Nationalism or Favorite-ism? Who will you cheer for?

Assuming your favorite players ARE NOT from your country, who are you going to cheer for in the Olympics?

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

Same as England, Denmark don't have any players in, so I cheer for the Slovenian (Tina and Maja) and the Spanish players.

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.

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

Sorry! I'm not very nationalistic. In fact I hope we don't make
our 100 medals goal.
