I was at a friend's house, there were about 6-7 of us. For the record I live in Toronto and my friend lives at VP and Lawrence..just wanted to premise that. When Crosby scored we all jumped up and down and hugged each other and high fives and all that. Then we packed up a school bag full of beer and drove downtown and celebrated with everyone at Dundas Square. Cops didn't do a **** that night. We were all drinking outside cops didn't do a damn thing. They knew what was up. It was the best sporting experience/moment of my life. And it gave a little preview of what could happen when the Leafs win the Cup the city is going to insane!!!!!!!!!

Watching a stream on my computer (didn't have cable) by myself. Nobody else cared.

smoky bar in my 2010 jersey with casual fans and non-fans who really got into it after Parise tied it.

In a bar in College Park, MD my junior year at the University of Maryland. Watched with a ton of people that started off being casual and turned into a raucous environment. That day will always stick in my mind because of the unbelievable tension in the bar and the pure madness that erupted when Parise tied it. Even more so, I think that's the day that saw the most casual fans turn into hockey fans. Very cool to see buddies of mine who were not into hockey at all get ignited by the tournament firstly but specifically the gold medal game.

Certainly hope we see as much passion this time around.

At the game, sitting behind this guy. He spent a lot of time screaming "you suck, Crosby!" I took this picture about 20 seconds after Crosby scored in OT.

albeit less drama this year, yesterday's win is still a very comforting and elated feeling.

luckily for us, the game started at 8pm Hong Kong time, watched the game at Eastside Tavern, a true hockey bar in Hong Kong of all places.

nothing beats the feeling of watching the game with fellow Canadians anywhere in the world, hugging an high-fiving each other and singing Oh Canada

I was in the German House near Canada Place in Vancouver with 200 other people! The TV went black just as Crosby scored! Someone said we won! We sang oh Canada & we are the champions! And then celebrated with hordes of other people on Robson & Granville!!

I work nights, so I got off work at 7 am went across the parking lot to Boston Pizza and watched the game with 70-100 other people. The bar was packed by the time I got in. It felt kind of weird being buzzed at around 9 am but it was worth it!!! It was an awesome game and an awesome feeling once again just like it was in 2010 and 2002. The best part of it all was high fiving, and singing O Canada with everyone!!

We were near Holguin, Cuba. A few days before the game I started asking if they were going to show the Olympic Gold Medal game on the TV. They had no idea there were olympics even being played. We tried to find somewhere in Holguin that would show it but it just wasn't happening.

I "watched" the gold medal game, poolside, with about a dozen Canadians, waiting for text messages to come in on a guy from Antigonish, Nova Scotia's cellphone, from his dad. He would text about every 5 minutes to tell us what was happening. It sounds lousy as hell, but I'll never forget it.

Was in my first year of University in the Robson House lounge at UBC. One of the most memorable days in my life.
