This movie has been on cable a lot lately and for whatever reason i can't stop watching it. It's a wonderful story not only that anyone who has ever played sport can understand the sacrifice and chances you take, but also to see a man who made sacrifices to love his family, and just to be thanfkul. i was especially touched by the scene where he returned the relief money. If i lived during Braddock's era definitely would have pulled for a man like that. Just a wonderful story...
