Well, it's a bit awkward to be pointedly nationalistic in Canada when you're living in the shadow of Big Daddy Down South. The Americans are so rich and so numerous that they can sometimes beat us in things they barely care about.

For example, Canada is utterly mad about hockey, but when the Canadian national team plays the American national team, it's quite possible the US wins, even though hockey is only the fifth or sixth most popular sport there.
