It has always interested me watching different sports and seeing how the players on the opposite teams would interact with one another. Even on non "team" sports like tennis and golf. The sportsmanship is interesting to observe. For instance in Football, during the regular season at least you will normally see opposing players helping one another up after a play or tapping an opposing players helmet, (or butt), after a play. In Tennis, a player may clap his hand against his/her racket after an opposing players winning shot. Also in tennis when one player hits the opposing player with a ball, they will normally apologize immediately. Basketball players will usually help up opposing players after foul, etc - again, in the regular season at least; the playoffs bring on a whole different aspect of sportsmanship. Baseball I don;t recall seeing much good sportsmanship; for instance after a pitcher plunks an opposing batter, I NEVER see them hold up their hand to say "sorry". I guess it's all part of the intimidation of hitting the batter? I really can't comment on other sports like golf, hockey auto racing, etc, since I don't follow them. These good sportsmanship acts go right out the door during playoffs or even when rivals play one another like Red Sox/Yankees, Bull/Pistons in the late 80's early 90's and Bull's Knicks in the 90's. It is ALWAYS a playoff atmosphere when rivals meet during the regular season. Please add your own observations.
