Absolutely. It's pretty hard to imagine yourself as James Bond when your girlfriend keeps shooting you in the face, or worse yet, leaving proximity mines on ammo so you blow up like some chump asshole and the game's not even FUN THAT WAY WHY DO YOU DO THAT?!
You can't tell, but I just hurled a controller at my monitor. Though we may only get slightly annoyed when our buddies hand us our digital asses, there's a whole quadrant of our pout-gland devoted to when you do the same.
I'm not even sure it's ALL guys, but it seems pretty logical to me that a gender evolved to compete for mates wouldn't take kindly to being shown up by the very mates they are competing for.
You guys are the prize; in our caveman brains, that means that you're not supposed to challenge our inner sureness that we are, in fact, John McClane, and your vagina is the vent system of Nakatomi Plaza.
Part of growing up, at least for a dude in America nowadays, is the moment when you realize that you aren't alpha dog, and the world isn't going to give you a bunch of perks just because of your magnificent testicles. Granted, you'll still get a lot of perks relative to women, foreigners, and children, but not all of them. And frankly, that stings.
So the next time you're toying with your guy at the very edge of a stage, ready to uppercut his ass into a pit of lava, remember that you may as well be stomping on his genitals over and over again (and that to do that move, you press punch and kick, then hold the "interact with testicles" button).
Also, FYI, I ignored the "sport" part of your question, because I'm unfamiliar with the term.
