And what does the body language expert's body language say about what she wants to project?

Do people actually get paid for being "body language experts"?
If so, can I get in on that scam?

Duh.

A playoff contender in the NFL should never surrender a 21 point lead to a fourth-rate, sub-marginal team, even on the road. Of course they looked sad - they were getting punked by a lesser team and they didn't have the spine to take back the game.

But if you think they looked sad, think about all the folks who laid out serious cash on the G-Men covering the spread...

Missile silos.

More victimhood. Don't these big kids make gazillions of dollars? What right do they have to be sad {whine}{ whine} {whine}

Sad people don't have to look sad. They will bring everyone else down while giving encouragement and satisfaction to their opponents..

Why didn't they look angry? Why weren't they angry? Why wasn't the coach angry? He should have kicked their sad, self-pitying butts into a motivated team.

If they had adjusted from looking defeated to looking like warriors they just might have changed the outcome. Doesn't the military require shoulders back, posture straight and a 'game' face. Maybe they need a marine drill sergeant to kick their sad-sack butts.

I suspect a big salary cut would do wonders...
