It's such a mixed blessing being Brazilian and Canadian, especially when it comes to sports. Canada is a world super-power when it comes to ice hockey. Brazil is the world super-power when it comes to football/soccer. Both nations expect/demand championships in their respective sports. When we win, we are happy because things are as they should be. When we lose, however, we are crushed, inconsolable.
Today, Canada is enjoying the fact that we are on top of the world again, as we should be. My Brazilian half is hoping to have the same feeling this coming summer.
