i agree that dana was at fault for booking it as USA vs. Canada, but wanting someone to win just because he's from the same country as you isn't patriotic. patriotism is loving your country and doing things to better it. not cheering for someone that happens to have the same citizenship as you. i have to say that if only the americans won in MMA, it would be a pretty boring sport. i'd cheer for GSP to win if he was fighting george washington.
