And cigars, too, when you're the gold medal-winning Canadian women. They celebrated on the ice with champagne, cigars and a couple of their players' children. American Jenny Potter brought her kids out for the medal ceremony too, and there were a lot of post-game tears on the U.S. side. Vancouver was possibly the last shot for some of them. Angela Ruggiero of Simi Valley, Harvard and "The Apprentice" won gold at the 1998 games but would have loved another; she would be 34 by the time the next Olympics comes around. Noted: Gillian Apps, a star scorer for Canada, is the daughter of former Los Angeles Kings forward Syl Apps. NBC color commentator Cammi Granato captained the 1998 gold medal winers, is the first woman in the U.S. Hockey Hall of fame and used to be a Kings broadcaster. (Her older brother Tony played for the Kings.)
In figure skating: Quebec's Joannie Rochette bested Arcadia's Mirai Nagasu for the bronze medal, but nobody seems unhappy that's the way it turned out.
