Did they get a 15 yard penalty for excessive celebration?

It seems the Canadian Women’s hockey team took to the ice twice yesterday. Once to beat the US for the gold medal and then again later to celebrate their victory by drinking beer and champagne and smoking cigars while wearing their gold medals.

Apparently this behavior irked some of the IOC. I wonder how much of the finance for the booze and cigars came from the “Own the Podium” program.

For photos and some commentary see the National Post.
