ah, got it. why do you europeans despise spaniards so much? i never understood that.
Spaniards have won a bit too many big sporting events the past few years, up to the point where they started calling themselves the greatest sporting nation on earth.
I love Spain as a country and have nothing against any individual Spaniard, but seeing them fail at the Olympics is funny.
There's a general animosity between several European countries, but it's nothing serious. It's much better to mock each other a bit than to declare war every other generation as Europe has done for centuries.
