Morgan Freeman tries his best to make us cry

Remember Derek Redmond? He was the British runner who snapped his hamstring while running the 400m at the 1992 Olympics, but his dad broke through security and helped him finish the race. I remember watching this, and crying because this moment was so moving. Sixteen years later, I'm sobbing all over again. I could handle hearing the story again, but must it be told by Morgan Freeman? What's next? Michael Phelps crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of smelling foulness I can't even imagine? Is Eddie Dupris going to be the boxing commentator? I better get my box of tissues ready.
