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?
