Bathos at the Olympics
February 23, 2014
Twenty years from now I wonder if anyone in Canada will talk about where he or she was during the gold medal hockey game at Sochi.
The experience was radically different during the 2010 medal game. The maple syrup crew had assembled in our living room, and we still remember our breathless anticipation leading up to Sydney Crosby’s climactic goal. We almost let the sap pan burn dry when the U.S. team tied it up and they went to overtime.
