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.
This story made me break out into a grin so wide that the top of my fucking head nearly fell off. Check this out:
In a statement released late Thursday, Hockey Canada apologized for the on-ice party.Canadian through and through.
"The members of Team Canada apologize if their on-ice celebrations, after fans had left the building, have offended anyone," the statement read.
Thank you Team Canada. Thank you Hockey Canada. Thank you CBC.
