One of my favourite Tom Hanks mo­ments comes in the movie A League of their Own. Coach­ing one of the women’s teams, a player starts to cry af­ter he be­rates her. He goes on to scream: ‘‘There’s no cry­ing in base­ball, there’s no cry­ing in base­ball.’’ While there may not be any cry­ing in base­ball, there is in bas­ket­ball. Af­ter los­ing to the Chicago Bulls by a point last week, the Heat be­came em­broiled in what has be­come known as Cry­gate (Water­gate has a lot to an­swer for, any scan­dal in the US al­most im­me­di­ately be­comes some­thing gate, very unimag­ini­tive). Heat coach Erik Spol­stra was asked how his play­ers re­acted to the loss, he told the me­dia there were tears, and cry­gate was born. We hope they don’t burst into tears if they lose to­day.
