Have you ever teared up while watching a sporting event?
Steeler fans don't have much to cry about
Almost Desean Jackson's PR v NYG 2yrs ago
Stealers loss to broncos in playoffs last year... I was so happy.
I once sprained my ankle during an international soccer tournament and witnessed as my team took only 2nd place because they were down man. I felt like tearing up. Ha ;)
When Chelsea won the Champions League!!
When the lost to the steelers in the super bowl just one inch from overtime. Not going to happen in the next decade or so
Yes! So many times. Mostly during the Olympics. I also cried so much when the USA women's soccer team lost to Japan in the world cup because of PKs!!! : (
Yes. But only when the "fab five" girls USA gymnastics team won gold earlier this week. When Ali finished her floor exercise I started to tear up as she did.
PIssed off by not crying
Nah. Just laughed at the occasional nut-shot.
During the Olympics. :') Each one of those athletes are living their dream, medal or bit.
Scotstots- cute story )
When I was little I played on the red sox in little league, I thought that meant I had to root for them like I was really a part of their team. I cried for a while when Buckner let the ball go between his legs in 1986.
When the Seahawks lost to the steelers. And reruns of 1996 Kerri strug landing the fault.
When Notre Dame got cheated by USC with "The Bush Push" cried like a baby
Rarely, yes, but only during the singing of our national anthem.
There have been so many times for me I can't even count them. Recent examples are Phelps' last race and the team gymnastics gold, but I've been crying over the stories behind the victories and losses since I was a kid.
Cubs fan...says it all
When the steelers won Super Bowl 40
Yes... hearing the Argentine national anthem during the 2004 Olympics as they won the gold medal in Basketball. It was a fantastic moment for Argentines.
Wasn't expecting these results, but yes I have cried during a sports game- same as Emsies. First and only time was during the Giants v Patriots super bowl in 2008. It was an amazing season and overall spectacular super bowl game.
I can't remember a specific incident, but I might have during the Olympics at some point growing up.
I was definitely not expecting these results.
Same as prbeff--Women's team gymnastics gold at 2012 Olympics.
Thanks for the offer @arste, but I'm good with my past time. Thanks for being so critical though!
Ray Bourque lifting the Cup.
People who get teary eyed over a sports event really should consider another past time.
World series game 6
Several. superbowl xxxvii, and Michigan race after M.Martin's father died come to mind.
I went to the first home game at PNC Park after September 11. I've never felt anything like that, and still occasionally reminded, and eyes watery, when I hear the National Anthem
When the women's gymnastics team won the all around gold medal in London.
The Bartman game.
Also the sprinter who fell and his dad helped him finish the race makes me tear up every time.
When USC lost their first game for 2 years in 07
Yes. 2011 national championship. My dog died and the Longhorns lost. Tough night.
During a lot of World Cups, if my favorite team won I shed a few tears of joy.
Teared up - I used to tear up phone books during soccer world championships :)))
No. I don't think I usually get that emotionally invested in the game, and don't usually care enough about the strangers that play to share their joy or agony.
The last race of Michael Phelps
Steelers lose to Green Bay/Dallas in the Super Bowls, Penguins in Stanley cup. More so tears of anger than sadness.
Go watch an Iron Man finish...some of the stories and sheer determination of the athletes will definitely have you reaching for a Kleenex!
Tear up? Heck I completely balled (bawled?) my eyes out 5 years ago when my Memphis Tigers were up by 9 in the NCAA basketball championship with 2:12 to go and THEN WE LOST BECAUSE OF FREE THROWS!!! Ughh, it still hurts so bad :(
The race that Dan Wheldon lost his life...
The only time I can remember shedding a tear, was after Walter Payton's last game. I think I was 11 years old at the time, but he was my sports idol as a kid.
For me it is the story behind the athlete and their triumphs or failures that make me tear up.
