Now don't get me wrong, I'm as patriotic as the next guy, but this dude is the bomb. Dutch speedskating coach Jillert Anema was wrangled into an interview/battle of wits with a couple of unarmed CNBC show hosts. CNBC's Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and "Squawk Box" host Joe Kernen were so totally obnoxious with this guy, it's amazing he put up with it.

He makes a good point saying that when we come charging in with our over-blown expectations that we'll sweep medals, it's not surprising that the American teams, and fans for that matter, end up dejected when we don't win everything.

I really like his push-back about having 'medal-envy'. He actually is a pretty good sport considering the badgering the two American dimwits were handing out.
