Who's your daddy, USA?
Canada! Thats who :)
We had been saving seats at JackAstors on front since an hour before the game started. It was sheer madness inside with hockey fans and everyone dressed in patriotic reds. It got intense when US scored a second time in the last 20 seconds of the third round, tying the score. I think got even more nauseous with anxiety. Unusual for a non-sport fan like me. But 7 minutes into over-time Crosby scored a win!
And just like that Canada won Hockey gold for the first time on home-soil for Winter Olympics. We also won the most number of gold medals for any host country in the history of Winter Olympics. How cool is that? This must be how USA feels all the time!
As we poured onto front street, we were faced with hundreds of fans like these.
Then we walked up along Yonge, hi-fiving other fans on the sidewalks, pouring onto the streets with EVERY car honking along to cheer us on and random renderations of the national anthem.
R and I posing with the flag and some random hockey fan!
Until we hit Dundas square...and saw more.
The party is still going on as I type.
