So I’m watching game 3 of the Boston Bruins–Montreal Canadiens series of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and something stood out to me as I watched the singing of the National Anthems. The arena got louder when the Canadian National Anthem was sung. Canadians sing their hearts out when their National Anthem is sung.
I think I first noticed this when my wife and I went up to see the Vancouver Canucks play. Clearly everyone around us was Canadian. Not only did the people around us sing the US National Anthem, they sang theirs, albeit louder. What does that say about us in the US? What does that say about the Canadians?
