Scott Moir may be one of themost decorated ice dancers of all time, but that doesn't mean he can't kick it with his fellow Canadians indulging in the country's other icy pasttime: hockey! The gold medalist stole the show from the sidelines of the Canada-US women's hockey gold medal game as he drank beer and heckled refs. The moment has become so iconic that it's being jokingly referred to as the latest Canada Heritage Moment.

It wasn't a pretty game for the homegrown women's hockey team, who have scored gold medals in the last four Olympic Games. On Feb. 21, while Scott represented how all of Canada was feeling, they lost to Team USA in a 3-2 shootout and took home the silver medal.
Surrounded by fellow athletes and with plastic beer cup in hand, the 30-year-old wasn't prepared to take the hit to his patriotism lightly. With arms outstretched, he stole the show on Twitter yellow "Wake up!" and "Are you kidding me?" at refs. The Ontario native was seated between fellow skaters Keegan Messing and Patrick Chan, who took a decidedly more low-key position as spectators.

Scott and his ice dancing partner Tessa Virtue will return to the ice on Saturday (Feb. 24) at the Olympic gala, where they'll skate to The Tragically Hip's "Long time Running" in a tribute to Gord Downie with a routine they performed after the Canadian singer's death last year.
