Some good one's there. I'd add Monroe and Dali to my list too. :) (Er I think I mean Da Vinci) :D

Well I suppose I've supported Red Bull ever since DC joined the team (first season in F1) and even after he's left. I'd like to class them as underdogs :D

Our press is overly optimistic, we usually are the underdog.

I supported Tiger Tim for years :yes:

Exactly. Even in the build up to the latest ashes test the news readers were basically saying "we'll win".

It's the same at every Football or Rugby World Cup. As a Scot, we know we're going to get "humped" - it's in out psychy.

LOL You have a point, whereas Tiger Tim didn't really have much chance of winning anything, Murray has the potential (if he cheers up a bit).

I spend most of my time during big sporting events explaining to my family/friends, who are far less sports obsessed than me, why they're expecting too much. They listen to the news and think they have a grasp of what's going on despite not watching a single sporting event all year, they never learn to just ignore the hype :rolleyes:
