Not every event has to be gripping

Yesterday, I "went to hockey" and was happy to watch the US defeat Norway 6-1. I suppose the game was not even close by NHL standards, but the crowd danced during the intermissions, waved at the cameras, and stayed until the final buzzer in spite of the lopsided score. I suppose this "laissez faire" attitude may change during the medal rounds, but it was nice to be among people who went to the rink, hoping for a good game, and being satisfied with a good time.
