Golden Experience
Vancouver 2010
Winter Olympics
Just to get a feel for the whole Olympics experience, we decided to visit the box office.
Big decision!  As it turned out, there were 'suite' tickets available for the US vs Canada Gold Medal women's hockey game.  For a small fortune, we were able to attend a fantastic Olympic event together at Canada Place.  You should have seen the looks on the boys' faces when we told them we would be going to a Gold Medal game!
Security was tight, but the lines were very well managed and people were so friendly and compliant.

Here's the view from our suite (sweet!) seats at Canada Place.

The crowd was absolutely ALIVE with (mostly Canadian) pride and excitement.
The stands were a sea of red, and the pre-game noise was almost unbearable.

Then the game started, and the noise truly became almost unbearable!
The Canadian Cow Bell Factor was well out of any reasonable decibel range!
We had to keep our ears plugged to stop the obnoxious COW BELL frenzy from giving us
permanent hearing damage!

You can imagine the uproar when Canada took Gold...
It was a tremendous electric excitement.
The bonus was being able to watch the bronze, silver and gold medal awards being presented.
The medal ceremony was so dignified and honorable.

Our gold medal experience will last a lifetime!

So cool that you got to see this game! I can't imagine a better place to feel the Olympic experience than a gold medal hockey game in Canada. Wow!
