Ryan Halkett's Olympic Blog
A native of Victoria, British Columbia, Halkett began his event-presentation career with the Vancouver Canucks. He returned to Vancouver this month to lead the group responsible for making hockey entertaining for the thousands of fans attending this year's Olympics.
This is Halkett's first Olympic experience, and he will be sharing his thoughts throughout the Games here on newyorkrangers.com. In the days to come, he will also be taking questions from fans here on the site. We invite Blueshirts fans to ask Ryan about his current Olympic experience and how it compares to his work with the Rangers.

There is so much anticipation for Sunday's game between Canada and Team USA. Late here at night in the streets, I saw Canadians singing "Ole, Ole, Ole" and the Canadian national anthem. Meanwhile, the U.S. fans were chanting "U-S-A, U-S-A" and battling back with the National Anthem.
I have included this photo of what the scene lookied like here, and you can see by the expression in this woman's face just how into it everybody is. The woman, by the way, came up to see the Olympics from her hometown of San Jose, Calif.
This was all happening late at night on the streets of Vancouver on the eve of the game, so I know it's going to be amazing atmosphere in there.
