Hot as a Pistol
I know this story about the autistic kid who played some killer ball is everyone's current favorite heartwarmer, but my favorite part is the video, wherein these kids go progressively more bananas with each subsequent basket, culminating in an ecstatic moment where they pour down upon this kid like they're charging to war. I can just hear all of America clapping, laughing and wiping away a grateful tear from their eyes. I can just see dollar signs popping up in the pupils of movie producers as they rush into town to try to get rights to this story. I think Leonardo DiCaprio is probably calling his agent right now, saying, "I think I'm ready to play another retarded kid, Jerry. . . "
