....they watch "Field of Dreams"??? I do. still. More than watching "Old yeller". It drives me crazy too.
It was on versus tv (crappy big 12 football contract) tonight. I recognize the schtick, the emotional directing, the dramatic music, the 1980's kitch. I still get a lump in my throat and have to peek around and make sure noones looking at a man about ready to cry. bizarro.
Football is a good sport, but Baseball is more. Baseball is the best. It is a sin Iowa State still can't play baseball. George Will has great analogies for baseball and America.
Of course, especially after I got older and remembered the times I got upset at my dad for wanting to play catch with me. The "if onlys" run deep when watching Field of Dreams. Also feel the butterflies inside when watching Rudy. Got to love the passion and work ethic of the little man.
Hah - I watched Field of Dreams on Versus tonight too (pretty exciting Saturday :(. It's been too long since I've seen it and yes, I would admit that it pulls on the heart strings a bit. :) Great flic.

I thought this thread was going to be about the begining monologue before the Army/Navy game. That was hard to watch without being choked up with the passion and pride that those players, students, parents, and families have for the United States military. The part that got me the most was when they were talking about how the 2 teams can hate each other so much for a few hours for one day then can have each others back when they know they will be heading into battle in a few months/years.
