My wife had to ask me three times before I consented to watch this video, which most of the rest of America has already seen.I did watch it last night, and it almost brought me to tears of happiness. What’s more, I keep thinking: why is this so inspiring? It involves no handicapped child getting a game winning hit in a little league game. It’s just a very goofy guy doing a very goofy dance in a bunch of different places. Yet it somehow taps into a something deep — a common human impulse toward joy, which transcends nation, race or dancing skill.

Did it touch you? Why?
