    That's it - going downtown on Sunday morning to watch the gold medal hockey game at Robson Square in Vancouver with a few thousand others chanting "LLoooooooooooouuuuuuuuuu."

    Three golds and a bronze - good day for Canada! Now if the USA Men's hockey would be so generous as to lose tomorrow, we'll break the all-time gold medal record at a winter games.

    Hi world? This is Canada. Please don't call us between noon and 3pm tomorrow (PST) as no one will be around to answer. We have a nation-wide prior commitment.

    kthxby.

    I'm already pacing and there's still 6 hours until game time. I'm finding it comforting looking at our lineup, despite their play early in the tournament we do have an incredible team.:bounce:

    I'm praying for a big game from Crosby. Players like him have the ability to crank it up a notch in situations like this...

    In order to shake off some of the Hockey fever and regain my refined cosmopolitan air, I traveled to NYC yesterday to pick up some things for cosmetic couture. Then I met a friend for Korean barbecue at a shi shi frou frou restaurant off of Times Square. The Canada game was on the tele there high above the array of fine liquors. :D This is getting nuts folks!

    Yeah yeah, I'll be watching. Looks like a good chunk of the American populace will be too.

    Good on you, Canada... that was a clean goal.

    Fucking awesome game, even though we lost.

    Agreed - and I now have deep man-love for Luongo and Crosby. Seriously.

    What an exclamation point to our games... I can hear people on the street cheering and I live in the frakking subburbs!

    Holy damn.

    Luongo wasn't really on his game tonight, though- he was very slow on the recovery on several shots. I'm shocked that he didn't let more by.

    Yup...Sometimes I impress myself! lol

    I love you USA, but we just couldn't lose this one. Miller for MVP, hands down...

    Me too, and I don't care how that sounds!

    Greatest moment ever!!!:bow::D

    I don't usually watch hockey or any other sport, but I was completely entertained and on edge for those three hours, it was amazing. I'd love to be in Canada tonight.

    Shatner has been the best part of these closing ceremonies - my world is officially topsy-turvy, lol.
