Yeah - I was rooting for them to do well and represent us with honor - but they lost my support completely when they made their international representation of US on the field of play all about themselves and their misguided nasty personal politics off the field. I truly felt they should have been removed from representation of the National Team for publicly airing their disrespectful personal politics for personal attention and the 'adoration' of those (anti-Americans) for whom I have no regard or respect for myself. Those type of unprofessional professional athletes truly disgust me.
I (selfishly) hope they lose embarrassingly - since they have so selfishly embarrassed us all with their tainted antics and misguided uneducated politics.
As for the 'tea cup' - I'm on the fence - it wasn't such a bad thing, and yet after the 'all eyes and attention on me' political comments it was just another display of the personal lack of class from these people who are supposed to be representing Our Nation on the field of play.
As Laura Ingraham would say - Shut up and Sing!! (or in this case shut up and play!)
