Give the girls a break

So despite winning gold against the US, the Canada women’s hockey team are ‘under investigation’ merely for smoking cigars and quaffing champers in their uniforms on the ice half an hour after virtually everybody had gone home. The whistleblower was an over-attentive Associated Press reporter. That person should be investigated for being such a sneak. The players deserved to unwind after such a high pressure tournament and win against their biggest foes. The International Olympic Committee should have immediately dismissed the incident as just some players enjoying the moment and deservedly unwinding after months of intense training. They are humans after all, aren’t they?

I’m looking forward to returning to Cayman life. Back to the tropical rays after nearly three weeks wrapped like a mummy in chilly Vancouver. A plate of curry goat, rice and peas will be consumed rapidly and I’m looking forward to getting a commentary on how the world renowned CFP Buzz Crusaders crushed Jason Harper’s WestStar 13-0 in the WestTel five-a-side football league.
