The difference is easy to isolate. The crowd cheers together ..U S A , U S A. Tell me, as Europe slowly dissolves into its individual components, where is the stadium chanting E UR O P E , E U R O P E? The Ryder Cup is as close as it gets.
Remember the "dollar is crashing" crowd? Remember the "there's too much debt" crowd? Listen to the crowd at the end of the national Anthem: U. S. A. -U. S. A....that's the difference.
