Maybe my inferiority complex is nothing compared to yours, but I just don't see why both sides literally love to see the other fail lol.
The Americans have plenty of sports where they dominate (football, baseball, basketball, track...) plus they are contenders or favorites in virtually every other sport (volleyball, gymnastics etc).
All Canada really has is hockey (and curling lol). If the time ever came when the US passed Canada in hockey that would suck for us up here.
I honestly think that at the present time it's cocky for other teams to feel like they should be able to beat Canada in hockey. In most other Olympic sports a nation can qualify more than one team and Canada could field another team that would be a contender for the gold.
