CP: 80 per cent of TV sets tuned in to Canada-U.S. final

"Four of every five television sets -- 80 per cent -- that were turned on in Canada during the gold-medal contest Feb. 24 were tuned into the afternoon game, the CBC said Thursday in a brief release on its final Olympic TV audience ratings."

EIGHTY percent? Holy shit, that's staggering. As the article suggests, it shows how important that game was to Canadians. Our national pride was on the line, 100%. (Americans: trust me on that.)
