Red & white or red, white and blue. Maple leaf or Old Glory. Team Canada or Team USA. No matter which side you were cheering for Sunday afternoon for the Olympic Gold medal hockey game, it was a game to remember.
Hockey fans from both sides packed into the "Fox & Hound" pub in Colorado Springs to watch every goal on at least a dozen big-screen televisions. Canadians who work at NORAD reserved their own room so that they could cheer their team to victory without too many interruptions from their American friends.
A last-minute goal from the Americans and overtime made sure no one left until the game was over.
"As a Nova Scotian, to see Crosby score the winning goal was awesome for our country," says a teary Lt. Col. Pierre Viens.
"It's great to get together with family and watch the game," says USA Hockey fan Karl Grettenberger. "It's not the outcome we wanted but, I mean, it was a great game to watch."
