Losses. Bad breaks. When these things happen, players and coaches and fans wear the fallout on their faces, showing a side of sports that's painful -- but also compelling. So, Playbook is working with the Tumblr "
The Agony of Defeat" to find the most eye-catching photographic examples each week.
Here are the selections from the past seven days:

Gibson emerged relatively OK; he told TMZ he sustained a broken nose, but no head trauma.
