Good to know, because it sounded like you were. My bad

Hockey is a religion in Ontario and Quebec, and I would be surprised if it wasn't like that anywhere else in Canada

Word. I'll admit, though I love hockey, football will always be my #1 sport so winning the SB would be the ultimate sports win. You guys care more about hockey than I ever will so I say party like there's no tomorrow.

They closed a part of Yonge street (from around Queen and north of Queen). There was a mini street hockey game going on when I walked by. Lots of happy people, Canadian flags, apparel and chants. Great atmosphere, reminded me of Edmonton's 06 playoff run when I was there.

Also, part of Front street and University is closed (near Union station).

I remember in 2002 when we won the Gold the celebrations on the street was crazy, and that was only in Hamilton, so imagine how crazy it is in Toronto right now, I wish I was there.

I know you're joking, but I was just down on St. Cats and there was a great celebration. As soon as the streetlights turn red hundreds of people flock the street and dance around, and when they go green again everyone yells "CAR!" and go back to the sidewalks.

Wow, It's absolutely electric here. Might have to savour this as we all know that there won't be a cup in T.O for a long time

Just got back home from Yonge and Dundas. My hat and scarf got swiped right off me amidst the chaos. I'm seething from that, but I have to admit it was an amazing party... I live right on Dundas Square, and the honks, cheers and spontaneous Oh Canada's are pretty amazing.

I can tell you that I was at Yonge and Bloor about 30 minutes ago, and the celebrations going on were UNBELIEVABLE. People were dancing in the Street, literally. Every 20 seconds when the Crosswalk flashed, 300 people would run out into the street and start cheering, jumping up and down. It was unbelievable.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: It all depends on Men's Hockey Gold. Win that, and everything else is a success too.
