The IOC needs to make up it’s mind

Congratulations to the Canadian Women’s Hockey Team for winning gold last night. 

I hope the ladies enjoy the moment of winning the worlds highest medal in their sport….in their home country.  That has to be an experience to be savored.

Oh course, what does this have to do with Smokes and Booze?

image Well, it appears that the players came back out on the ice in the near-empty arena, smoking cigars and swigging champagne and beer.


Now the IOC is upset and “will investigate” because (as Gilbert Felli, the IOC's executive director of the Olympics said)  "I don't think it's a good promotion of sport values”.

Get a life.

This is the same IOC that :

  • Had to emergency airlift 8500 MORE Condoms to the Olympic village, because 100,000 was not enough.
  • Where the Olympians are given free McDonalds and they hold a McNugget Eating Contest.
  • PUBLISHED this quote as part of the press junket
    • My name is Odd-Bjoern Hjelmeset. I skied the second lap and I f----- up today. I think I have seen too much porn in the last 14 days. I have the room next to Petter Northhug and every day there is noise in there. So I think that is the reason I f----- up. By the way, Tiger Woods is a really good man.

  • and finally has Vancouver over one BILLION dollars in debt for this Olympics.

Yeah IOC……those are great promotions of sport values. 

Me personally, I say congrats ladies…..if I were there, I would buy you are cigars and beer.  It’s about you, not the image that has already been tarnished.
