Gold Medal Celebration

Nearly an hour after the Canadians won their
third consecutive Olympic gold medal with a
2-0 win over the Americans, the players came
back out on the ice in the near-empty arena,
smoking cigars and swigging beer. (Rebecca
Johnston even tried to drive the Zamboni.) "I
don't think it's a good promotion of sport
values," Gilbert Felli, the IOC's executive
director of the Olympics, told the Associated
Press after learning about the celebration. "If
they celebrate in the changing room, that's
one thing, but not in public. We will
investigate what happened."

Despite Mr. Felli's concerns, BeerNexus
salutes the Canadian team especially for
choosing beer over champagne to celebrate.

Minister of Pubs

The British government has appointed a
minister of pubs, who will be in charge of
trying to slow the rate at which pubs are
closing. Wentworth MP John Healey, will
head a five-minister task force. The Morning
Advertiser reports he is considering tax
breaks for pubs and giving tenants the right to
buy pubs from landlords if they are
threatened with closure.
British Beer and Pub Association said the rate
of pub closures is now at 39 a week.
