Do you root for the underdog?

Asked by tinyfaery (42012points) August 9th, 2008

Of course, I’m watching the Olympics. I’m finding that I am not rooting for America, or the supposed favorite, but the team/person who is chasing the leader. I guess I just like a “come from behind” story. Who do root for?

When it’s “my” team in the running, I’m for them. Once “we’re” out of it, I’m in favor of the underdog, every time.

I’m almost always for the underdog.

If I don’t have a horse in the race then I tend to pull for the underdog. I’ve never been a fair weather fan or one to jump on the band wagon.

Wait. You don’t mean Shoeshine Boy (Underdog’s alter ego), did you?

No. But, where is underdog when you need him?

Giving it to Polly Purebred, I’d bet.
