A Proud Canadian

In more Olympic hockey-related news, apparently the International Olympic Committee is upset with the behavior of the Canadian women's hockey team after they won the gold medal (mouse over the link for a chuckle: "hockey women drinking"--sounds like a Canadian version of Girls of Spring Break or something). According to the article,
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.

Erotica Canadiana: until now, spoken of only in whispered tones.

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.

"The members of Team Canada apologize if their on-ice celebrations, after fans had left the building, have offended anyone," the statement read.
Canadian through and through.

Thank you Team Canada. Thank you Hockey Canada. Thank you CBC.


  1. Disgraceful. You wouldn't catch an American athlete behaving in that fashion. I hear they tried to jumpstart a Zamboni, too.

  2. What a classless, trashy way to act! I can understand being excited to have won the gold medal, but they crossed the line and were TOO exuberant. The women’s hockey team totally embarrassed itself after playing a great game against the United States and an outstanding tournament overall.

  3. These photos made my day. We should be finishing all of our events this way, I think.

  4. bitch slapped for celebrating on ice w/o spectators...hmmmm. who cares?

    found you on ARt Spark

  5. People stop hating... let them do what they do... they won and deserve to celbrate
