    I am sitting in the office getting a little work done and every football movie imaginable is on the schedule.

    I just finished watching Remember the Titans and We Are Marshall is just starting, two movies where it is guaranteed to "Get a little dusty" in here at times.

    What are your favorite "Dusty" movies?

    "Earn This" & "Tell me I am a good man" never fails to get me from Saving Private Ryan.

    The end of It's A Wonderful Life is another dusty moment.

    Share yours.

    Hanks gets the tearjerker title from me between Private Ryan and Philadelphia.

    Now for the goofiest, sentimental pick: Major League. "The Indians win the pennant! The Indians win the penant! Oh, my God, the Indians win the pennant!" always chokes up this Son of Wahoo.

    Wreck-It Ralph came out two months after my son's autism diagnosis. Talk about shooting fish in a barrel.

    The big payoff speech by Anthony Hopkins as John Quincy Adams in "Amistad" is a good one for me, because I am distantly related to the Adamses.

    In "A League of Their Own", when Betty Spaghetti gets the telegram in the locker room finding out her husband was killed in action.

    "My Girl", when Vada tells the mom of the Maccauley Culkin character that her son is fine in heaven because her mom is taking care of him.

    Some others, but those two were the first ones off the top of my head.
