Olympics loyalty

The London Olympics have finally started, and while I missed the opening ceremonies, I’ll try catch as much of the event as I can over the next two weeks.  I’ve always been a big fan of the Olympics.  I know it’s ridiculously expensive to host.  I know a lot of people dislike the Olympics.  But I enjoy seeing if my home country can do well.

However, I no longer live in my home country, Canada. I live in Japan, my wife is Japanese, and my daughter was born in Japan.  So, who do I cheer for?  Of course, I want Canada to do very well, but I also want Japan to do well.  I cheer for both countries.  Ever since I’ve come to Japan 7 years ago, I have cheered for Japan, as well as Canada.  I want my adopted country to do well.

Where do you live?  Who do you cheer for if you watch the Olympics?
