Well, this Suzyn Waldman story just keeps growing legs. Yes, she cried in the Yankees locker room after Game 4 of the American League Division Series. Yes, it was unprofessional. Yes, it was not the time to cry. Yes, it was not appropriate of a broadcaster to do so. Here’s the clip again if you want to be reminded of what happened.
But Suzyn is coming out swinging, defending her actions to Neil Best in a column that will be published tomorrow in Newsday. And Best has a sidebar in his blog about the story with Suzyn calling the criticism sexist.
It reminds me of the 1974 children’s TV program “Free to Be … You and Me” when football player Rosey Grier sang “It’s Alright to Cry”. I think that’s what Suzyn is trying to tell us.
