It's obvious that some folks place ethnicity over the local sports team. I just don't understand why anyone would do that.

I certainly don't cheer for Tristan Thompson when he's in town because while wearing a Cavs jersey, he represents Cleveland (not Canada).
Hopefully you don't take this the wrong way, but you probably don't understand what it's like because you're either westernized or were born here in North America to a family that's been here for a while.

Canadian pride isn't really as genuine compared to other countries IMO, because countries like Canada are a variety of different cultures mixed together into one. Unlike others where there is for the most part; one dominant ethnicity. This makes it a little awkward in terms of... how should I say... "categorization"?

This is difficult to explain in a way in which it won't offend anyone so I'd rather not continue lol. I think you catch my drift.
