The olympics were amazing. The best part about them was lurking about in an ocean of humanity for days on end and not seeing so much as a dirty look. Everybody was happy, all the time. 5 hour lineups to zip line? Hooray! Rain during outdoor showings of games? Hooray! Granted, if we'd lost a crucial hockey game the collective mood's color cast might've darkened a shade or three, but overall I'm still in shock that people forgot that they hated each other, if only for a couple weeks. Let's do the olympics in Vancouver again next year!
The pic above is us watching the mens semi final hockey game in the rain at Robson Square. The province handed out rain ponchos for us to wear. In yellow. Thanks, Canada. Before this game was the womens curling gold medal match against Sweden, and we all looked like we were cheering for Sweden.
Cookie Monster and a couple of Teletubbie pals came out for the party.
So did, uh....Captain Canuck?
Even Batman and Robin showed up for the festivities.
