My patriotism has me rooting for the US hockey team but I would feel really bad for Canada if they didn’t get the gold. It would become a national obsession. They would spend the next four years hating the team that beat them. Michigan Gov. Grandholm doesn’t seem to have a problem rooting for America:

“The U.S., come on!” Granholm said jokingly during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”
“I left Canada when I was four!”

Update: OOPS! Sorry, Canada! USA takes it 5 to 3.
