The Final Five Minutes a Time Capsule

Hey Olympians,

It was so cool to be part of this board way before it happened — then it got crazy — then Boom, it's back to a core.

Specifically, I want to thank the Europeans for being here. This has been an thrivng United Nations of hockey brains, and it's been as much of a joy to share it with you as it was with the high-fiving joy-jumpers in Dundas Sq.

An Amazing Five-minute Jam:

A tip to all — (assuming you recorded it) If you ever want to show anyone what Hockey is . . . play them the last 5 minutes of the overtime with no whistles in a 4–on–4 Gold Medal game — and you'll also know why you were so on edge when it happened.

The last face-off of the game was 3 min. in — and it's one uninterrupted 4 1/2 minute all-star jam that flows from there until the goal. The different player combinations flying over the boards . . . the wild wide-open end-to-end hockey is just heart-stopping.

In a musical sense, this is the moment you play the gig to reach. This is five minutes of masters in the pocket, uninterruptedly skating & shooting & smashing for Gold.

It wasn't just the glory note — it's the 5 minute flow of the magic that led to it.

...and the Final Four Seconds. The Toronto Star did an analysis of what happened leading up to Sid's goal.
