Olympic Curler's Husband Caught Double-Fisting Beers At Morning Match

Olympic Curler's Husband Caught Double-Fisting Beers At Morning Match

For athletes and their family members, the Winter Olympics must be pretty stressful. All their fellow competitors are at the top of their field (well, except for Elizabeth Swaney), everyone's a bit scared of the North Korean cheerleaders' guards, and only a few people can win medals.

In circumstances like these it's no surprise that some people are turning to booze, as Shawn Germain, husband of the Canadian women's curling skip Rachel Homan, was spotted nervously double-fisting beers at his wife's match against Japan.

What's notable about this casual sporting sesh is that these weren't even the former mid-level professional hockey player's first drinks of the day - they were his third and fourth. At 9am. Now that's a guy you'd want to have as your husband.

According to Thrillist, Germain and Homan didn't have anything to worry about as Canada ended up winning the match 8-3.

Germain later defended his early-morning drinking on Twitter, saying that he'd just had a few beers to help calm his nerves.

He also denied reports that he'd missed the end to the match because he was waiting in line for more bevvies. It could have been worse - he could have left early like half the numpties at football matches.

"You can judge all you want. The stress level is high, I'm not a drunk, I'm just Canadian. #WeBelieve," Germain tweeted.

"For the record, they may have showed that clip after the game but I did not miss the end. I was right where I always am - in row 684 with my father in law,"

WATCH THE NORTH KOREANS ARRIVE AT THE 2018 WINTER OLYMPICS:

Although Canada's win against Japan put them in a decent position in the ten-team round robin, Homan's team lost its next two matches against China and Great Britain before narrowly beating OAR in their final match.

That left Homan's team in sixth place, falling just short of making the medal play-offs and making them the first Canadian curling team at the Olympics not to play for or win a medal.

It could be worse - at least Homan has reason to join Germain on the beers now.
