Today was the Blue Jacket Flash Mob, to promote VANOC President John Furlong's new book Patriot Hearts* which is about the 2010 Olympic Games. There were 50 of us riding the sky trains this afternoon, much to the surprise of local commuters. Imagine their surprise when suddenly the doors opened and the cars were awash with a sea of blue! It was fun watching their reactions.
Here's a slide show of some of the photos I took. You can mouse over the images to view the captions.
When we got to Main Street Station, John Furlong himself was there to meet us and sign our copies of his book. He then joined us on the train, which was bearing his name and we rode to Waterfront. En route, as has become an Olympic tradition, we broke out into the singing of our national anthem. (Thought it was slightly off key, it was completely heartfelt.) John even joined in.
