One year ago today: Canada wins Olympic hockey gold

 

Canada defeats USA in the gold medal hockey game -- the last game of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Vancouver police estimate there were between 100,000 and 150,000 people on the streets. Bus service had to be suspended.

I was asked to find Americans for a story, so I set about looking for people looking miserable. These two Californians were the first I came upon. Guy on the left said he lit his cigarette as soon as Canada scored. Guy on the right said no more than, "It was an amazing game, but-- fuck."

We won on Feb. 28, in the afternoon. This photo was taken at 12:30 a.m. the next day.
