It was a remarkable evening when the Canadian women's olympic hockey miraculously won a gold medal in Sochi games on Thursday, February 20, 2014. After being down 1-0 going in the third period, the Canadians felt no need to give up as they had a clever back-up solution to their problem hiding in their dressing room refrigerators. A total of 40 pies were allegedly baked and sent to the USA dressing room during the second intermission.
The American team was ectatic to receive such a gift and were completely unaware of who delivered them. This really was not a concern for them either.
"I loved the cherry and apple" claimed USA assistant captain, Julie Chuck. "I just couldn't stop. I can't thank whoever baked these so much... I didn't even think about winning gold because the taste of these pies was worth it. I think I had about 3.14 pies in total."
US player, Monique Lamark finally breathed a sigh of relief, "Thank goodness for the rhubarb pies because there was some serious trouble with the plumbing in our dressing room, but luckily we didn't need to call a plumber."
Meanwhile, the Canadians were clearly the strong ones there when they resisted the pies.
"I had to duct tape all our players' mouths during the second intermission... that way I could enjoy 5 pies to myself. I too, wasn't too concerned about winning a gold medal as long as I got the pies, I just couldn't help myself", exlaimed Canadian head coach, Kevin Deen while smacking his lips.
"It's not fair, we baked them. It was a team effort and our coach, Kev promised he'd leave us some for after the game.", cried a depressed Meghan Agosten-Marcienne. The entire team was devastated when they left the ice wearing gold medals, but returned to an empty dressing room.
It seems other members of the team too were depressed for a short period of time, but eventually they realized that their strategy worked and that the gold medal was worth it after all.
Team USA captain, Meghan Duggart, was quite assertive during the post-game press conference while furiously chomping down her slice of pumpkin.. "Well, I learned my lesson and that is never trust a Canadian. In order to be a responsible captain, I must protect my girls from such horrific fates from now on. During intermission, I didn't care that they were from our opponents. The mixed smells of blueberry, rhubarb, apple, and pumpkin wafted through the air of our dressing room and none of us could resist."
Last to be interviewed was head coach, Katey Stan. "Next time, if the Canucks ever pull such a prank again we'll give them a dose of their own medicine and throw the pies in their faces... and well, our players will have to lick them off because they were amazing. Now if our team wants to compete with team Canada we have to open our own bakery."
Post-olympic judges found them guilty of pranking their American bitter rivals, but have not been stripped of their medals as pie-pranking their opponents is not considered illegal according to the olympics legislation, yet.
