IOC To Investigate Canadian Women's Hockey Team For Celebration

The International Olympic Committee will investigate the actions of Canadian women's hockey players who celebrated their gold medal victory Thursday night by swigging beer and smoking cigars on the ice in Vancouver.

A number of players, including 18-year-old superstar Marie-Philip Poulin, were drinking alcohol on the ice following the team's 2-0 defeat of the United States. (The legal drinking age in British Columbia is 19.) Players lingered for more than 70 minutes after the awards ceremony reveling in the arena, which was empty except for media and arena staff.

    They're Canadians, for crying out loud. We should be thankful they weren't swigging beer and smoking cigars during the GAME.

    They shouldn't have been celebrating on the ice like that. And those that couldn't drink shouldn't have been drinking.

    Leave them alone in their moment of camaraderie and glory, they deserve it, they are the best in the world, and they are not doing something deemed morally wrong are they? They won, let them celebrate. . . Down with the PC 2 shoers
