Marcel Theroux, born to an American father and English mum, can’t quite decide who he’ll root for during Saturday’s World Cup game between USA and England.
“I’d like to think I can support both teams, enjoying the spectacle,” he writes. “Except I know I won’t be. In my heart, I’m 90% certain that I’ll end up supporting the losing side, whoever that is. It’s going to be hard to love a triumphant Eng-er-lund, and equally hard to feel that the world’s last remaining superpower needs success in yet another field.”
Oh, come now, Marcel. You can never go wrong rooting for the underdog. (In this case, that would be the United States.)
