These are Canadians. This is a major violation of their ‘politeness’ ethic.

Let's see:

cute? check
aggressive? check
smoker? check
drinker? check

the only thing missing is personal wealth, as far as I'm concerned.

Drinking beer & smoking cigars out on the ice immediately following an olympic event may not be a crime, but it ain’t very smart.

Why is this a bad thing? Popping champaigne and smoking a cigar... as a celebration for winning an Olympic match?

Puh-lease. Congrats to the ladies.

Seems like some women are simply trying to be men.

I’m not surprised. Winning and grace does not come easily to our neighbors to the north. They looked quite the hard bunch.

They sent a 21 year old US snowboarder home because he had his bronze medal pinned to his crotch and a girl kissed it (the medal).

Then there was the shaggy red headed snowboarder and coach who were hollering four letter words which NBC caught live. They had to apologize for being caught live.

There was another story about some athletes in a bar who got into trouble over something.

Ok, so this Women’s Hockey gal was underage. Then bring her up on charges along with whomever provided the beer or ignore the incident. I’m sure there’s some charges which could be levied upon the IOC for allowing booze into the arena. The committee either needs to chill or put on some big boy panties that don’t wad up. This is nothing compared to years past.

“shaggy red headed snowboarder and coach”

Snowboarders are mere mountain vagrants. Cops should run ‘em off. They are mostly dopers with no jobs, they dress like derelicts, and if they aren’t laying flat in the middle of the trail like a snow angel, they are going 3 times as fast as skiers,,,, they are a nusiance, and a menace.

UMMm you do realize that the ‘shaggy red-headed snowboarder” is a multi-millionaire who actually owns his own mountain in colorado that he uses to train on.

Forgot to add, but I do agree with your assessment of most snow-boarders.

I used to ski into “thier area” and jump the jumps to lots of dirty looks. hehehehe

Probably so,, they DO get rich with their antisocial snowboard schtik. Just like 50-cent and eminem got rich with vile rap lyrics. But that just makes em rich as well as uncouth.

Hehheh. Snowboarders haven't changed in twenty years. The problem is there's a lot more of 'em today and they make the slopes much more dangerous.

They should investigate why the refs were letting the Canadians be offsides almost every time they entered the attack zone but kept calling it on the Americans.
