Not what you're thinking...

I'm watching the soccer, and I notice that , when there's a near miss, my reaction is (amongst other things) to shut my eyes.

Usually accompanied by a gasp then a sigh.

This sometimes means I miss a bit of the action, and I wondered - is it just me (I don't think so) and if not, what possible evolutionary advantage cold this hold (unless it's learned behavior, I suppose)
