WATCH: American fans react to T.J. Oshie winner
American fans were watching the USA play Russian in groups and they celebrated in groups when T.J. Oshie scored in the shootout to win it.
Americans were very excited for hockey on Saturday as their beloved Americans faced the vaunted Russians at the Winter Olympics. They packed bars across the country even if the game started at 7:30 a.m. in the east.
Americans were even more excited when T.J. Oshie scored in the eighth round of the shootout to give the USA a 3-2 win and a leg up in Group A. We have proof of this excitement.
This is what it looked like across America when Oshie scored. Jubulation. Now if we can continue to spread the message to turn those cameras/phones sideways, we'd really be in business. But these celebration videos never, ever get old.
And lastly, a pretty terrific still reaction via the Penguins:
Can't you just see the bald eagles soaring above while the fireworks explode and apple pie is consumed?
The Russian experience was juuuust a bit different as Bruce Arthur discovered in the Sochi press room.
