Oh Canada, How Dare They?!? (WTF edition)

Posted: February 26, 2010 in Sexism, Sports, WTF???

Pfft.

As some of you may know, yesterday, The Canadian Women’s Hockey team beat the USA for gold.

And then those brazen hussies had the NERVE to…celebrate…

Canadians.  Celebrating.  A Gold Medal….in HOCKEY!  How DARE THEY?  How dare these women drink some booze and party up a bit (in the rink, after everyone left), how dare they cut loose and have some fun after winning Gold Medals in the Religion of Canada!!!!!

Ahem.

What a load of horse shit.  Sexist Horseshit no less. 

I, for one, do not think for a second that if it had been the Canadian Men’s Team having a private On Ice Kegger after winning Olympic Gold people would be so damn flustered.  I also think that anyone who harshes on an Olympic athlete for Having Some Fun after competing is a moron.  MORON!  Good gods, these people WORK HARD and stress out to be as good as they are, the deserve to cut loose and have some fun.  None of these women were out starting a bar fight, or behind the wheel, or scaring uptight people…they were having a deserved victory celebration.  That is NO Big Deal….and I really do not think that it would be such a huge scandal if this had been ANY men’s team doing the same thing.

What, are we  supposed to believe that Hockey Players do not like Beer and Gold Medals,  or if they happen to be women hockey players, they sure as hell shouldn’t?

Pfft. 

All I gotta say is this:  Congrats, Team Canada, you played well and won…and oh yeah….CHEERS!

    I heard about this and thought: hell, if my friends and I won gold medals (or did anything remotely awesome) this is how we’d be celebrating…
    Someone mentioned to me that they might’ve been smoking weed. Whether it’s true or not…weed’s legal in BC (possibly all of Canada, though I’m not sure).
