The only time I get the American Spirit is during Davis Cup and I haven't gotten excited about Davis Cup since Sampras, Agassi, Courier were the main team.
Last year when Agassi played Federer at the USO Finals, I was routing for Agassi because I like Agassi, not because he's American. This year, I was routing for Federer because I'm not a big Roddick Fan and I really like records being broken, which raises the Bar up a notch again.
This is exatctly the thing I don't understand...
Ok, you don't like Roddick.. but still he's an american and he represent your country, doesn't he?
