My2Cents — Men Who Cry And Women Who Love ‘Em

We’ve been having quite a discussion about Adam Morrison’s tears after the horrible loss to
UCLA. I only have an inkling of how he felt, having lost important games at all levels of baseball and softball play, from Little League all-star into college. An inkling. I’d need a press pass to qualify to be anywhere near the level of game that Adam, J.P. and the rest of the Zags are routinely involved in. I can’t remember crying. In fact, you can count the times that I’ve cried as an adult on one hand, twice involved the death of loved ones and once each as I dropped my kids off at college for the first time their freshmen years. It bothers me when I hear men talk about crying. Are they trying to show their galpals that they’re sensitive? Or vulnerable? Do femmes like that sorta thing? It seems wussy to me. Bottom line? Men should be able to show strength and consideration without turning on the waterworks.
