U is for Underdog

We like the underdog, not just the old cartoon though I do remember watching that one. People like to root for the one who looks like they might not make it, takes a lot of heart and struggle, but then is able to pull it through in the end. The one that in a bet doesn't have the greatest odds but through some reason wins.

1. a loser or predicted loser in a struggle or contest
2. a victim of injustice or persecution
3. someone who is not expected to win (1 reworded)

I definitely love to root for the underdog! It's a great feeling seeing someone work hard toward something and succeed, even when the odds were stacked against them.
