Waves of emotion and weather took over Peel Street last night as Montrealers flocked to the closed-off road to root for the Raptors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

It was hot, sweaty, rainy, loud, and ultimately frustrating on Peel Street,Β but equally thrilling to see our city come together to root for potential history.

Though the street’s projector screen won’t win any ‘biggest screen awards,’ thunderous chants of “Let’s go Raptors” and “We the North” echoed through Montreal’s downtown core.

Rain started to drizzle over Jurassic Park Montreal during the fourth quarter, offering some apt pathetic fallacy for the Raps’ stunted comeback attempt.

There’s no word yet on whether Peel Street, or any other Montreal location, will set up an outdoor gathering for the rest of the series. Game 6 of the NBA Finals will take place this Thursday, June 13 at 9 pm ET.

If you didn’t get a chance to take part in the sport mob or if you want to see if you can spot yourself in the herd, check out how Instagram looked this morning after Peel Street’s Jurassic Park.
