Have you ever cried over baseball?

Have you ever seen a man

When I was in my early twenties, my boyfriend at the time never cried. Ever. (By now I've only cried a drop of wine.) But one night we were in bed and he was choked when he talked about it ...

... his father and their rough relationship. He started to cry. It broke my heart; He looked so vulnerable and cute, and I would have done anything to make him feel better.

Since then, I've had two other friends who cried over their fathers. It's like Kryptonite to people. But, funnily enough, I've never seen Alex cry - even though I'd been with people for years, talking about all sorts of topics, and getting engaged. I wonder if I'll ever see tears roll down his (bearded) cheeks! He told me that as a little boy he cried over baseball game losses and meaningless arguments; his friends would make fun of him so he learned quickly not to cry - and now, as an adult, he doesn't know if he could cry even if he wanted to.

Even Jerry Seinfeld cries sometimes ...

What about you guys? Have you ever seen a man cry When and why

P.S. A secret trick: How can you get rid of crying immediately when you feel like you are bursting into tears?
