Do you watch the same stuff over and over?

I have a fair amount of DVDs and Blu-Rays, but I always end up watching the same ones over and over again. There's like 3 or 4 discs I have that do this to me. I think it's because of what they are all about (baseball ), and lots of times I get really down in the dumps and I feel they are an excellent pick-me-up. Anyway here they are. You will not be surprised at this:

MLB Bloopers: The Funny Side Of Baseball
(I swear this is my absolute favorite DVD that I have ever owned. I watch it almost every night!)

Yankee Stadium: Baseball's Cathedral

Shea Goodbye: 45 Years Of Amazin'

And the first half hour of the September 21,2001 game between the Braves and the Mets at Shea Stadium. (It's on the 'Essential Games Of Shea Stadium' collection.) It's the first baseball game played in NYC after 9/11. The opening ceremonies are just so moving to watch. After that, I jump straight to the bottom of the 8th inning so I can watch Mike Piazza's home run.

So are there any discs that you all have, where you do this? Watch the same ones over and over no matter how much other stuff you have in your collection? If so, what is it about this stuff that makes you do that? (As I said, I love baseball, and it is a great morale booster for me. That's why I do these things...)

I know one thing: come December 15, I will add another entry to this list. Specifically: the 2009 World Series.
