Can I just say that I have been amazed during the Olympics at how the female athletes are such amazing role models for girls? What a dramatic improvement over the vapid and appearance obsessed females that have invaded our popular media.
Cindy Klassen, the women’s bobsleigh teams, the Canadian women’s hockey team…as I told my girls, these women are an inspiration. They have found a passion and are brave enough to follow it, and they are eminently more concerned with what their bodies can DO than how they look.
And I for one have no problem with the women’s hockey team celebrating with beer and cigars after their gold medal victory. What a perfect example of a media stoked ruckus
over nothing. Didn’t everyone (including me) find Jon Montgomery hilarious in his post victory beer marathon up at Whistler
, most of which
dotingly by an approving media?
The women’s hockey team earned the right to celebrate any way they choose. The fact that they did celebrate their victory in a full-blooded way illustrates that they didn’t stop for a moment to think about packaging themselves for public consumption.
Now that’s refreshing.
