Crying while watching the Olympics

Does anyone else cry? I mean, Mexico just won the bronze in synchronized diving, and I cried when the girls' parents came and embraced them and all bawled together. When the American guy swimmers won yesterday I got all teary-eyed. I guess I think about all the years of hard work and how they finally paid off. Or maybe it's the national pride. I don't know! How about you? Do you tear up?

I cry, I'll admit it. For me, it's thinking about how proud those parents must be after all of the sacrifices both they and their child have made.

The national anthem makes me cry too, but that's simply national pride.
