On Tuesday the 16th, I had the pleasure of experiencing an Olympic event live. It was the women's hockey game between USA and Russia held at UBC Thunderbird Arena. I was happy to see a nice mix of fans from the US, Russia, Canada, etc. Unfortunately, with Canada and USA being so dominant in the sport, it makes for very little drama in games that those two teams aren't competing against one another.
The result in this game was 13-0 for the US and I think that score flatters Russia since, it appeared to me, the US took it easy on them towards the end. Resulting in only scoring one goal in the third period. Nevertheless, it was fun to feel the Olympic "buzz"
