In Canada, it feels like every WJC morphs into just such a nasty animal. If some of us Canucks aren’t grumbling under our breath about the two non-Canadians who are permitted to play on a CHL team each season, we’re ripping non-Canadian fans for cheering against Team Canada.
Some of us seem to want nothing short of a Canadian coronation in every WJC – and we also want all our vanquished opponents to shower us with superlatives. And, should Canada not win a gold medal, the suggestion is that it is something Canada did wrong, not something the victorious country did right.
That is a nicer way of saying it
