I was up in NY yesterday for some business meetings and decided to do an early morning run in the park and i ran into this guy:
If only I'd run with my phone, I could prove it. When I asked who was a better 1500 prospect for gold in 2024 - Kerr or Wightman, he said, "Ingebrigtsen baby."
I was momentarily taken back and said, "Aren't you supposed to root for your own subjects in the Olympics?" He said, "Do you know how stifling it is to have the randomness of your birth control everything about you - where you live, what your job is, etc. It's so refreshing to just pick my own sports fandom. I'm a HUGE fan. Plus I'm allowed to root for Norwegians as we are family. Their king is my cousin. King Herald's great grand parents Edward and Alexandra are my great-great-great grandparents."
