Picture It: The Taste of Victory

After receiving their gold medals, Team Canada celebrated with beer and cigars. The IOC has decided to also award the women's hockey team with an investigation for inappropriate behavior for the celebration. Deserved?

I'm not catty. I'm actually quite soft and cuddly. Or so I've been told.

A few critical differences between this situation and the toolbaggery of Michael Phelps:a.) He was not standing on the deck of the Water Cube after an Olympic medal ceremony.b.) He wasn't wearing his Team USA suit or uniform.c.) He wasn't sporting his Olympic medals.d.) He was off-season.And, contrary to popular belief, there is some evidence showing that Michael Phelps did indeed play a role, although limited, in the hanging of the stars.

I think the behavior by the US team after they lost was far more disrespectful and disgusting than the Canadians drinking beer and smoking cigars. What a bunch of unsportsman like, sad face, whiny women!! They still won silver! Would it have killed them to at least put a smile on their faces? Pathetic.

Well I certainly don't think any of them (Canadian women or Lago) should have to leave the games early. But there should have been some kind of reprimanding for their behavior. It seemed like they were quick to boot Lago for his behavior, but when others behaved disrespectfully (and illegally), it was dismissed.

So underage drinking on Olympic ice is acceptable...but photos of a girl kissing your bronze medal gets you sent home a week early. Gotcha.

I don't care what they do to celebrate but I do care where. Hockey is a game of sportsmanship and honor you do not disrespect the ice especially OLYMPIC ice. The IOC's biggest problem was with the illegal underage drinking. The drinking age in Vancouver is 19 and there are photos of 18 year-old players drinking...

I don't understand what the big deal is. It was half an hour after the ceremony and everyone had left (except for this photographer). I think some people are making a stink about it because it's the Olympics and maybe they wouldn't celebrate with a beer and a cigar. I understand some people think it should be limited to the locker room, but what if those pictures were to surface? Every year after the World Series, pictures are released of the players celebrating in the locker room and they are spraying champagne on eachother and smoking cigars. No one cares. They are celebrating. Let them have their moment. However they choose to celebrate is their deal. They deserve it.

Whatever. I'm Canadian so I may be biased. Even though I'm against smoking, I don't think this is a big deal. I probably would lose myself if I were to win a gold medal.
