Manny Pacquiao, wife Jinkee cry during interview after loss (Video)

Manny Pacquiao conducted an interview with GMA network broadcast in the Philippines that left him and his wife, Jinkee, in tears.

Pacquiao’s family has been urging him to retire from boxing after watching him get knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez on Saturday.

“When you see your husband get hurt, you cannot even sleep,” Jinkee said during the interview conducted while she and Manny remained in Las Vegas.

Asked if she wanted her husband to retire from boxing, she said: “You know the answer to that. He knows what I am asking him.”

The interview allowed the Pacquiaos to speak with their children over Skype. One of their sons told his father he didn’t want him to fight anymore. Both Pacquiaos were emotional while speaking with their children, and Manny was particularly emotional when he thought about the entire country and his millions of fans he let down.

“The low morale, the sadness, I accept that. This is my job…. But the reaction of the Filipinos, the many who cried, especially my family, it really hurts me,” Pacquiao said, per The Telegraph.

One of the sweetest moments of the interview came with about a minute left, when two of the Pacquiaos young daughters told their parents not to cry.

Despite his career in politics and the urging of his family to quit, Pacquiao does not appear to have plans to stop boxing. Pac-Man is turning 34 years old this week and is 54-5-2 in his career.

Colorado coach Jon Embree cries at last press conference (Video)

Colorado head coach Jon Embree was fired earlier this week after a 1-11 season, which is the worst year in the history of Buffaloes football. In two seasons as the head coach at Colorado, Embree compiled an incredibly disappointing record of 4-21. A former tight end coach for the Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins who never held a coordinator position, it is now obvious that the Colorado alumnus was in no way qualified to be a head coach.

During his final press conference on Monday, Embree broke down and nearly began to cry when discussing the relationship he had with his players.

“You guys just want to try to get me in trouble, huh?” he said while fighting back tears.

While it’s easy to understand how a coach can become attached to his players and get emotional about leaving, Embree left Colorado with no choice. The Buffaloes were beyond awful the past two seasons.

We understand his disappointment that African-American college football head coaches don’t often get second chances to be college head coaches, but what should be focused on is whether an injustice was done, and whether coaches are hired on merit rather than race. Embree probably did not deserve the job in the first place based on his experience, deserved to be fired based on his performance, and he should recognize those truths.

Thomas Davis reportedly cries after Panthers loss

The Carolina Panthers suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday that was so crushing it reportedly moved one of team’s players to tears.

According to Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer, Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis cried while talking about the team’s loss. “Thomas Davis brought tears in describing the Panthers’ latest loss,” Person tweeted.

It’s easy to see why Davis was so disappointed after the loss. The Panthers were up 21-10 with six minutes left and blew the lead. The defense allowed Tampa Bay to drive 80 yards in 50 seconds for a touchdown to make it 21-19 Panthers. Carolina also allowed to a two-point conversion to tie the game and send it to overtime, and then they allowed the Bucs to go 80 yards for a winning touchdown in overtime.

Davis, who had a team-high 16 tackles, was penalized 15 yards on a questionable unnecessary roughness call during the tying drive. He also forced a fumble on a goal-line stand in the fourth quarter.

At 2-8, there is no doubt many Panthers fans are crying along with Davis. At least he didn’t hold up the team bus with his crying.

AJ McCarron cries on sidelines after comeback win vs. LSU

Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron was so overcome by emotion after leading the Crimson Tide to a go-ahead score against LSU on Saturday night that he began crying on the sidelines.

McCarron and Bama’s offense were quiet in the second half of the game in Baton Rouge and it looked like they were going to lose. After LSU missed a field goal, Bama got the ball at their 28 with 1:34 left and went 72 yards over five plays in just 43 seconds to take the lead. After being able to do much in the second half, McCarron led his team down the field for the win. He capped the drive with a 28-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Yeldon.

The junior quarterback went 14/27 for 165 yards and the winning touchdown in Bama’s 21-17 win over LSU. He also had a rushing touchdown.

Bama fans no doubt like this image a lot more than last year’s Roll Tide crying image.

Jordan Reed fumbled by goal line and appeared to cry on Florida’s bench

Florida lost to Georgia 17-9 in Jacksonville on Saturday for their first defeat of the season, and perhaps nobody was more heartbroken about the loss than Jordan Reed. The junior tight end led the Gators with five catches for 74 yards, but he had one costly mistake at the end of the game.

Reed caught a pass from Jeff Driskel on second-and-six with 2:22 left in the game. He broke a tackle to get the first down, and he was headed toward the end zone where three Georgia defenders converged on him. Reed decided to go airborne around the 5-yard line, and the ball was knocked out of his hands by Jarvis Jones. Georgia recovered the fumble in the end zone for a touchback.

Jones had 13 tackles, three sacks, and two forced fumbles, per the AP.

Georgia took over after Reed’s fumble and was able to run out the clock for a 17-9 victory. There’s no guarantee Florida would have scored and made a two-point conversion, but the fumble took away their best chance at tying the game.

In addition to combining for nine turnovers — six by Florida, three by Georgia (all Aaron Murray interceptions) — the teams were penalized a total of 127 yards. Both teams are now 7-1.

David Wilson cries after losing fumble in first career game (Picture)

Giants rookie David Wilson lost a fumble on his second career carry, and he was feeling so badly about it he began crying on the sidelines. If you look carefully at the image above (or click twice to enlarge), you can see a tear streaming from the corner of Wilson’s left eye. The first-round pick fumbled seven times last season at Virginia Tech and lost four of them, so there’s little doubt this was an issue already in his head.

Even though Wilson fumbled and may lose some ground in his competition with Ahmad Bradshaw (he didn’t receive any carries after the fumble), there are a few positives to the turnover. One, it didn’t cost the team any points. Two, at least the crying shows us how much Wilson cares. And three, he’s playing for a coach who has an excellent reputation for helping players with fumbling issues (see his work with Tiki Barber).

If it’s any consolation to Wilson, there are plenty of other athletes who have cried during or after games. You can see that full list here.

Vernon Davis Cries After Scoring Winning Touchdown (Pictures)

Vernon Davis has been with the 49ers since being drafted by the team in 2006. He never once played in the playoffs until Saturday when San Francisco hosted the Saints. Davis was an unstoppable force catching seven passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns including the winner with nine seconds left. The emotional comeback, coupled with the first playoff win of his career left Davis in tears immediately after scoring. Check out the pictures of Davis crying after his touchdown:
