I've never seen done with Excel before. I'd like to nose around in the guts (i.e. macros, hidden cells/sheets, etc) of this sheet but it is "protected" with a password.
Is there any way to find this password or break the protection with a program (preferably freeware/shareware/cheapware) or otherwise? I'm not snooping into anyone's financial data or anything, cross my heart. It's a baseball statistics spreadsheet.
I'd be happy to share with anyone who's a baseball statistics/betting nerd like I am particularly if he/she might be able to break it!
