Rooting for the Underdog
Bookmark and Share
This year we saw the achievement of the underdogs of Apollo Creed's son in the movie Creed, and Olympic ski jumper, Eddie the Eagle. This got us thinking about the Underdog story...is it uniquely American? Even when the heroes are not American, it seems we bring these stories to light and enjoy them. Is that true of every society throughout time? What is it about the stories of Underdogs that influence our pop culture, so that such stories are unending?
