US by a mile.
'Tebow Time' and 'Linsanity' are just two examples of stupendous, jingoistic overhype. Neither of them have got close to a superbowl or a ring since
Jeremy Lin was playing great ball and sinking insane shots, it was just fun to watch, I don't think overhype. obviously in basketball any change in team dynamic from season to season can totally ruin your mojo.
and Tebow actually has some real talent but the media is out to get him for his over the top religious arc. hard to say who's worse the Brits or the Americans, but at least the Americans have a lot of different sports and players to spread it out between. what do the Brits have, David Beckham, that golfer Rory, and Andy Murray? probably why it seems worse
