Scott Moir is a very passionate individual.
The Canadian athlete, who won gold medals in ice dancing and sexual tension this week with partner Tessa Virtue, took his passion to the stands on Thursday to cheer on Canada in the women’s ice hockey final.
He stood up. He yelled during the shoot-out. He had a beer in his hand. According to one tweet, he was also buying beers for other spectators.
Canada ended up losing the game to the U.S., but they definitely won the award for best spectator. And also the award for best Twitter commentary about that spectator.
Oh my god Scott Moir holding a beer screaming at the refs I love Canada I feel this country in my bones

Honest question: has Scott Moir rallied a country more as an ice dance gold medallist or as a beer-drinking hockey fan who wants some justice from the refs?
I’ll hang up and listen.

Scott, we salute your patriotism.
You know how I feel about shoot outs in a gold medal game…
