Women's Hockey Team Booz-Up

I am so proud of the Women's Hockey team's achievement however their post-game booz-up on the ice has left a very dark mark on an otherwise flawless performance.
There is no disputing that they earned the gold. I am just so dishearted about how they took their gold medals and such a prestigious hard-earned win "the Canadian way" then dragged it through the mud to the corner bar! Whatever where they thinking?!?!? Where was the coach/assistant coaches/ANYBODY!!!!!!
Mark my words, this will NOT just go away. This is a stigma that many of the ensuing teams (especially the upcoming mean's team) will bear the brunt of, for years!
.....soooo sooo sad.
As a side bar - as if this isn't bad enough - one of the girls is under-age. .....wonderful!

Oh come on, they had a couple drinks and smoke a couple stogies.

If that isn't Canadian, I can't imagine what is.

If you recorded the sounds of all the alcoholic beverage containers being opened that eve, upon the revelation of their win, and played them back all at once, you could have likely registered it on a seismograph in Russia!

This is much ado about nothing. First, you have reporter whining at the IOC about what the women did in a virtually EMPTY area, not open to the public at that time, then you have a Euroweenie IOC that hasn't caught up to the times.

And if you have an issue with underage drinking, avoid Europe altogether!

Anybody else smell sour grapes here?

I heard some of them were smoking cigars. An athlete smoking, what were they thinking? An athlete should know better than that. I can understand drinking. After winning the gold, there is bound to be a touch of high spirits. As to underage drinking, well nobody supports these things, but they do happen, it is not unheard of.

But smoking? They need a lesson on the ill effects of smoking. I would think the last thing an athlete would do is smoke.

The last I heard, you don't inhale when smoking a stogie...

No you don't, you merely take the smoke in, taste the flavor and blow it out. I love handing someone a cigar and watch them try to smoke it for the first time...cough, cough.....this is great...cough cough.

Anyways.....the girls partied...let's take their medal away and lock them up, how dare they celebrate a gold medal....what were they thinking.

They had a celebration, and smoked a few cigars.
They're gold medal athletes who deserve it.

You don't think the skiers, or curlers celebrate?

I suppose it would be the dignified Canadian thing to go sit down with Peter Mansbridge for a 3 hour discussion on the academic origins of hockey or something.

No kidding. They earned it, let them party. If they want to fire up a cigar who gives a hoot.

Not smoked often.

Big deal.

Clearly a serious problem.

I suggest a long expensive stay at Colpy's Home for Wayward Floozies....where they could get intense instruction on the ins and outs of floozism.

So they had a party...Good for them! If more people would let their hair down and blow off a bit of steam once in a while, the world would be a better place. Who knows? We might end up with fewer uptight, perfect (in their own mind), narrow-minded people sitting in judgement of other people's behaviour and feeling compelled to comment on it for no particular reason other than to feed their perpetually starved ego. MYOFB.

Oh yay. Another Tempest in a tea pot.

Being from Alberta, I kind of laugh at the whole "under age" drinking thing too. How is it people are old enough to vote, old enough to go to jail and old enough to serve and possibly die for their country at age 18 but NOT old enough to have a drink? Are they legally adults or not? This 19-21 drinking age crap is inconsistent BS.

Quite so. And that of course must be considered a disturbing trend, if you care to Google it and find the proof - in the form of statistical data - that the Olympics are no doubt contributing to degenerate behaviour in our young athletes. This of course results in a disastrous tearing of our social fabric and will require the services of an entire team of social engineers along with various pieces of legislation to prevent any such occurrences in the future.

There are only a select few with the correct level of insight into the very essence of life itself that have the ability, nay, the OBLIGATION, to impose their observations, values, and solutions on the "morons" (the average people) because they - as our oracles - are the ones who keep us from harm and self-destructive behaviour as we stumble along the path of life in our miserable, ignorant, day to day mortal existences. After all, somebody has to do the real work.

I can't believe this is even an issue. The sport is called "Women's Hockey". Not "Little Girl's Hockey". Women are allowed to have a celebratory drink after the games. Especially women who have won us a gold medal. The players all took the following Olympic oath:

Quote:

"In the name of all competitors I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, committing ourselves to a sport without doping and without drugs, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams."

I see nothing in that oath that would prohibit having a snort after your sport is over.

Kevin Martin is known to have a few wobblies after a game...

First of all this is a special once in a life time occasion, second who was harmed by it? Is drinking beer and champaign an evil thing? All I can say is if this is F-----g news, then it's getting to be a dull world. So one participant was a month shy of the legal age- I guess none of us drank before the appointed date. What would you like to see happen? The game winning participant shackled and hauled off to jail? Maybe this comes under the heading of MINDING YOUR OWN F------G BUSINESS.

OH BUT #Juan, one of the participants was 30 days shy of being legal. Maybe her team mates are to blame for contributing to juvenile delinguency and should be shackled, hand cuffed and hauled off to jail to be processed to the fullest extent of the law...................at least that would make one poster happy................:lol :

Response to post #3.

I smoked for 30 years, then gave it up cold turkey, and said many times (AND I MEANT IT) that no amount of money could ever entice me to go back to smoking again.

However, if I had the talent, strength, ambition, desire and work ethic to be a part of a Gold Medal Winning Olympic team, I would join my team mates for a few puffs on a cigar.

This is nothing but a tempest in a tea pot.

Yeah, I wonder how life shortening the smoking of one cigar would be, statistically that is- probably 10-12 seconds.

The only problem i see is it was in "public view" ok so next time they just celebrate next time in the room. Its not uncommon for any team to do something similar to this.

It does not matter if you are from usa,russia, mexican, etc... there a rules you are suppose to obey especially since you got other countries in your country.

Yup , Did the girls behave badly because they were drinking, did they get in trouble with the law?
Then like you say .....sour grapes !
Did anyone think theyd cross their legs and drink thier tea with the pinky sticking out?
I hear alot of whining for nothing.

This will irreperably harm canandian floozie sports in the eyes of the world. I wonder if they have considered a nude calendar to raise training money for the next Olimpdic booze up.
