Being only a couple hours away from a worldwide event like the OIympics, we couldn’t resist heading up to see for ourselves. I mean, the Olympics are something that happens in some exotic faraway land that you only watch from a distance on TV. But here they were in my backyard.
One of the US/Canada hockey games was happening that night, and when Canada scored a goal, the cheers rippled from inside the bars and into the overflowing streets filled with people straining to catch a glimpse of the action. The energy in the city was quite electric indeed!
