The sweet sound of victory
By Tamara Baluja
We saw the pictures. We saw the videos. We even heard the buzz that declared the game over. But did you hear the sound of the city in celebration?
A videographer posted a YouTube video of the deafening roar in Vancouver at the very moment that Sid Crosby scored the overtime winning goal in Sunday's Olympic men's hockey game. My personal favourite is the boat horns.
Now if only someone could have captured the sound of an entire nation in celebration...
Skip ahead to around the 1:15 mark to hear the cheers.
