Am I seein' what I'm seein?

One day, I will be able to watch the end of Cinderella Man and my eyes won't tear up. But that day is not today.

There is something about all the guys jumping out of their seats and rushing the ring, the people in the Church rejoicing, the bartender handing out the beers to a crowd four deep, the celebration in the streets, the announcer reading, "The NEW heavyweight champion of the world"... it is just gorgeous.

The REAL last rounds of Braddock's fight.

I thought Cinderella Man was one of the best films I've ever seen. And, I've yet to see the end of The Natural without tearing up. I feel your pain.
