I spent a number of days travelling during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, and on more than one occasion, I commandeered the TV in the lobby of the hotel to show the hockey game. (For those that know me, I have a history of commandeering buses in order to get where I need to go. So a TV is relatively easy, even if there’s no remote. )
For the Canada – German Men’s Hockey game we had a couple co-workers, myself and various Canadians that were staying in the hotel, sitting around the lobby TV drinking some beer and watching the game. And then it happened – Shea Weber’s amazing “Puck Through the Net” goal. If you didn’t watch this game, you NEED to watch the clip CTV has posted on YouTube. They clearly show the puck passing through the net. INCREDIBLE. What the video doesn’t show is the when the referee skated over to the net and checked to make sure it wasn’t damaged in any way. There was two black marks on the mesh where the puck passed through, but the net remained intact.
Unfortunately,, CTV is not allowing the video to be embedded into other sites. So you’ll have to click over to YouTube to see this in action. Trust me, it’s worth watching!
