Talk about drivel. Nobody is burning any flags and nobody has insulted "the country" in any way. Go over-exaggerate in response to someone who might buy it.
I often cheer for the internationals or Europeans in golfs Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup. Why? I like the players from the other side more than I like the Americans. I could care less if Jim Furyk and Stewart Cink ever win another Ryder Cup and I could care less if Kobe and Lebron win gold medals. I don't need my country to win anything to feel good about it. Being number one in basketball is the least of my concerns. I'd rather see Kobe brick two free throws in the final seconds as Team USA is elimated by the Tuvans or better yet, the Iranians. That would be classic.
