@cicerone imposter,
Well, C.I. you just made me cry AGAIN. What a wonderful thing for the opposing team to do.

@Intrepid,
Gives us hope, because it's the younger generation that's so selfless and giving.

@panzade,
I'm not so sure about that! I think guys can be "heroes" too.

@cicerone imposter,
It made me smile, not cry, ci.

Nice little film.

Go girls! Way to go!

(It's the teacher in me responding! Very Happy )

Those women who carried the runner got the message about what sports is all about.

They ARE winners, regardless of the score.

So does most of the Red Sox Nation.

If those ladies were on the Brazilian national soccer team, they'd be taken to the back and shot.

Either way, it was touching. It's kind of a shame they had to reenact the real events rather then have it actually depicted from any actual footage.

@msolga,
With your background with children, I defer to your response. I guess I'm a softie when it comes to stories where children are able to see the bigger picture, and take the action most will snear at. We just need more examples of that film to teach children values of living.

As an Oregonian I remember that story very well. It got a lot of coverage here. What a great story!

I was surprised to see that girls can be a terror on the soccer field too...

You must mean the Colombian team, I was just talking about that incident this weekend with some people I met in Bogotá.
