The Golden Goal

The roar rumbled from every corner of Canada about 3PM yesterday. Vancouver never looked better, the whole country never looked better. 'Sid the Kid' will live on as man and myth far into the future, if you live in Canada you'll see the goal replayed thousands of times in the media.The game had the largest TV audience in Canadian history. And it was a great hockey game.

Vancouver threw a great party, it'll take a while to come down, clean up, and re-normalize. The thing will have cost a fortune, as always it'll be paid for by those least able to pay, but it a hell of a party, a hell of a show. When the banners come down the homeless will still be homeless, the rich will still be getting richer, but it was a great party.
