Most Vancouver fans either weren't able to secure a ticket to tonight's Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, nor were they willing to pay the cost of two kidneys and some other body parts to get a ticket. Most decided to join 100,000 of their friends to watch the game. What does 100,000 people watching a game look like?
Here's one of many aerial pictures posted by Global BC's Leah Holive:
Vancouver has a population of 1,953,252 people according to the 2006 census, so that means that approximately five percent of the city's population is on Georgia Street right now.
Considering fans rioted in Vancouver after the Canucks lost in Game 7 in 1994, trying to be a police officer in Vancouver could be an experience tonight. At least most of the fans had to buy their liquor a few hours ago. If they win tonight, those same police officers could be partying right alongside the fans. Much like St. Patricks day in some cities.
