Win and loss always evoke emotions. Loss does it more, especially when it is in a sport. As they say, sport is great leveler. It is the win and loss which levels your emotions. The excitement and euphoria of a win is replaced by somberness brought about by a loss. Extremes at times, but bringing us to a plane that’s more realistic.
As if telling us that it’s a life after all. Explaining the philosophy that every life is marked by death, eventually. A birth somewhere is marked by death somewhere else. Said in the adage, “One man’s sorrow is another man’s happiness.” Gender activists may find some problem with the use of word man, but that’s about it. It’s been a man’s world so far, and women have got less mentions (read: credit) at any point.
