Ok, so that was a close hockey game! Canada had a nice, comfortable 3-0 lead and then the Slovaks scored two and I nearly died of five heart attacks1 . But thanks to Roberto Luuuuuuuongo2 and his awesome goaltending3, we are going to the gold medal game!
Here’s a photo of me watching the game at Robson Square:
Props to the nice volunteers who were handing out the plastic ponchos! It kept me from being entirely soaked – I was just nearly entirely soaked.
- I totally stole this line from @enniscath. Because it perfectly sums it up [↩]
- as an aside, I love watching hockey games where Roberto Luongo is playing with someone who has never seen him play before. Whenever he makes a save, the entire crowd stays yelling “Loooooooou!” and the new person gets very confused, “Why is everyone booing him?” [↩]
- I just typed that as “goldtending” at first. Freudian slip! [↩]
