A Gold Medal performance during and after the game

Let the prudes have their moment of angst and hand-wringing.  That the Canadian Women's Ice Hockey team brazenly partied like boys after winning the Gold Medal Game, to me, only shows how far we've come as a culture.  And I don't think it's a bad thing.  These are young women who worked their tails off, bonded as a team and cut loose after persevering through what probably was the most pressure-packed moment of their lives.  (And keep in mind that these aren't the lilting flowers of femininity that make up Ladies Figure Skating.)

Congratulations on winning the Gold Medal, ladies!  Lift that Molson proudly...and smoke 'em if you got 'em!
