Seeing Miracle on 34th St. is basically just one long advertisement for Macy's (which is probably why it outlasted Gimbels), so I really don't have much to say about the movie. Repressive parents don't want their children to have such wild imaginations, which stifles creativity and yadda yadda yadda ... SNOOZERS! I don't really want to get into the logistics of not believing in something like Santa, but having it okay to believe in a really big ship that saved 2 of every animal from a flood. Besides, my last post was an Xmas movie, so let me break down miracles I've witnessed in my lifetime.
1980 - The Miracle on Ice
I was quite young and couldn't get the full appreciation of this at the time, but the fact that I still remember being at a party with my parents and how happy everyone was, means that's pretty big. This rivals my memories of my mom singing me to sleep with "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" which probably happened in the 70s, so that may have it.
It's crazy how in the late 90s, all these players started hitting the ball so well, there's really no other explanation aside from it being a miracle. I don't get why people hate Bonds so much. The guy hit so many dingers, and everyone loves dingers. 73 in one year! Miracle!
Some people hate the whip, love the Mayo. With some people, it's vice-versa. This is an untested rivalry. If the shit ever hits the fan, I wonder which side would win? It's a lesser Coke vs. Pepsi (Coke won) Nike vs. Reebok (Nike won) and of course McDonalds vs. Burger King (McDonald's won, but BK is better). This is the ultimate testament to how little I believe in miracles that I'm talking about what you put on your turkey sandwiches. I'll stop.
A black man winning the presidency in America (after other greats such as Morgan Freeman and Dennis Haysbert came oh so close) is pretty crazy. I'd say it would be a miracle if it weren't for the fact that he was the complete opposite of Dubya. Dubya was so bad of a President, America elected a black person. Great for America, bad for the Bush family.
OK, so I've never witnessed a miracle. Have you?
