Help make me cry with a recent mefi thread! December 8, 2009 9:26 PM   Subscribe

Looking for a relatively recent ask mefi thread concerning scenes in movies and short, internet available videos that would cause one to cry, although not necessarily sad. More along the lines of "uplifting and touching." All I remember is that both Big Fish and UP were mentioned, and it was around 3 weeks ago. Help!

What's better than the best answer? Because that's what Turgid Dahlia needs for those answers.

Isn't all of it uplifting and touching? It might be hard to narrow down what you're looking for.

Jason McElwain was an autistic high school student. He was the basketball team's "manager", and the coach decided to let him suit up and play in the team's final regular-season game. He proceeded to nail six three-pointers and a jump shot in four minutes and the place went nuts.

Dammit, now I'm crying again because I went and re-watched the stoopid video.

And, now I see that people were looking for threads and not videos. I'm a dope. Mods, feel free to delete. Gah!

I missed that thread turgid dahlia linked the first time around, or maybe I just wasn't up for it.

It's nice to know for all of our snarkiness, we all really are a bunch of saps at heart.

This wikipedia article has some followup on Jason. My favorite part is:

In 2007, Topps trading cards produced a Jason McElwain card as part of its retro-themed Allen & Ginter set.
