View Full Version : Nationalism or Favorite-ism? Who will you cheer for?

Aug 9th, 2004, 03:48 PM
Assuming your favorite players ARE NOT from your country, who are you going to cheer for in the Olympics?

Aug 9th, 2004, 04:03 PM
Well I'm English so I haven't got much choice but to cheer for the foreigners. I'll be cheering for Jen, Amelie and Justine as usual. Oh God, I'm English and supporting the French and Americans, what's the world coming to :unsure:

Aug 9th, 2004, 04:15 PM
Same as England, Denmark don't have any players in, so I cheer for the Slovenian (Tina and Maja) and the Spanish players.

Aug 9th, 2004, 04:41 PM
I'm gonna cheer for my faves

Aug 9th, 2004, 05:13 PM
I'm cheering for Canadians and Polish teams, although I know they have a scant chance of winning a medal or even making a top finish. So, I hope that someone who is not American wins :) I also cheer for the underdogs, whoever that may be . In 2000, they were Oremans and Boogert. I hope we get something similar this year.

Patriotism my arse, I'm cheering for my favorites!

Allez Amélie!

Aug 9th, 2004, 10:43 PM
I'm cheering for Jcap. There aint really any british women playing. Well atleast I don't think so. I'll support tim in the mens.

Aug 10th, 2004, 03:43 AM
Canada's only represented in Men's doubles, so as long as Xavier doesn't play the canadian team, I'm fine... If that happens, I don't know what I'll do :unsure: :lol:

Aug 10th, 2004, 03:49 AM
Patriotism my arse, I'm cheering for my favorites!

Hantuchova, Dementieva, Dechy and Maleeva :hearts: :bounce:

Aug 10th, 2004, 06:49 AM
I am afraid I am unable to cheer for my home country as we have no representatives in women's tennis this year! :lol: :lol: Maybe next time...

Aug 10th, 2004, 12:42 PM
Sorry! I'm not very nationalistic. In fact I hope we don't make
our 100 medals goal. :lol:

Aug 10th, 2004, 02:09 PM
I mean, definitely patriotism. Because of the huge amounts of Canadian tennis players...athletes.

Aug 10th, 2004, 03:22 PM
There's not canada female player for my country..and well.. im gonna cheer for RUSSIA...and for the other sports...CANADA......well both :D

Aug 11th, 2004, 08:50 PM
way too hard, i am always knowledgable of US medal count and i always want medals for the US (at least 100 please!!) and then, since kim isn't playing i think i'll treat it as i want my faves to do well, and then maybe let chanda or whoever win the bronze, we'll collect enough in the other sports anyway, so i'll prob go with faves

Aug 11th, 2004, 08:57 PM
for tennis.... i'm rooting for the russians.... :yeah:

i actually live in the states but i'm canadian... but i really don't like any american players and i like most of the russian players....

ofcourse i'll just really be rooting for myskina... but i want dementieva to medal as well.

in terms of every other event, i am rooting for canada and great britain.... u.s. if none of the other 2 "countries" are involved.... ;)

Aug 11th, 2004, 10:40 PM
well i want Daniela Hantuchova to take gold but from my country, I want Chanda And Venus to take Silver and Bronze.

K&J fan

Aug 11th, 2004, 11:18 PM
Daniela my fav ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!

Aug 12th, 2004, 12:41 AM
Well, Britain haven't even got any players in the woman's tennis, so I'll be cheering for my favourites, as usual - Amélie Mauresmo and Eleni Daniilidou! :hearts:
But, I will be cheering a little bit louder for Eleni because I would love for her to win a medal in Athens! :worship:

Aug 12th, 2004, 03:30 AM
Well, it sort of a halfway thing. maybe I want an American to win the bronze or something, but overall I would root for my favorite players.

Aug 12th, 2004, 03:56 AM
I'm cheering for my faves :)

Aug 12th, 2004, 03:58 AM
Patriotism my arse, indeed! i don't care about the countries. Venus all the way in singles and doubles although I know it ain't gonna happen, and ZV to medal.
