Where were you?
In my house screaming of joy due to the goal.
Is it really that sort of moment? I mean at this point in time? It's been only a year.
I was watching, as a Pens fan, in Morgantown, WV while surrounded by Rangers, Flyers, Devils, etc. fans in my fraternity house. It was depressing watching Canada win, but it was admittedly entertaining watching them want to stab themselves in the eye after it happened. The fact that Crosby scored it made it that much worse for them.
In front of a teevee. All that matters.
Sisters 18th birthday, so we were watching it together as a family.
I was in a Bar in the Casino at the Atlantis, 4/5th of the people in the bar were Canadian.
I know, 2002 was big for me because we hadn't won it in 50 years, but 2010..meh.
It was a soft goal in an exhibition game, not 9/11.
In my house screaming about time you showed up Sid!
I liked Feb 26, 2006 and Feb 27, 1994 better.
I remember hearing a lot from Americans that they didn't mind losing to Canada but "why did it have to be crosby!"
I was pacing back and forth in my friend's basement watching it with my wife and with his wife and him. When Parise scored the tying goal I was nervous and I remember rants in the intermission like: "If they don't score here they'd better give their NHL salary back." Or "This is the moment of truth on how much they love their country." Yeah I was passionate.
But when the goal scored we all jumped and hugged one another. My friend yelled, "Who was it, Iginla?" I said: "It was Crosby!"
One of the most exhilirating moments in my life was watching that goal go in. 2002 was pretty special in a lot of ways too (I just watched the replay of the gold medal game the other day) but there wasn't that one memorable moment that everyone will be talking about in 50 years. The closest in the 2002 game was Iginla's goal to make it 4-2
watching the game with about fifteen friends in my buddies basement. When the goal was scored we all went nuts, my buddy mauled me as I was getting up to celebrate and I swear my hip disolcated for a moment!!
You must have seen the television ratings for the game? Those don't happen by accident.
I was at a relatives place who has HD.
In a bar with lots of Canadians fans predicting that Crosby would be the one getting the goal
Being interviewed for medical school. Despite my best efforts not to find out the result until I could watch on ctvolympics.ca...yeah right.
Spilling my drink all over myself on my couch.
And you say you are a rational poster who has no hatred for Sidney Crosby
I was home watching the game with some friends and I jumped from my seat as soon as Crosby scored. I screamed "Sidney *** Crosby" about 20x in a row afterwards.
Sitting right in front of the big screen in a pub in Edmonton.
I disagree with you, a fan of his team, about how significant his goal was. I don't see how that proves I'm irrational and have hatred.
I've never put much investment in the Olympics because the teams are together for such a short period of time, the players don't care as much as they do the stanley cup playoffs, the single game elimination makes it so chance based, and it's a media-***** bandwagon frenzy for people who don't care about or understand hockey.
Crosby is an amazing player but that goal is incredibly overplayed. He was not very good in the Olympics and the goal was a weak five-hole. Give me his performance against Washington in 2009 or several other moments if I'm fondly remembering Crosby at the top of his game.
But hey, I watch hockey for the hockey itself, not to find things that would be good for posters in my bedroom or for something to talk about at the water cooler. I must be irrational.
Just an exhibition game...
At the airport, picking up my ex-girlfriend.....Yaaa
And if you're wondering I could not find a tv either.
At my sister in law's house watching with my wife, son, wife's sister, her husband, his son, their exchange student, her boyfriend, and two friends of the husband's. House went into complete chaos on the floor, my 7-year-old nephew ended up tackling me and about 5 or 6 of us ended up in this weird hug while lying on the floor. It was pretty awesome.
