Disappointed in loss, Canadian player removes silver medal during presentation

The celebration and medal presentation for the women’s hockey finals was definitely the cherry on top of an incredible gold medal game that will go down in infamy, a 3-2 U.S. win over Canada in a shootout. For those who noticed (which was everyone) during the silver medal awards, Canadian player Jocelyne Larocque couldn’t get the second-place medal off of her neck quick enough. It wasn’t around her neck for longer than 1 second before she yanked it off in disgust like a butterfly-collared denim crop-top.

Twitter took to the streets with the wrath of a million Philadelphians:

Things got a little nasty, as twitter tends to do:

This Canadian even disowned Jocelyn Larocque:

On the upside, the USA women’s hockey team won gold tonight in a coronary-inducing episode of an overtime shootout that took six shots to finally end. Jocelyne Lamoureux pulled the oki-doke out of her bag of tricks to score the final goal for the Americans, followed up by the brick-wall of a goalie, Maddie Rooney stonewalling Canada’s final chance to re-tie the game.

To say this ending was epic, would be leaving too much on the table. It was the biggest highlight of the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang for Team USA. This was Team USA hockey gold for the first time in 20 years, breaking Canada’s remarkable streak of success in the Olympics.

As expected, Canada eventually turned to beer-swigging depression, sorry Canada:

At least you’ll always have this Canada, enjoy what you can when you can. At least you have Virtue and Moir:

Here’s hoping all you Canadians make it through the night safely, please don’t initiate the Northern purge. And remember, it’s only hockey.
