    The Canadian Men's Hockey team won Olympic Gold yesterday morning (after the Women's team had done the same a couple of days prior), so many people took to the streets to celebrate. Had the GR in tow to capture some of the fun.

    I miss these streets and the amazing hot dog vendors on them.

    Of course Canada owns hockey, that is obvious. :D
