As a Canadian currently living in the States, I can confirm this. It's sad and strange - it really does feel like people just don't care this much about anything down here. The feeling extends to concerts, sporting events, etc. Nothing unites this way, there's little space for such raw emotion, and people are always just a little bit guarded.

Couldn't make it downtown but drove through south Mississauga along the lake a few hours after the game. Not as many people as there would have been immediately after the game but still quite a few people outside.

Now imagine what Toronto will be like whenever the Leafs win the cup.

I've spent a lot of time in the States and would disagree. Americans are much more demonstrative than Canadians.

I would say that America has no sports/cultural event that binds like hockey in Canada. Some people are into football, others baseball etc. For Canada, the only sport we REALLY care about is hockey.

As well, because we are a smaller country that excels at it - hockey has become more important to our national psyche. Hence, the dread that people felt when it looked like we might not win.

I think he meant uniting the nation, more so than any specific city. The whole country is going bananas here.

Just got back from Downtown Vancouver. The atmosphere is ELECTRIC. I've never seen anything like this before and I don't think I ever will again. I hope us Vancouverites learn from all this and shed the 'No fun City' tag that's been dogging us.

I just got home from yonge and dundas!!! OMFGGG!! It's absolutely insane down there!. People breaking out in the Canadian anthem!! I joined in of course. A couple of guys climbed up the street posts and hung Canadian Flags. A chant of * SID THE KID, SID THE KID, SID THE KID, rang through the street. I've never felt so Canadian than tonight guys !!!. The patriotism I saw tonight was incredible. People high fiving random people it was great. A night I'll never forget.

GO CANADA GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOO!!!!!

There are a lot of people that don't seem to care about hockey or pay attention to it normally and then all of a sudden care when the Olympics happen. Not to be sexist, but it's mainly girls that act like they know everything about hockey and they seem to get so into it and then they'll disappear for the next four years.

Parade in Waterloo, ON:



Cop gets surrounded, ***** himself.



Haven't seen anything coming out of Quebec, which leads me to believe they've all died.
