Michael Phelps

CRYFEST

at the Super Bowl

EXCLUSIVE

0205_michael_phelps_crying_launchHow do we know Michael Phelps is secure in his manhood? 'Cause he cried in public at the Super Bowl ... WITH HIS MOM ... and TMZ has the pics.

The greatest Olympian of all time -- who happens to be a die-hard Baltimore Ravens fan -- unleashed the waterworks at The Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday ... where he and his mother were cheering on their hometown squad.

The pics were taken right at the end of the game ... as the Ravens wrapped up their victory against the San Francisco 49ers ... and judging from the pics, Michael couldn't quite control his emotions.

Somewhere, Ray Lewis is smiling (and also probably crying).

Sports and family dying are probably the two things men can get away with crying over without anyone asking questions.

Ray Lewis doesn't cry. He tries.. sometimes he gets some tears. But he's a fake. A fraud. he wants people to love him. He's a narcissistic a-hole. A great player? Yes. HoF'er? Yes. A Fake? Yes. I live in Baltimore. He's a fake.

Michael Phelps is greater than Jesse Owens? He won the most medals of all time, that doesn't necessarily make him the greatest of all time. Swimming lets you win far more medals than any other sport.

I like the idea that an athlete as great as Michael can get excited over someone else's success - in this case, a whole team. Also there are things that money can't replace and it's spending quality time with the family, good on you Michael!

I guess unless you live in the Baltimore/Maryland area you would not get it. Robert Ersay & The Colts left in the 80's late at night in moving vans as if they were running away hoping no one would notice. Then the NFL skipped this city/state over and over when allowing expansion teams. The city of Clevelands government pushed Model into moving BUT he left the teams name & legacy and we were blessed with The Ravens after so many years of Jack Kent Cook (Then Redskins Owner) blocking any team from coming to this area. The first Superbowl in 2000/2001 was sweet this feels even sweeter because from start to finish The Ravens were Underdogs that would not win so all the so called experts said. This is a proud time for Baltimore...AS they can see This City and State Does Love and Support its Football Team and has for "O" so many years.
There are tears of happiness all over the state becasue we know what it is to not have the team and we appreciate what we have and what they have brought home....the Championship!

God gave men tear glands the same as he gave them to women, so obviously he expects men to use them, nothin' wrong with that ;)
Too bad 49ers lost, but you win some, lose some, that's life, up the ladder we go for next year baby oh yeeeaah
