I come from the south U.S. where we get downright religious about our sports. In the U.K. these folks are equal die hard supporters. No matter what sport or where, if there is a British athlete in the mix that is all the announcers will focus on – even if they aren’t that good. The Wimbledon support for Andy Murray blew my hair back.
I probably am not articulating this in the best way, but in 17 days you might get a better taste of why this country was selected to host the Olympic Games. We’re pumped. We’re ready.
