I can't believe I spent 5 hours just walking around the same 3 blocks in downtown Vancouver soaking in every moment of it.

As for TO, I was there when they won the World Cup of Hockey against Finland at the ACC. That was quite the spectacle as well.

I love Canada!

Ehhhh, don't feel bad! I live only 40 minutes from Van and didn't go downtown once for the Olympics. If I can live nearby and miss it, so can you!

We rioted last time the Canucks went to the Cup Finals. I think the large number of police downtown did a good job of diffusing any situations. They seemed relatively amiable and good-natured when I was in Vancouver and that does a drunken crowd a lot of good.

vancouvers been partying it up like this every night for the last 2 weeks
ive randomly gone downtown on 6 or 7 nights just to walk the streets, always packed, patriotism is through the roof, drunk rowdies, its something well never see in this city again

BUT MY GOD DID TODAY'S CELEBRATION PUT THE OTHERS TO SHAME
they stopped running skytrains to downtown for a while because there were too many ppl downtown
and a lot of the major streets were already shut down because of the enormous amount of ppl that would be walking around, but they shut even more down today
at most intersections it was so packed you had to stand around for up to 10 minutes just waiting for a small path to open up in which you couild force yourself through the crowd

never been so proud to be a canadian
these 2 last weeks have been the greatest of my life
vancouver wont be the same without the olympics

Are people high-fiving every single stranger that passes them, hugging cops (seriously...), crowdsurfing, dancing in the street to random music, dangling from lamp posts, standing at the same spot for 20min+ because they literally can't move an inch, breaking into random renditions of the national anthem, screaming at the top of their lungs non-stop, and doing this for TEN straight hours in Vegas? I've been to Vegas for New Years and the crowds are huge but it's can't even register close to this in terms of noise or atmosphere, or the feeling of relief/elation/joy/pride in every person there. I'm not sure what you imagine Canada going ******* should look like short of a full scale riot.

Oh man I was at Yonge and Dundas square right when we won it, it was so crazy, I was hammered and my right arm is completely sore from all the high fives. What a night

Yes, a hockey game really is that significant in Canada. Canada winning Olympic Gold in Hockey IS the most significant sporting moment in Canadian History.

You sound like a sore loser!

I went down at around 7 and everyone was losing it. I was able to get a few big chants going and the crowd at Yonge and Dundas Sq was ridiculous. People were crowd surfing and everything.

What a great night, and now I have no voice and have to go to work haha

this is what we meant Hockey is Canada's game...
we're not being cocky and it has nothing to do with who beats who. Its about the passion, every canadian shares for the sport.

As ive mentionned already, seeing in Montreal everyone cheer and wave their Canadian flags... you never see that on canada day in quebec lol.
