For club, I would agree with this. Since I'm not a huge fan of the Impact yet, but when I cheered for Manchester United (part of the Ronaldo bandwagon) it's true that I did not feel as excited when they won the championship (both premiership/champions league) as I would if it was the Habs.
However, internationally.. when Portugal went all the way to the finals in 2004, you bet your ass I was excited as hell.. and disappointed as hell when they lost.
But yeah, I'd take Habs winning the cup over Portugal winning the cup ANY DAY.
