That's why they do it.

And to boo it is extremely disrespectful to that country forefathers.

On top of that, it's amazing to me how so many younger generations have zero appreciation for the blanket of security the United States provided for Canada over the last century during very scary times and the sacrifices that were made to enjoy such a luxury.

Get a clue already.
I think that a long go round can be held regarding the realtions between our countries . I think that a hf board's probably not the right place.

I find anthem booing distasteful. I uderstand the indiviudual's right to show displeasure towards a country though. So, I'd argue with you but the fact is, I doubt that many of the 'fans' at the game have political agendas.

fwiw, my feeling towards some wonderful friends I have in the US have never changed. My feelings towards the country have though. Thing is, they're in the same boat.
