Why is everyone in Hockey crying all of a sudden?

Team USA Women's Hockey blew a 2 goal lead in the last couple of minutes, and so had to settle for silver.  Epic choke.  Tears were shed.

They're not the only ones.  Last April Team Canada's women lost to Team USA.  Tears were shed.

No crying in Hockey, girls.  I say that because, well, it's true.  And because Patriarchy.  But quite frankly, it's not just the girls.

Dude, no crying in hockey.  You look like the girls.  I say that because Patriarchy.  Go watch Goon on Netflix.

Seriously, is there anyone in hockey that doesn't cry when they lose?

1980, the Russian Men's team.
And they KNEW they were going to become the Russian Women's team for losing to a bunch of teenagers.

Since they aren't showing the medal ceremonies, this is the only tears we are getting...the agony of defeat.
