united goal helps redirect emotional energy

I believe its not just the "laughing power" that helped with the emotional pain. It was belonging to a group with a unified goal, the redirecting of their energies( ties into this weeks parsha re dor hafloga) And if they went home and gave it thought, heres a game that coming in last is best!
