Man Tears \man teers\
The effect on human males during times of ultimate jubilation or extreme devastation. Usually associated with Boston Sports teams (i.e. Bruins, Celtics, Patriots, and Red Sox).
Now that we got the dictionary definition of Man Tears out of the way, let me share with you my personal Top 10 Man Tears Moments in Boston Sports.
Sit back and shed some Man Tears with me. Remember guys don’t cry or weep, but Man Tears escape our eyes when witnessing sports ecstasy and/or travesty.
#10-Boston Bruins Lose To Carolina In Playoffs (2009)
The Bruins always find ways to break our Black and Gold hearts. After ousting Montreal in four straight games for their first playoff series win in ten years, Boston trails the upstart Canes three games to one.
Boston shut out Carolina in Game Five 4-0 then won Game Six in Raleigh to force a decisive Game Seven. The game would go to OT before Carolina’s cheap shot artist, Scott Walker pushed the winning goal past Tim Thomas.
My Man Tears couldn’t flow from my eyes because they were frozen in disbelief and horror. Did the Bruins just lose to the Whalers, I mean Hurricanes?!
Wait until next year…..again.
