I Am a Blubbering Sissy

Earlier this week, I saw a story on SportsCenter about some amazing sportsmanship and it made me mist up. The written article won't have the same effect, but the video really got me.

I can watch all sorts of sad shows and deep drama and they don't induce any tears. Sad documentaries? Nothing. Depressing reality show like Intervention? Nothing. But show me a touching sports story involving underdogs, and I react like a parent at their youngest daughter's wedding. It's really amazing. SportsCenter does this to me once every couple months. It's ridiculous.

After watching a story like that, I need to grab a beer and watch some UFC. Anything to get my testosterone levels back up.

Soundtrack: Lee Morgan (The Sidewinder)
