Even get the sad feeling from winning?

I know this is going to sound a little strange at first, but do you even get a sad feeling from winning.  For example, you and your opponent are playing a fantastic, even sharp game.  First he has the initiative then you have it, back and forth you parry and thrust and then all of a sudden your opponent makes a blunder.  Not only are you suddenly happy, but then when the realization that the game is over so quickly as your opponent's position falls apart, and you feel not only cheated at having won in a very "lucky" way, but your opponent has just lost in a very juvenile fashion.  (kind of like having your opponent slip on a banana and fall off the bridge during a heated fencing match).  Anyhow, that's my thought for the day.  Enjoy (feel sad) when these sorts of things happen in your games!
