Winning their games must be overemphasized if losing a game make them cry. Wow...who is pounding this into them? It is just for fun, after all, and it really doesn't matter who wins. It looks to me like someone needs to lighten up on these kids.
I wonder if the boys cry after losing a game...what is going on here?
It's not just a single game, Einstein. It's the end of the season. Kids often cry at the end of their season, especially when it ends with a playoff loss, because they believe they could have gone further. Seniors, especially, react because it's the last game they'll play for their school. One way or another, the last game of the season means that the team's work is over. It's true across sports and school activities, from marching band to basketball. And yes, the boys often cry, too; they just feel the need to hide it more.
