Even more so that I am not going to get behind the Olympic Men's BB team. I don't know if I am rooting against them so much as I not rooting for them, and instead rooting for others. It is a bit nuanced, as just about everything I feel about nationalism. I was going to use them as an example actually but decided not too. On the one hand, this country has the best basketball but it is hard to get emotionally connected to it either.Rekdiver wrote: ↑Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:23 pmI thought about a reply for a while...so you think the Olympic Men’s basketball team should lose.....Babe it’s USA all the way...McLeansvilleAppFan wrote: ↑Sat Jul 06, 2019 5:33 pmIf you re-read my post you will note I said unless it is App State.AppinATL wrote: ↑Sat Jul 06, 2019 4:55 pmBy this logic, you should be pulling hard for GA State to beat us this fall!

I certainly don't have anything against any of them that would push me to root against them, and if they win I am not going to be upset, but I do like to share the wealth on things such as this.
I am glad Rapinoe got the first goal! I am not upset the USWNT won but I like a good underdog victory at any level.
