Proof That I'm Not Made Of Stone...

In order to set the groundwork for my latest video, I must first revisit two posts from my archives. The first was from June of 2006 - my very first month of blogging. I did a post about three movies that make me cry. One of those movies was a film called Rudy. It's the story of a Hobbit that overcomes great odds to play football for Notre Dame. It doesn't matter if I only catch the last ten minutes of the fucking thing. I will tear up without fail.

The other post is a video I made of myself pretending to cry. It doesn't need any further explanation. I only mention it to provide some contrast.

The other day I caught the tail-end of Rudy. Thanks to the fact that I now have several continuously-rolling cameras throughout my house (because you never know when something hilarious will happen), I was able to capture something none of my other videos have - a moment of poignancy. Most of you probably thought there was no way I could embarrass myself any more than I already have. Pffft. Ye of little faith...

Geez, you look like the Native American guy on that 'Please Don't Litter' commercial I used to see on TV as a kid.

Oh hell, I'll join you in that pose if you throw on The Shawshank Redemption and play the scene where they're able to drink a beer on the roof after Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) cuts a deal with the guard.

You appear to be leaking!!!

Also, why do guys only cry when sports are involved? WHY? If that damn hobbit beat CANCER you'd probably be all, "Oh. Where's my dinner?" but football? Man, that's emotional. :)
