Canada's Women's Hockey team celebrated a much deserved gold medal on Thursday after beating perennial rivals the U.S. 2-0. Members of the team, returned to the ice some 30 minutes late and held a kegger held a tasteful celebration with a bit of beer and some champagne. This being an Olympics on home soil, you think the IOC would cut us a little bit of slack. After all, the City of Vancouver and Canada have rolled out the red carpet for these overpaid Swiss bureaucrats.
From our Vancouver Now page:
he International Olympic Committee will investigate the behaviour of the Canadian women's hockey players who celebrated their gold medal at the Vancouver Games by drinking alcohol on the ice.
Several Canadian players returned to the ice surface at Canada Hockey Place roughly 30 minutes after their 2-0 win over the U.S. on Thursday night.
The players drank cans of beer and bottles of champagne, and smoked cigars with their gold medals draped around their necks.
That is ****ing awesome. the IOC and anyone bitching needs to go pound them some sand. This is the nature of hockey.....
From our beer league tournaments, (we won an A division AC tourney 3 years in a row), right up to the stanley cup and now these women in the olympics....
This is how we hockey players do....
Congrats Canada.... We'll get you in the mens!
