The Olympics-The experience
We did line up for the Yaletown Livesite. There was airport type security to get in, which was what was slowing things down. We watched some curling on the big screen, went into the Samsung and Acer pavilions. The Samsung was a waste of time, and the Acer, well we weren't too much into playing computer games, so didn't stick around in there. A huge lineup for the Coke pavilion, so skipped that one.
Next we wandered up the streets. Several were closed to vehicular traffic, and were crowded with lots of people in hockey jerseys, or whatever red clothing they happened to own. A men's hockey game was on at the time, so as we walked past restaurants, all we could see were hockey jerseys and tv screens.
