Did the guy look up and beat his fists on the ice like i did after falling one time? No, he just kept his composure and stayed in the play - but probably got ribbed on the bench for making such a bad play.
In b-ball, your emotions are all out front, everyone can see each other's face, the game is alot slower, and your percentages of success much higher. Hockey is a much more stressful game, so maybe its better I started now in my 40s, when I'm a more mature person, than in my teens or 20s, when I would have been far quicker to fly off the handle when I screwed up...
