The Vol-in-Law, who does not watch much sports, was watching the Olympics this morning. "We've won another medal," he reported.
The British are, apparently, delighted with their medals haul. "We've been doing well," he says. "Now how will we match this performance in 2012?" he wonders.
We. We. We. We.
It occurs to me that he includes me in this we. Like I'm thrilled that Britain's doing well.
Nope. I have to tell him, that though it's true I support the England football team - I don't give a stuff about the Team GB - the ridiculous name for the British Olympic athletes.
It's USA all the way for me, baby. Every medal scored by any other country is just one less medal than we deserve.
