Big girls don't cry, but big boys apparently do. Did you see this sad face yesterday? It's Tim Tebow, the quarterback for the University of Florida. The team lost their game and therefore, their chances of winning a National Championship. I understand it's your senior year, but really Tim? Crying on national television? One blog is naming him the "2009 Crysmen Winner."
This makes me wonder why men take sports so seriously. When I watch the Buckeyes with Mike, he paces back and forth, screams until the dogs are hiding under the bed, counts to 10 to relieve his anxiety, and constantly repeats to himself, "Serenity now! Serenity now!"
I try to relate to his love of sports by comparing it to my love of shopping. But I can't make sense of it all. Here are some scenarios I'm imagining...
Salesman: "Unfortunately we don't have that in size 8."
Me: "No!" (begin wailing)
Macy's salesman: "I'm sorry ma'am, use can't use that coupon for clothes, shoes or purses.
Me: "No! Serenity now! Serenity now!"
Or when I discover the escalator isn't working in the 8-story Macy's.
Me: "Oh my god, what am I going to do?? Why does it have to be so hard? All I need is a new puffer jacket!!"
So really Tim Tebow, are you regretting the tears?
