This late night post is brought to you by the Canadian men's hockey team and the Vancouver 2010 Closing Ceremonies.
Your prompt: emotional roller coaster.
Mine shall be a recap of my thoughts during the gold medal hockey game this afternoon. I didn't do this while watching the game, but it's all pretty vivid for me still.
Man, Canada versus U.S.A. on the last day of the Olympics. This is either going to be a great end to the games or put a real downer on things.
Canada goes up 1 to 0
Canada goes up 2 to 0
The U.S. score to make it 2 to 1
Alright then, game on.
Hang on... hang on... maybe score one more for some breathing room? Hang on...
The U.S. score with 25 seconds remaining
Between the 3rd Period and Overtime
It's not a big deal if Canada loses. I'll get over it pretty quickly. It's just a hockey game.
Man, who am I kidding?
(I'm watching the online video stream, which has a delay)
Why are there horns honking outside? Did... no... did they?
Thirty seconds later
No, the stream can't be that delayed. Oh, people are cheering now... did...
Canada turns the puck over in their own end, a U.S. player has a clear shot on net
If those are Americans I hear cheering I'm going to be hella pissed.
Big save, Canada takes it back the other way
More honking and cheering? Did they... come on... come on...
Sidney Crosby scores the game winning, gold medal winning, Canada winning goal
*total freak out*
