I've never understood the mentality that people should cheer for the country they happen to be from.
Most people don't get to choose where they are born. If you don't have a choice in something, what is there to be proud of?
Nationalism is silly. Saying I'm Canadian is as relevant to me as saying I have a certain colour hair, or am of a certain height, or was born on a certain date. I don't cheer for people just because they have same same hair colour, or are my height, or were born on the same day as me. And I don't necessarily cheer for people born in the same place as me, either. "Canadian" is a description of what I am. It's not who I am.
