The Women Every Real Canadian Male Has A Crush On…

Truth be told, every Canadian male has a deep and abiding crush on every member of the woman’s hockey team and photos of them drinking beer just feed the flame. We have commercials where the players kick doltish men like us all on the ice. They sell us social networking tech. While we have to work on their taste in beer, these are the sweethearts of the nation. Goalie gear, baby. Oh baby.

Did Richard Lautens of the Toronto Star get the best picture of the moment?

    Now that’s probably so very, very true

    Rooted against the Canadian team during the game but glad to see they celebrated properly!

    It gets worse! As a photo in today’s Globe clearly shows, it wasn’t champagne the ladies were enjoying on ice, but Segura Viudas, a perfectly fine cava but as far from champagne as Canadian is from Phillips IPA.

    The real scandal here is why a gutsy gold medal victory doesn’t rate better hootch.

    I think we have a project, Stephen. I have a perfect “in” as I am one player’s fourth cousin in law.
