Canadian Hockey Team Under Fire For Drinking On Ice

Looks like Scotty Lago isn’t the only Olympic medalist who shows poor judgment when he celebrates. The entire Canadian Women’s hockey team celebrated their gold-medal win last night by drinking some brews and smoking cigars on the ice, and the International Olympic Committee is not thrilled with their behavior.

Several team members, including underaged Marie-Philip Poulin who is 18, have come under fire for their actions (which took place in a near-empty rink, with only teammates and members of the media inside the arena). Gilbert Felli, director of the Olympic Games, said that their alcohol consumption was “not what we want to see” from athletes at the games. Does Felli know about the legendary sexual activities the Olympic Village are known for? Because that seems like something a little more scandalous than a lying on the ice with a bottle of Champagne or our favorite image of the night, player Colleen Sostorics trying to take the Zamboni out for a spin. We guess if you have to scapegoat someone’s poor behavior at the games, the old adage is true: Blame Canada! [Photos: Getty Images]
