Dejection, TTC-style

It was about a quarter to five, and I was on the subway heading west, when the driver came on the P.A.:

"Attention passengers, I hate to have to tell you bad news, but Team Canada just lost to Russia in the quarter-finals of mens' Olympic hockey and has been eliminated."

And the entire train groaned as one.

I love my country.
