Go Canada!

A big congrats to the Canadian Women’s Hockey team, who played a fantastic game to beat the USA women for the gold last night.

And by God they earned the right to have a few beers on ice

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — The IOC will investigate the behavior of Canadian women ice hockey players who celebrated their gold medal by swigging beer and champagne on the ice.

Players came back onto the ice more than half an hour after the 2-0 victory over the United States on Thursday. Still in their uniforms and with gold medals draped around their necks, they drank from bottles of champagne and cans of beer and smoked cigars.

Gilbert Felli, the IOC’s executive director of the Olympic Games, said he was unaware of the incidents until informed by an Associated Press reporter.

“If that’s the case, that is not good,” Felli said. “It is not what we want to see. I don’t think it’s a good promotion of sport values. If they celebrate in the changing room, that’s one thing, but not in public. We will investigate what happened.”

Why shouldn’t they celebrate in public? You, Sir, are an ass who sorely needs a laxative.

Canadian Women Incurring The Wrath Of The IOC

I’ll buy them their next beer.

    Couldn’t agree more. Post game celebrations should be a little wild but I don’t think this qualifies as even a little wild. There is nothing to be done here. Leave them alone and I offer my congrats to them as well.

    I think they should be disqualified. Why? No one took thier top off, I’m pretty sure when you win a gold medal in a womens team sport somone has to rip off her top and run around. I’ts called the Hamm rule I think.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    Now that’s a very valid point, Bill.

  4. Dave E. says:

    If you rip your top off AND have a beer in hand it’s the Hamm’s rule. I remember it from college.

    The fans had left, what’s the big deal? I wonder what offended them most, the beer or the cigars. Bunch of sourpuss prigs.

  5. JeffS says:

    Meh, what a bunch of priggs.

    Or else this IOC is P.O’d cuz the ladies didn’t invite them for a beer. In which, what a bunch of losers.

  6. JeffS says:

    Well, maybe this is the IOC’s problem.

    Just sayin’.

  7. Gunslinger says:

    The IOC is probably composed of pansy lightweights that would pass out at the mere smell of an alcoholic beverage.

    Someone send them a case of Canadian Club with a note attached that says “Shut up!”

  8. Retread says:

    Maybe the women DID invite the IOC to the party and that’s what scared them.

  9. Kate P says:

    If it was a matter of “Don’t party on our ice,” fine. But don’t celebrate, period? Are they kidding?

    Dental Dams are probably more
    in demand with some

    Well, i really have to say that i looked at some of awesome games the past week. Although i have to comment that it isnt said our neighbours shall win easy from the US. Once again Canada won with some luck tonight from Slovakia. The US will win sunday with 3-1! Another thing: Hey Crosby! Get a laugh on your face man!

  12. Gilbert Pelli needs to shut the puck up.

    Hmph. I have seen footage of Battlin’ Billy Smith skating around the Nassau Coliseum ice with a Bud after the fourth Cup win in 1983. And frankly, these are the same joyless noodges who wanted to ban patriotic mask art in a venue where the winners are given gold medals in front of the losers while their national anthem is played.

    These folks don’t know hockey, or hockey players.
