Simon Greatwich and what cheering for him says about us

The FTW guys met Simon Greatwich during yesterday's taping. Richard del Rosario asked Simon to sign an Azkal jersey for his son. And it got me thinking: what does cheering for the Azkals say about us? That we're not that averse to Fil-Foreign athletes after all? That we recognize how grit comes in all shapes and forms? That being a Filipino winner is an evolving concept? That national teams/athletes outside of basketball can capture the imagination of fans if fans can actually watch them do it? MH
