Yes, there was man-hugging! [Jun. 10th, 2009|08:11 pm]

An awesome fan at Devoted to Tom Welling has found the moment where Tom spotted Mikey at the Lakers game and the guys ran into each other's arms. Big thanks to canadabear for reposting at justtomwelling

The fan is filming from across the court so you have to watch carefully:

1) scroll to the 1.40 minute mark.
2) Tom (in white cap) is sitting at the left front side, at about 1.50 he stands up and points. At Michael!
3) Michael (in black) walks towards Tom and Tom walks towards him.
4) TACKLE HUG!



This is fannish scholarship at its best! And serenography has posted 'caps at justtomwelling

Me, too. The sequence of events is so lovely. Tom stands up. Tom points: "You. Me Hug." And then, BOOM, armload of Mikey!

Thanks so much for posting this!!
All credit belongs to that amazing DTTW poster, bless her heart!

I know, I can't stop watching either. Tom's point is so gorgeous, spying Michael across the aisle. Love seeing Michael's arms clinch round Tom's waist.

This DTTW poster has done a great service to fandom!

Just look at our boys!! ♥ ♥ ♥
They do the BEST reunion hugs!

Voldything says it's like the end of a romantic movie and it so is! Love the headlong rush into each other's arms and Tom pointing is so alpha: COME HERE AND HUG ME.

Gosh, this was like Where's Wellingbaum Waldo. I watched it like ten times before I found them.

And aww. They're so sweet. Point! It's Rosey! Squee! Hugs!

I know! Without Tom's hat, they'd have been invisible!

Tom "points" just like my friend's Irish Setter! And the hug is so lovely.

Man huggies!!
It's a proper hug too - Michael's arms go right round Tom!

I hope they made a date to get together soon.
I hope so! SV starts filming on July 7, right? So there is still time for an LA rendezvous!

I know! It's also fortunate he insists on wearing that hat everywhere. I followed the hat to the hug!

Just wanted to squee with you again over Tom's & Michael's fabulous hugging reunion. So adorable and awesome! :-) Why didn't Michael take a pic of him and Tom with his cell phone?!?!? I guess I shouldn't be greedy...

ETA: Someone needs to write the story of what happened after the game, when they hung out together...;-)

Maybe he did! (But if so, he might keep it for his own private SQUEE!)

Off to bed now, hopefully to dream of man-hugs!

I rewatched it so many times...and I noticed that they're talking after the hug and I'm not really sure but they sit together to watch the game!
Why aren't any candid photos??

I find it wild that someone managed to capture that moment on camera, someone who obviously wasn't trying to and had no idea it was happening. Thank you so much for posting it for us all to enjoy and spin dreams around.

I know! It's serendipitous that the camera moved that way just as Michael was walking towards Tom.

Gee, even the most difficult "Where's Waldo"-thingy is easier. I had to watch that clip 15(!) times until I spotted them - and now there's a print of my nose on my screen. *lol*
