I are not a plural; we am a country!
It's Commonwealth Games time. A time when most of my countrymen (or country-people for the semantically-inflexible) forget their troubles and the fact that they voted for a republic and enjoy the medal-fest that occurs in the absence of the USA and most of Europe. And with the Games comes a wealth of sports commentary gold.
Before the closing ceremony comes along, why not play the Singular/Plural Disagreement Drinking Game? It's very simple - whenever you hear a commentator refer to a single country or a team as a plural, you take a drink (and they say I don't know how to have fun). I bet you'll be plastered before the first medal presentation of the day. Look out for phrases like:
"Australia have a good medal chance in this event."
"The synchronised swimming team are really going for it."
"Jersey were proud just to have participated."
Picky? Me? I are not that bad...
