Will You Support a European Team Against the Americans?
Driving back from the station just now listening to the pre match buildup for the USA v Czech Republic game I thought to myself: who would most people want to win this match - the American team or the European team? I will be supporting the Americans without any hesitation. Yet when the Ryder Cup is played later in the year I will be shouting for the Europeans, partly I suppose because there will be British golfers on the European team. But it's still a total inconsistency on my part. But isn't that the beauty of sport? There's no logic to sporting affinity at all.
