Talking about how his team are bonding on and off the course as the countdown continues in Chicago, the 48-year-old struggled to get out the words when he said: "I love being around them."
Love then revealed that he and Masters champion Bubba Watson both cried during a team dinner on Tuesday night when a film of Ryder Cup highlights was shown.
"Bubba and I are going to cry a lot," Love added.
There were more tears yesterday afternoon when he was asked about Tucker Anderson, the 18-year-old son of a well-known golf coach seriously injured in a car crash last Friday.
Meanwhile, his European rival has played down any hype surrounding a possible Rory McIlroy v Woods singles clash shootout on the final day.
Jose Maria Olazabal said: "Sunday will be what will be.
"I know all of you in the media are eager to see that match played, but we will have to wait and see what happens. First of all how the matches develop.
"Obviously tomorrow and Saturday are going to be crucial to know what we're going to be doing on Sunday.
"My guess is as good as yours, but I think the Ryder Cup is more important than that single match."
