There’s no crying in the High Life!

After the Miami Heat’s loss to the Bulls on Sunday, head coach Erik Spoelstra mentioned that there were “a couple of guys crying there in the locker room.” Whether or not Spoelstra should have made that comment is irrelevant to the fact that the Miami Heat locker room is not living the High Life right now.

It’s natural for a man to shed a tear from time to time. When there’s a death in the family, when his favorite team loses the Super Bowl, the end of “Marley & Me” — these are all appropriate times for a man’s eyes to well up. But he doesn’t make a spectacle of it, and he certainly doesn’t do it after a regular season game.

If there were waterworks in the Heat locker room after the team lost Game 7 of the NBA Finals, it would be understandable. A long, arduous season has come to an end…in failure.

But this was one of 82 regular season games. Eighty-two! Will it affect their seeding in the playoffs? Maybe, but that is hardly a reason to blubber like a member of Oprah’s audience when she reveals she’s about to give away her “Favorite Things.”

A High Life man would channel his anger into motivation, and would make darn sure that his team didn’t lose their next game.

That way, his team could get back in the win column, and get back to living the High Life.
