Pretty much nothing makes me hysterically craugh (cry/laugh) like watching sports in slow motion. I have no explanation for it, I just know that it happens. Every time.
This clip from Mighty Ducks 2 (the best of all the Mighty Ducks), only has about 4 seconds of slow-motion celebration, but that's really all it takes. (Also, you gotta love when Gunnar tells his coach, "You lost it for yourself." BURN.)
I really can't even hear the name Derek Redmond without completely breaking down.
They make a "One Shining Moment" montage at the end of the NCAA tournament every year. This one is especially close to my heart as it is the one from 2004, my freshman year in college, when Oklahoma State made it to the Final Four. Sometimes I still can't believe I was lucky enough to experience the electricity and togetherness on that campus throughout March Madness that year. Daniel Bobik's wife galloping in the stands! The legendary Eddie Sutton looking grumpy as all get-out! John Lucas hugging his father after his epic 3-pointer! I can't even handle this video!
Queen Whitney, the Olympics, people fencing and long-jumping and swimming and diving and gymnasticing, all in slow motion. It's "One Moment In Time," and in that one moment of time, I feel free to cry as much as I please.
