    So you would support a team that you didnt root for previously because a Trini joined? Well no wonder all my yardie barbers followed the Knicks so hard back in the day.

    Ewing meh seh

    Well don't get me wrong, Ewing back in the day was the shishnit, but i don't see why not to support a fellow country team that is trying their best, its not like they have such competition to compete against like U.S. athletes do to compete with so many across the country. The national team may suck in certain sports, but it wouldn't hurt to root them on still for trying.

    Yes I will support my countrymen, not just in sports but also literature, academics, science, music, etc
    For example I dont follow golf or tennis but if one of my countrymen emerge as a top athlete in one of those sports I will become more engaged (not saying I may like it) in the sport, only to see him perform. Something special about a man/woman from the same neighbourhood, street, school, culture you emerged from now competing against the world for the country you came from.

    Now not many Trinbagonians follow boxing, but everyone in T&T supported this class act even non-boxing fans

    I have involvement in a wide range of categories already, so I don't think ill be paying attention to anything I don't care about because a Jamaican is active in the domain.

    I know in my heart yardies are playing a role in alot of things around the world.

    I imagine Americans aren't surprise by other Americans doing anything, but I guess for small Islands the surprising element of your fellow small Island national doing well in something you have no interest in may propel you (a small Island person ) to pay attention.

    I'll try to support and follow but if its something that I was never really interested in then the interest won't be consistent simply because a countryman/woman is participating.
