Is there crying in football? What sports moments have made you cry?

New, comments

As has been the case in recent weeks, our friends at the SB Nation flagship are running a theme week. This week’s them is kind of an open-ended one. It is ‘sports moments that made us cry.’

I’ll be brutally honest. I will be 60 years old in a couple of months and never in my life has a sporting event caused me to cry. I doubt one ever will.

I jumped for joy as a kid when the Notre Dame men’s basketball team broke UCLA’s years-long winning streak. I have throughly enjoyed four New York Giants Super Bowl titles, and several New York Yankees World Series crowns. There have been moments that bummed me out or ticked me off. Like the tragic death of Thurman Munson.

But, tears? For an event I’m not participating in and that doesn’t change my life in any appreciable way? Nope.

Anyway, my question for you guys today is ‘what sports moments have made you cry?’

They can be Giants-related, but don’t have to be. Another team, something you or a family member participated in, whatever made the water fall from your eyes.
