Cigars all around
This one just arrived in the inbox, and it's no surprise. To mangle an old saw, a game is only a game - but a good cigar is a smoke:
Funny how this kind of stuff the IOC is worried about is celebrated and indeed televised into the living rooms of the nation in the world of men's pro sports, isn't it?"Although the International Olympic Committee is ready to rain on the celebration parade of the Canadian Women's Hockey Team, one company stands behind the cigar smoking and wine guzzling gold medal champions, Gurkha Cigars! The luxury cigar brand, Gurkha Cigars, is in full support of the group of athletes that were simply celebrating their victory and has even overnighted cases of their new Triad Cigar in order to show it.
"Whether they can or can't attend Sunday's closing ceremonies, these ladies will be celebrating in high luxury with $50 a pop smokes and $1,000 cases. Gurkha has also created a Facebook fan page so others can show their support on behalf of the hockey team: Support Canada's Women's Hockey Team."
