It's okay, Brett, you get to make this speech a dozen more timesWe have a vision of male athletes being these strong, tough, buff, ridiculously manly badasses. Their job is to win and they're supposed to take no prisoners. They don't have time to deal with that tiny little other aspect of life called emotion. Please.
(You knew there was a "but" coming.) But, there are times when athletes break this stereotype and help us to remember that they're just human beings too. They're prone to sadness, anger, frustration, and yes, even tears. There's something about seeing an athlete who's usually so stoic and tough break down and show his vulnerability. At times it can be really sweet!
So we rounded up some of the best videos that feature athletes crying like babies. Hey, I mean, why not. Enjoy! And give the big tough man in your life a hug while you're at it.
