"Girls Gone Wild" considerably different in Canada - 02-26-10

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

We'd be lying if we said we had an interest in women's hockey. If that makes us sexist pigs, so be it. But we're honest sexist pigs.

But regardless of our preferences, we do regret we didn't give it enough attention in this space over the past two weeks. There were a few local connections inolved with the top two teams in the world. We should've done better.

Hopefull we can make up for that a bit with this post. There were plenty of quality photos from yesterday's games. We sorted out some of the best.

-Center ice:

-We don't want to accuse Canada of having too many men women (Is there political correctness with penalities?), but...:

-The Canadians and their gold medals:

-Canada goaltender Kim St. Pierre and her son:

-We're calling a flag foul on this one:

-Canadian defenseman  Colleen Sostorics catching a ride:

-Happy times for Canada forward Gillian Apps, the daughter of former Penguins forward Syl Apps:

-Apps being popular:

-Happy times for Canadian defenseman Haley Irwin, right, and forward Meghan Agosta, a Mercyhurst product:

-Agosta getting a light from teammate Jayna Hefford:

-Agosta making perhaps the best face ever:

-Irwin giving teammate Tessa Bonhomme a re-fill:

-Reflective times for Canada forward Gina Kingsbury:

-Canadian goaltender Charline Labonte taking some photos:

-St. Pierre and teammate Caroline Ouellette are Canadian apparently:

-Happy, relaxing times for Marie-Philip Poulin, St. Pierre and Labonte:

-A less than subtle reminder for the United States of who won:

-Sad times for United States defenseman Molly Engstrom:

-Sad times for Erika Lawler:

-Sad times for the United States:

-United States forward Jinelle Zaugg-Siergiej and goaltender Brianne Mclaughlin, a Robert Morris product, had at least one fan:

-Your mom told you not to pick at scabs for a reason:

-Marc-Andre Fleury apparently brought a set of his old pads along, grew his hair out, dyed it blonde, changed his name to Noora Raty and snuck into the bronze medal game between FInland and Sweden:

-"Raty" had some space issues with Sweden's Pernilla Winberg:

-Conan O'Brien Finnish president Tarja Halonen rooted on her team:

-And since we didn't get to see the men's team wear them, Sweden's women's team sported their marvelous blue "tre kroner" jerseys:
