We knew it was coming. We still weren't ready for it.
Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir announced earlier this week that they'd be performing to the Tragically Hip's "Long Time Running" at the Olympic figure skating gala.
The routine would be the last time Canadians and the world would get to see their beloved ice dance duo on the Olympic stage.
And when it happened Saturday night, we hung on every last gesture.
Every last lift.
Every last look.
You can watch their performance on CBC. And then maybe you can tell us what Scott said to Tessa just before they started skating, which was the subject of much debate:
Introducing the world to the brilliance of Gord Downie and The Tragically Hip is a stroke of genius and probably should get Virtue and Moir an Order of Canada or a Senate appointment or something. On top of the honour of being the most-decorated figure skaters to date.
Tessa and Scott performing to The Tragically Hip at exhibition is Canadian perfection. ]]>🇨🇦
