The Definition of Awesome: Gold medal game delays flight

It’s a short article and that’s because the point is made quite quickly. And in the words of my cousin, who works for Fox News in Washington D.C., can you blame them?

Here’s the story from the Ottawa Citizen:

Flying fans refuse to walk out on game

Air Canada was forced to delay a flight from Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Olympics because passengers watching the end of men’s hockey final on airport televisions ignored repeated calls to board. “We incurred a flight delay for a reason Air Canada had not yet encountered in over 72 years of existence,” Air Canada chief executive Calin Rovinescu said.

If I were on that flight, I’d be right beside those passengers glued to the TV screen, hanging on every moment of the gold medal in the waiting!
