think about it. Wang didn’t start playing little league baseball when he was a kid for his country. He did it cause he liked baseball. nobody puts in the work it takes to become a world class athlete for country. they might say that when they’re getting the gold medal, but they really do it for themselves, to be all they can be, which is the way it should be.
so now jimmy wang is on TV and all you hear is about Taiwan’s glory and for Taiwan this and that. if i was him, I would just say “fuck all this. I did it for myself and my family. you’re all from my country, I love my countrymen and need your support, but fuck this nationalistic crap”. That’s what I’d say.
