I ask this because I just returned home from playin' ball with some friends at the rec for awhile. Now, there wasn't many people so we were able toget a 5-on-5 with some other guys there and just played. Well the games went back and forth, with the series ending up 2-2 and before we all left decided toplay one last game. Anyways, it's a close game I wasn't as productive as I was in the previous games, and one dude was just RIDICULOUS, anything hethrew up just found a way to go in, and we eventually lose by 2. Afterwards, frustrated, I caught the ball (my ball) as it went through the net slamed it downand shouted "Gawd Damn it!" After the shout I did my normal "post-game" routine (win or lose), shaking hands, saying 'good game' to my opponents and teammates. Anyways,as we are walking out, my friends are telling me that I was being a sore loser and taking the game way too serious. I just hit them with the , cause, yeah it is a random pick up game, buthell, I still want to win. I mean I'm not one of those Rec Center warriors who dive over benches and folding tables for loose balls, but I'm not justgoing to walk up and down the court and throwing up stuff cause I don't care (those dudes annoy me). Eh, maybe I'm just venting, but I don't liketo lose. To me, the dudes who knock over trash cans, walk out of the gym cursing and not talking to anybody are the "poor sports." I say poor sportcause I think 'sore loser' isn't that much of a bad thing, hey I'm a competitive person. Anybody else just get a little frustrated when you lose? Not just in a pick-up game but anything in general?
