I'd heard that clip a few times already, so it didn't really affect me, but my wife had not heard it. And so I wasn't surprised to look down toward the other end of the couch and see tears running down her face. And because of that, I got a little choked up, too. How do you not get sucked in, even if you're a cynic, to pulling for the guy whose wife has cancer? Mickelson said after after his wife was diagnosed, he'd sometimes be driving in his car, alone, and burst into tears for reasons he couldn't quite explain. And when I heard him say that, I understood completely. I thought to myself, "That's exactly how I'd react."
