There's No Crying In Baseball

"There's no crying in baseball."  I don't know what movie came from, but I like the quote.  There is no crying in baseball, at work, in a grocery store, when getting dumped, and the list goes on.

Unfortunately, society (mostly Hollywood) is telling it's okay to cry.  Okay fine, maybe in certain situations involving death, serious illness, near death injuries, and that's all I can think of.  I don't want to see a man cry.  I don't want to see his sensitive side.  I don't want him to have a sensitive side.  Flip the coin guys, do you want your girl to have a manly side?  Do you want to see her fart, burp, scratch her crotch, and melt slugs?  Yeah, now you see my point.

I can think of at least four guys I have gone out with that cried when we broke up.  1) I wasn't even crying!  Maybe that's the reason, but still.  2) We didn't even go on that many dates!

It is possible that some girls are into seeing a man's sensitivity and tears.  I can describe that girl: believes in unicorns and fairies, always wants to spend quality time together, kills boy's night, cries all the time, loves ruffles, and calls her mom 12 times a day.

  1. That quote is from "A League of Their Own" with Tom Hanks, Rosie O'Donnell, Madonna, Gina Davis (badass in a baseball uniform). Excellent Saturday afternoon flick.
