129. GOLD FOR CANADA!

What a day..I don't even know where to begin. I haven't had so much excitement in a single day in a long time lol. It's 1am and I can still hear car horns going off. So Canada won the gold today in men's hockey..I cannot be happier. It's so much more amazing since it was the final gold medal that resulted in us breaking the record for most golds for one country in the winter olympics, it was also the final game of the olympics, AND it was hockey - the one that mattered the most (to us anyways). Winning in OT against the Americans is even better. & especially Crosby for scoring the goal. I can just imagine all the bars across the country erupting right at that moment.

I ended up watching the game in my lobby bar. I wanted to go to Irish Embassy but I woke up late anyways and I'm pretty sure they would've been at full capacity. After the game we went out on the streets where cars were continuously honking their horns, everyone was waving Canadian flags & giving each other high fives. It was such a crazy/amazing experience.


My flag hanging on my window now :D



Dundas Square! I'm sure most people I know probably ended up here. It was so packed!! At one point we (literally) bumped into these bartenders from Pravda..we just looked at each other & went "PRAVDA!!!" hahah.
There were some people crowd surfing. People kept chanting "CA-NA-DA CA-NA-DA" At one point one of the crowd surfers fell to the ground..people gasped and went quiet. Suddenly he pops back up with his arms in the air as everyone began to chant "he's ok! he's ok!" It was funny.

Traffic was all messed up but it was so much fun. Definately seems like a once in a lifetime (or once in every 4, 8, 12 years?) experience. I can't really think of another day when people across Canada would celebrate like this. I guess in Toronto if we win the Stanley Cup this might happen again..which means it probably won't ever.

I'm really sad the olympics are over now. I'm not in the mood for school tomorrow. It should definately be a national holiday. I'm pretty sure most of the country will wake up to huge hangovers in the morning.
