Devil Dish: Golfing makes me weepy

I may not be the most emotional guy in the world, but when I saw ASU alumnus Phil Mickelson win The Masters on Sunday in Augusta, Ga., I got a tad bit weepy.

I don't really know how to explain it, but when I saw a man like that finally reach the level of success that he deserves, I couldn't help it.

If it were not for the fact that I was sitting among friends and colleagues who would have immediately bagged on me, I would have been flowing like Niagara Falls.

With Sunday's major championship victory, Mickelson not only proved that he was able to step up amid the pressure of a Sunday round of golf at a major championship, but he proved that sports can touch people in a place that we did not even know we had.
