File this Memory

I actually DO remember where I was during the game . . . Although my story really isn’t very exciting!
I was working for the City of Halifax at the time and one of my duties included filing . . . in what was usually a very quiet room. I arranged my day so I could take a radio to the file room when the game was on, and, as you can imagine . . . I had so many visitors, I barely got my work done . . . and yes . . . the filing room was much noisier that day! When Paul scored the winning goal, the entire department was in the filing room and everyone was cheering!
