Find Out Why Brain Cries When Watching Field Of Dreams [VIDEO]
My wife came home from work last night to find me crying. Not just a tear streaming down my check, but uncontrolable, ugly crying. Why? I was watching the end of the movie Field of Dreams. It happens everytime I watch it. ”Hey Dad, wanna have a catch?” Cue the waterfall. The movie plays upon the emotions of a father-son relationship that is mended right there on the ball diamond, over something as simple and innocent as a game of catch. But it has an even deeper meaning for me.
My grandfather passed away several years ago. One of the best memories I have is the day that we got to play baseball at the Field of Dreams. I didn’t really understand my grandparents. They were “old”, and from a different generation. But on that chilly fall day, we had fun playing baseball. The movie has had a different meaning for me ever since.
This weekend I’m taking my family to the Field of Dreams for the first time. So I can play catch with my kids, and make some more memories that I hope will remain with all of us for a lifetime to come.
