Sports Illustrated weighed in with the great headline: Ain’t No Party Like a Gold Medal Party, calling it the "most authentically cool celebration I’ve seen at these Games," adding "When you win a hockey gold medal for Canada on home soil, I think you’re pretty much given carte blanche."
Canada's Women's Hockey team celebrated a much deserved gold medal on Thursday after beating perennial rivals the U.S. 2-0. Members of the team, returned to the ice some 30 minutes late and
held a kegger held a tasteful celebration with a bit of beer and some champagne. This being an Olympics on home soil, you think the IOC would cut us a little bit of slack. After all, the City of Vancouver and Canada have rolled out the red carpet for these overpaid Swiss bureaucrats.

VANCOUVER -- If only the crowd could have hugged Joannie Rochette for three solid minutes, ensuring she stayed on her feet through a performance that we're told was cathartic but surely must have been hellacious too, they would have all felt better.
The figure skater from Ile Dupas, Que. was everyone's daughter on Tuesday night at Pacific Coliseum, essentially adopted by Canadians not long after her mother Therese died early Sunday of a heart attack at age 55, leaving Joannie and father Normand to grieve under the sporting world's microscope.
But then she did the remarkable, she stood on her own, taller even than anyone could have hoped, with a medal chance still in her grasp at the end of the short program. She's third, locked in for bronze at 71.36, seven points clear of Japan's Miki Ando in fourth.

Ensuring that the ice conditions at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games are the best and most consistent possible for each athlete takes a great deal of hard work by a myriad of individuals, from members of the relevant International Federations to teams of experts from the Vancouver Organising Committee (VANOC) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
